  1. I love these ideas but, they are just a bit pricey for bigger party’s. I would rather something smaller to by for party favors. Nail file and nail polish one was amazing.

    1. I agree. It’s not meant to be rude, but I was thinking something that you could craft yourself would’ve been more ideal. Thanks for the ideas though!!

  2. I was looking for things that I could make (such as cute little crafts and such). I love the ideas, but they are a bit expensive for if you made several.

  3. I think these are really good ideas. I’m making the “thank you” bags for favors for my daughter’s sweet 16 party.
