Angel lollipop party favors and #freeprintableFor the Angel first birthday party, among all the sweets and whipped cream treats we had some party favors for our guests to take home! They are fairly quick and easy to put together, and I’m even providing a free lollipop birthday party favor free printable so you can make these at home!


Angel lollipop party favors #freeprintable After you print out your free printable lollipop party favor file to white cardstock, cut the shapes out. You’ll have a set of wings and an oblong shape for each party favor. Fold along the lines.

Angel lollipop party favor assemblyUsing a hole puncher, hold together the tops of the folded paper and punch two holes through both sheets. String your ribbon through the holes, then tie the ribbon off into a bow in the front.

Angel lollipop party favor wingsAttach the wings to the back of the favor with a bit of glue. Push the end of your lollipop up through the center of the favor through the hole you created between the ribbon and paper.

Finish off by creating a circular loop of ribbon or paper for a halo at the top of your lollipop stick, and glue it on.

Hope these little angels make a perfect present for your party guests!
