Wedding Tutorials Day 4 – Favors

Hi Everyone

Today I have an idea for Wedding Favors. SO simple and easily adaptable to any theme.

Please note that the contest previously detailed here has now closed.
Winners can be seen here.

Wedding Favors

Your guests could either open these or keep them as a little memento of your day. I like to fill them with after dinner mints!

These really are one of my favorite projects to make and I have a new and simplified tutorial to share today!
  1.  Cut paper into 3” x 4” rectangles (7.5cm x 10cm)
    You can get 12 of these from one sheet of scrapbook paper
  2. Place very strong double sided adhesive tape along the two long and one short sides.
    I used JEJE Extra Sticky Tape
  3. Remove the backing from the tape
  4. Form a cylinder, joining the 2 shorter sides together with the adhesive
    Press adhesive very firmly
  5. Pinch one end of the cylinder together.
    Press adhesive firmly and fill with little treats
  6.  Pinch other end of cylinder together at right angles to form this shape.
    Use a paper crimper or scoring tool to really seal edges

    Note – the papers are from the Nantucket Collection from Pink Paislee.

    I have then cut a Pennant shape using Spellbinders, created a hole with a paper punch and tied to the favor with plain twine.

    What a cute and EASY idea! So many things say "easy" and they end up taking a TON of time or use expensive tools… this is actually easy peasy!

    You can save a lot of money on DIY wedding favors, especially if you have a wide imagination! I'm all dried up thinking about designs myself so, upon seeing yours, I got inspired. But mind you, all credit is due to you, Lowri. I want to make beautiful masterpieces like what you do here!
