It is a cute little party favor for you to put any kind of candies of your choice that will fit in the clear plastic box.
This party favor shows how much you appreciate your guests for coming to your baby shower party. The design has a message saying ” Thanks For Coming! ” on both the back and front.

Oh yeah by the way, you can select between the sizes of this party favor to make. You can choose the options to make a bigger one or a smaller one. You may be able to see the difference with the feature image on the top of this article. The blue one for the boys is the smaller and the pink for the girls is bigger.
The bigger one can hold more candies since the plastic box will be bigger versus the smaller one. The big plastic box can hold up to 27 mints and the smaller one can hold up to 13 mints. Just to let you know I am referring to the mints that I was using for the demo on the video.

DIY Stork For Baby Shower Video
Please do watch the below video to see how it is done. To be honest, I usually prefer watching a video to reading the written instructions.
Yes, I am more of a visual person. If you like you can do both. By doing so, it will re enforce your understanding and you’ll be less likely to make mistakes.
Besides, the video is not that long. It is around 8 minutes long.
Here are the written instructions on how to make this stork baby shower favor. The only challenge making this baby favor is cutting out the wrapper and the stork. It requires a little bit of time to get it done.
Despite that, it is still very fun to make it. At least I enjoy making it. Besides, it will look super cute in your baby shower party.
Step 1 – Please carefully cut out the printable stork and wrapper.
Step 2 – Place whichever side of the wrapper down on the table in front of you.
Step 3 – Place a ruler on the white line and use a bone folder to draw a couple of times on the white lines. Do the same with the other white line. Yes, you need to do this with a total of two white lines. This will make it easy to fold it and it looks much better on the folded part.
Step 4 – Next turn the wrapper over and try to fold it with the tail facing toward the top. Do the same thing for the other side as well.
Step 5 – Put some of your favorite candies in a clear plastic box if you haven’t done so already. For the clear plastic box and mint candies that I am using in the size of 1.5″ x 1.5″ x1.5″ for the demo, it can hold about 10 to 13 mints.
Step 6 – Make a T shape with the double sided tape in the middle of the clear plastic box filled with candies on the bottom part of the clear plastic box. Make sure you don’t do this on the top part of the box where you should be able to have access to the candies.
Step 7 – Then place the clear plastic box on the middle of the wrapper and press it down for a couple of times by using one of your hands. This is to prevent the plastic box from sliding off or out of the wrapper.
Step 8 – Align both tails together nicely and use a stapler to staple them together in the middle of the edge. It might be a little easier to hold the corner of the tails to staple them together.
Step 9 – Next use a satin ribbon of your choice to tie a bow tie around the place where you staple the tails together. This is to make it look much nicer and to cover the staple. I use a white color satin ribbon in the video. You can also use a blue color one to match the blue elephant design. If you are making a girl design then you can use either white or pink color satin ribbon.
Step 10 – Next I will use some clear glue to stick the stork on top of the tail of the wrapper. Be sure to not put too much glue. By doing so, the glue will spread out of the stork’s beak and it won’t look as nice with glue sticking out on the wrapper.
Step 11 – Have a lot of fun and enjoy your baby shower with your family and friends.
