Party favors can be expensive. Personalize handmade party favors using foam craft cut out shapes and letters and include the theme using the pictures cut from wrapping paper, Valentines, cards, etc. For my granddaughter's birthday, I cut bookmarks and heart-shaped magnets and used Valentines, which were purchased after they were marked down, to add the Tinkerbell, which was the theme of her party.

I am looking for creative ideas made from Foamies material like frogs, cd, etc.
Well you might look at craft sites, like oriental trading or S & S, and get ideas of things to make out of foam, like wreaths for the seasons, tic tac toe games and such. Also just google 'craft foam crafts' and see what websites turn up.
I have seen crafty people make "hanging" items with old CD's and the FunFoam. The ones I have seen are made from very simple pictures found in a very young child's coloring book. For instance a red bird, cut from red funfoam, cut two, one for each side, glue them to the CD. Then cut one set of wings,(with a long rectangular piece between the wings) that are placed in the "hole" of the cd. Use fishing line as a hanger. The ones I have seen are frogs, crabs, fish, cat faces, kangaroos, all sorts of birds, sunflowers, butterflies, ladybugs, and things that are for particular holidays. Hope this is what you were talking about.
I am looking for directions for a Halloween wall or door decoration that used craft foam. It was three different sized "candy corn" triangles made with strips going across of white, orange, and yellow craft foam just like real candy corn. Each candy corn had a face with a black craft foam smiling mouth and black and white jiggly eyes from a craft store. Also, each of the three candy corn faces was a different size, like 5-inches, 7-inches, and 9-inches, approximately.
Go to OrientalTrading.com and put in candy corn in the search and this craft will come up. It can be purchased precut, all you do is glue. I love this site for cheap, fun crafts.
Thanks a bunch, Traci, for the answer to my post. I checked out orientaltrading.com, and that is exactly the craft I was describing. Thanks again!
