Growing up, my grandmother always made me eat at least one spoonful of black-eyed peas every New Year’s Day for good luck in the new year – a tradition with origins in the history of the South. This childhood experience – along with my battle-tested belief that Alka-Seltzer is just about the best remedy that modern medicine has to offer for over-indulgence – inspire these cheeky little favors for your New Year’s Eve fete. Cleverly wish your guests good luck with a handful of black-eyed peas and good health (at least the morning after) with a couple of Alka-Seltzer! – Mandy of Fabric Paper Glue
Treat Bags in Two Sizes
Free Printable Favor Tags printed on cardstock
Step One: Depending on the size of your treat bags, you may want to trim a few inches off the top of each bag.
Step Two: Pre-fold the tops of the larger treat bags over about 1″, and the smaller about 3/4″ inches.
Step Three: Fill each larger treat bag with a small handful of black-eyed peas.
Step Four: Pop a couple of Alka-Seltzer into each of the smaller bags.
Step Five: Stack the smaller bag on top of the larger bag, and use strips of washi tape to affix the favor tags to the front and close the flaps on the back.
