Make old-time candy-cup baby shower favors by filling baking cups with old-fashioned candy, wrapping them with cellophane and tying them with ribbon. You need baking cups, old-fashioned candy, cellophane, scissors, ribbon and tags.
- Purchase the baking cups
Find baking cups made with stiff paper or material that is roughly the size of a cupcake. Baking cups made to hold single servings of brioche are a good choice.
- Fill the cups with candy
Find some old-fashioned hard candy that comes in a variety of colors and shapes. Place several pieces in a single baking cup so the baking cup is full but not overflowing. Fill multiple cups.
- Wrap the baking cups
Purchase a roll of cellophane or individual cellophane bags large enough to hold the baking cups. Cut the roll of cellophane into squares. Place a baking cup in the middle of a cellophane square, and draw the corners of the cellophane up and over the baking cup.
- Prepare the ribbon
Hole punch the top of a printed paper tag. Thread it onto a colorful ribbon.
- Add the ribbon
Wrap the ribbon around the cellophane just above the baking cup. There should be a bushy, decorative tail of cellophane just above the ribbon. Tie the ribbon into a knot. Repeat for the rest of the cups.
