Baby Shower Favor

This will be my last baby shower idea post. I really wanted to give our guests a little something to take home with them when they left the shower. After looking high and low all I could find were incredibly expensive things or incredibly "tacky" things (y'all know what I mean) neither of which I wanted. I got the idea that since we were going to be experiencing chilly temperatures for awhile it might be a good idea to give our guests something that would "warm" them up. I got hot cocoa, cup a soup, and tea bags, got out my craft box and went to work. This is what I came up with:

You probably can't read the poem I wrote so here it is:

A baby warms our hearts
As everyone knows.
This favor should do the same
Right down to your toes!

I was able to scrounge up enough little metal tags so I could even put the new baby's initials on it!

Well, that's it! The shower is Sunday so I will try to get pics up then. BTW, in only a few short weeks I will be a Nana!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it:)
