DIY Tutorial: Cheeky New Year’s Eve Party Favors + Printable Tags

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
