DIY Cupcake Favors

These cupcake treat containers will make the perfect party favor for your next birthday party, baby shower or holiday party! They are easy to make favors, aren’t super expensive, but add a definitive air of fun and creativity to your celebration. And of course, that means they won’t require a ton of work or money on your end, but will leave party guests highly impressed by your craftiness!

You can fill the baking cup with color coordinating gumballs that match your party or another type of candy if you prefer. Don’t forget to check out the plethora of cupcake recipes on Celebrations to go with your party favors. My personal favorite is the creamsicle cupcake recipe, I can’t wait to try it!
