with bridal shower and baby shower season here and with my sister in law’s coming up later this summer, i’ve been brainstorming inexpensive DIY favor ideas that are easy to make in big batches. i teamed up with paper mart, who makes a huge variety of packaging for favors and parties for this very easy and suuuper cute favor idea. these are so easy, you can literally make a dozen of these at a time in a couple of minutes!
- paper mart plastic jars (i used 8oz)
- paper mart white plastic lids
- epsom salt
- sea salt
- baking soda
- essential oils
- dried rosebuds
- dried calendula petals
- printable labels *
- full page labels *
*i designed the labels for a full page 8.5 x 11″ sheet, which you can easily then trim down to size
combine 1 cup epsom salt, 1 cup sea salt and ½ cup of baking soda in a large bowl. pour 20 drops of essential oils in, if you want to use. stir together, and then drop in a liberal amount of the dried florals. stir and distribute into your jars.
( this amount makes about two jars worth of soaking salts, so if you want to make in larger portions, just do one part epsom / one part sea salt / one half part baking soda. )
print out labels and cut out, carefully apply to each jar and tighten lids! i designed a variety of color options for you as well!
i really couldn’t believe how easy it was to make these and what a big visual difference it makes to throw in some dried flower petals — they’d also make fun party favors for girl parties or galentines day. PS here’s the link for the brass spoon!
