Roeshel’s Tennis Party Favors

by Roeshel on October 23, 2010

Remember when Roeshel did this project using Moo Mini Cards?

What to do with left over Moo?  Make some gift tags!  Roeshel made these cute tennis party favors for the end-of-season tennis banquet for her daughter’s tennis team and finished them off with left over Moo Mini Cards.

Materials: Tennis balls, candy, cardboard paper towel tube, favor bags, ribbon and Moo Mini Cards (Roeshel used leftover ones but you can create something personalized – up to 100 individual images.  You design them!  Great for gift wrapping for the upcoming holidays too!)

Tools: A circle to trace (a shot glass is a good size), pen, utility knife, scissors

1.  Trace a circle onto the surface of the tennis ball.  Roeshel used a shot glass.

2.  Using an utility knife, cut out the circle traced. 

Did you ever wonder what the inside looked like?  It’s black rubber and a little dirty.  Wipe out the inside.

3.  Fill tennis ball with candy.

4.  Cut a ring off the end of a cardboard paper towel tube to use to keep the ball standing up.

5.  Finishing touches:  Place the stand and ball filled with candy inside of a cellophane favor bag, tie with a ribbon and add a Moo Mini Card tag…

These were a big hit with the girls’ tennis team!

Really cute idea Roeshel! Of course I think your Moo cards are so fabulous too.

Hi! I love this idea. I’m looking to use moo cards for my wedding favors but I can’t seem to figure out how to attach the cards to the ribbon. Did you tie the navy ribbon first then use a thin twine to attach the moo card?

Hi Renee,

I used small twist ties (after punching a hole in the moo mini card). Twine would work too if the ribbon is too wide.

Good luck!
