I did these for Jenny. I love doing these but they take a lot of time. It might just be me but I find it hard to tie a small bow on a skinny little sucker stick. So I would suggest doing these a couple days in advance. It was fun to do these rattles for a boy this time although I found it harder since I couldn't do all the frilly hearts and flowers. I did throw in a few M&M flowers however.
I used mini cupcakes again with mini gumdrops for the end of the rattle piece. I inserted the sticks once they were all decorated. I found it easier for the stick to go in if I first stuck a sharp toothpick in to cut the wrapper for me.
