DIY Cotton Candy Party Favors

I recently discovered that there’s different types of cotton candy. Apparently, there’s Persian Cotton Candy (or Fairy Floss) also known as “Pashmak” that is available in various soft hues and flavors including Rose, Pistachio, and Vanilla. It is a lot less fluffy/cotton like, but more light and wispy. Eat Drink and Chic had this great idea that since Pashmak resembles soft wisps of hair, it would look great inside these translucent paper envelopes.


Here is their template and tutorial for this DIY project

  • Pashmak – I’ve used Vanilla (aqua label), Rose (pink label) and Pistachio (green label) flavours from Pariya. You can opt to use only one flavour with different coloured labels or even the same coloured label throughout- whatever suits the style of your wedding/party. Pashmak is not cheap, however you only need to give a small amount per guest.
  • Transluscent Paper with white polka dots for the envelopes.
  • White printable sticker paper or white card for labels- I’ve used a textured white card.
  • Double sided tape or glue.
  • Scalpel and Scissors.
  • Color Printer.
  • Rounded corner punch – for envelopes
  • Small clear plastic sealable bags- these will need to fit inside the transluscent bag. (If they are too long they can always be folded back slightly).
  • Label design in assorted colours- download below.
  • Envelope template- DOWNLOAD HERE

They also had really swell printables for the labels!
