Party Favors for Bunco Beauties * Dollar Store Craft Challenge

Have you ever played Bunco?

My daughter is a member of a very casual group of players.  When she hosted a Bunco game a couple of months ago, they needed a sub.  I joined their group for the evening and had a wonderful time!  When chatting about it with my dear friend, Anne, she said, "We should start a group!"  Feelers were sent out to gauge interest and within a day, we had plenty of girls who were just looking for an excuse to party!  😏  I volunteered to host the first three months in hopes our little group would gel and continue.  Anne and I decided it would be "Girls Only".  Our first game was a big hit with plenty of players. 

For snacks I chose a pie theme.  Lemon Meringue Pie, Chocolate Cream Pie and Frito Pie.  😋  Everyone laughed and dug into the food!  Being a horrible blogger, no photos were taken of the prepared nibbles.  Hey!  There's always next time, right?

Since this was our first game, I had the crazy idea to give everyone dice as a party favor.  Here's where the Dollar Store craft challenge comes into my post.

Meet this month's co-hosts!

Have you noticed the price of Bunco games?!  Depending on how "deluxe" you want yours to be, they can get pretty dang expensive!  No, thank you!  I was thrilled when I walked into my local dollar store and noticed dice were available 5 for $1.  Yes, please!  I bought them all.  All.  Of.  Them.  I also grabbed balloons, plates, super cute napkins

And some white favor boxes!

I stumbled across this darling  FREE PRINTABLE  which became our theme for the evening.  My color printer died, but there's a ridiculously large pile of paper in my craft room.  A lovely pink shade in a heavier weight paper was found and used for the FREE PRINTABLE.  Next the favor boxes were folded and the shiny gold polka dot napkin was tucked inside for a bit of shimmer.  Each one held nine dice and three pink balloons.  White curling ribbon held on the pink tags.

For less than $3 each, these were lovely Party Favors for my sweet friends, The Bunco Beauties!

    Your little party favours turned out beautifully, I bet your friends felt really special.

  8. Such a cute idea! I've never played Bunco before. I'll have to find out how it's played. I love a good game. 😊
