Harry Potter party favors

I already sneaked a picture of these little favor boxes on instagram, but I wanted to show them off a bit more here:

Sofia is turning 11, and I knew these delicate little necklaces would make the perfect pre-tween thank you gift. I found them on Amazon *here.* (I'm linking the Canadian Amazon, but I know you can find many different sellers on the dot com side. Also, the price seems to have gone up since I ordered. They were a few bucks cheaper last month!)

The packaging was so fun to make:

I used a little cube die to create the boxes. The die is by Clear and Simple Stamps, and honestly one of my favorites. It's the perfect size, doesn't use a lot of paper, and you only need a tiny bit of adhesive to hold it all together.

I then printed my tag (thanks for being a wonderful muggle!) and adhered it to close the box, to seal it closed. I also printed Hedwig and scored the bottom of his body, so that he could sit up. Super simple, but the 3D aspect really makes the packaging more special.

As you can kind of see from these pictures, I'm starting to set up our weekend party table.  I like to work really slowly. Everything is already on the table, and I'll be starting the baking later on today. No stress! This makes the process a joy for me, and hopefully also for my birthday girl!



  1. Love it! I can't wait to see the whole party!

  2. Oh my goodness!! These are fabulous and you are amazing!!!

  3. Oh, such fun, Elena! My Katie read Harry Potter when she was in grade school, when it first came out. I ended up reading the books too at the alarm of a neighbor, that my child was reading them. And I made sure she knew if was fiction and good verses evil. We fell head over heels in love with Harry, Hermoine, Ron and Jenny, Hagrid, etc. Katie is 26 and we still love Harry Potter! LOL. Her baby is almost 4 and she wants to watch Harry P w/Doby in it because she's all about the DVDs. Haha. I know your daughter and her friends will enjoy this party so much. Thanks for sharing!

  4. OMG!!! You are an incredible mother...I'm sure your little one will adore you in the years to come and she will have such a good memory of this wonderful party! The necklaces are super cute and the boxes are pretty nice! I love the little Edwige!
