I made these favors for my daughter-in-law's baby shower last winter. I ordered specialty pink & white M&M's with "Baby's Due 2-22" and "Congrats Shan & J" on them. The fronts each had 3 babies from the Baby Time Stampin' Around wheel. I rolled them onto paper, cut out the sizes I needed and then cut out a separate one and used a dimensional to raise it. I colored them with Marvy pens. This upload shows how the toppers looked before I scored and folded them. That way you can see the front as well as the saying I put on the back. The poem on the back (that I got from an internet site) reads:
Thanks so much for stopping by
But as I am a little shy
I thought today I'd stay away
Mommy said that it's OK.
Friendship is so hard to measure
But something Mom (and Dad) will treasure
I hope to see you very soon
Because in here there ain't much room.
These were a big hit. My daughter-in-law never even opened hers--she wanted to save it. I don't think she'll be able to save it in a scrapbook that way (lol), but I gave her some photos, so she can use those for her book! TFL

These are cute! I too am going to save the saying if you don't mind to keep if for some upcoming baby showers I need to plan! I just saw the M&M's add in a portion of the Sunday paper and already called to order the M&M's for the first baby shower in February!
