Strawberry Marshmallows Pops

If you follow my blog, you know that I am always trying to find affordable sweets for parties.  Here is another super easy sweet that will for sure be a crowd pleaser at our party this Sunday. 

I found this bird house at Good Will for 99 cents and just gave it a new look!
Mallo-licious - strawberry marshmallows
lollipops sticks
stryfoam and a some kind of container
Simply stick the marshmallow on to the stick, tie a ribbon and you are done! How simple is that?
Super simple treat but finding the right way to display it,  makes it look like you spent big bucks! ;)

For now, the pops will be sealed in a bag until Saturday!


TP roll pillow box favor {Vintage Style}

Since I started this blog, I had my share of posts using TP roll as box favors for most of my parties. Since I am on a Vintage roll over here and had some left over doilies and ribbons from a previous project,  I decided to make vintage gift boxes perfect for little favors!

I also made TP party favors for my Just for FUN party

Here are some of my previous  TP roll projects:
