DIY Candy Party Favor

I may not be the Queen of DIYs in the Philippines but I always surprise my friends and churchmates with the party favors I make. After all the LEGO party decors and favors for my son’s birthday last month, I made these candy favors for our church youth’s Back-to-School event.

What can you do with a WASHI TAPE?

If you’re into DIYs….Do-It-Yourself not do-it-yaya… you’ll find a roll so helpful. Cut and paste. Tapos.
