For a sweet personalized favor at a butterfly birthday party or baby shower, you can't beat the cost savings of cutting your own butterfly favor boxes!

If you don't have a Cricut yet, I highly recommend getting one! She has a Cricut Maker {on my wish list} but I'm still rocking my Cricut Explore Air just fine!

Now what to fill it with? I'm completely in love with these little butterfly soaps in soft pastels by the Mad Hatter Party Box. It just screams baby shower to me! But I know many a little lady that would love their own little soap and as a mom I like that it's not candy!
