Don't you love it when a friend shows up at the door with a shoebox full of Lifesavers, jellybeans, and ribbon and teaches you something new?
I helped a friend prepare for her daughter's baby shower this weekend by constructing 50 pacifier favors using just those supplies!
I'm past that particular phase, but I recognized it and swear I saw it linked up here once or twice, but couldn't find the link to save my life. Luckily, my friend came prepared to teach, so grab your supplies.
Baby Shower Candy Pacifiers
Life Savers Mints
Pink Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
1/2 inch Sequin Pins (pictured below)
Set yourself up on the back porch with tv trays so you can also watch the wiffle ball home run derby in the back yard.
Follow these simple steps:
1. Tie a bow around one Life Saver mint.
2. Insert pin through knot in ribbon from behind.
3. Place second mint on top.
4. Stick the end of your jelly bean into the hole in the Life Saver and through the pin to anchor.
**Note** Though you could never eat the pin without eating the ribbon, some readers were still worried and came up with an alternative "glue" made from melted white chocolate you might wish to substitute just in case you have some ribbon-eating guests :)
