I think these are sweet, and very cute. I would still have 1 other type of favor there [maybe something edible], for those who won’t want to bother with that, or just plain our don’t care for animals.

I love this idea. I actually have a bird seed recipe (that I mix up on the stove with low heat) that looks similar to this. The birds LOVE it. I put it out in one of those bird suet holders. I would go crazy (in a good way) if somebody gave me this as a favor. And it would look great in photos! The only thing I can say is be careful with them/dont bump them around too much so pieces dont break off.

@bella731:  I actually just made a bunch of these for xmas gifts!  They turned out super cute and it’s pretty easy.  Everyone really liked them, too.  

It would definitely take a while to make 50-100+…  It takes maybe 1 minute to fill each cookie cutter and place the straw, and most of a day for the whole batch to dry, and then another minute or so to put the ribbon in each.  Also, you would need a ton of cookie cutters or do a lot of batches, as they need to dry inside the cookie cutter.  

But if you have some time, I’d go for it!  

Oh yeah and as sheepandbear said, they’re fairly fragile.  Probably a nice round shape like a heart would be better than some of my snowflakes and santa clauses…

There is the link for it EXCEPT it doesnt *look* nearly as good as the photos you posted. This recipe doesnt have bird seed in but I always add about a cup or two anyways in addition to everything else. It kind of actually looks like yellowish barf in those photos, but looks better with seed added in… but still nothing really like what you posted. The birds do go CRAZY for it though… so maybe if its not the look you want then you could try it another time for fun or something 🙂 lol

 Edit: I use a tub of lard instead of the suet or fat or whatever. Works just as well and doesnt smell!

when I saw the title I was expecting little bird house type feeders. I like this much better. Little effort required on the  part of the guest. The only down side would be if you have a bunch of people that are flying they may not want to deal with them on the plane. But I think they’e cute.
