I found the cutest miniature milk jars at Michael’s the other day, and I thought they’d make really great party favors! Honestly they’d work for any party theme, but once I decided to fill them with colorful miniature gumballs, and I thought… CIRCUS PARTY!

To make the favors I put a printable straw flag on a paper straw, and put the straws into the mini milk bottles. Then, I filled them with mini gumballs, keeping the straw in the center of the bottle.

The finishing touch – a printable favor tag, tied on with some yellow-and-white twine. So cute, and so easy!
