Hi! I’m Kristin from I Do Wedding Essentials in downtown Leesburg, Virginia and today, we are learning how to make wedding favors. Right now, we’re going to make an expensive, well inexpensive but affordable favor that’s not candy. A lot of times you can really want something that’s going to last day just can keep you know years later after the wedding. People often think about in graving things. You just really have to remember that who is really going on the key chain with your wedding date on it, and also if it’s anything that something that you’re going to keep, it’s going to be more expensive. So all the times I recommend something like this, it’s a little wind stopper. This one runs for 298 so it’s really pretty affordable and you don’t need to give this to every person. It’s easily something you can give per couple, and people don’t mind that they can use this.
These are lot of different ones you can get down on winter-themed. You can get hearts, you can get beach-themed. So it’s so really great alternative that’s affordable but it’s something that last for years.
So right now, we’re going to use a little clear favor box. These are on about a dollar of piece, of course because it’s caddy.
Wedding paper box is a little more expensive but it works really well with this one shoppers.
So first, I'm going to do is take some chips and some chip snow that I got on the craft store and I'm going to put just a little bit in the bottom of the box. This stuff is super messy. Definitely I want to do this somewhere that’s not going to make too much for mess.
And I'm just going to drop the ones separated in. and then I'm going to top it off maybe you just with a little bit. So it’s really just a cute little favor. And then we’ll close it in this one kind of hooks around the top, if we can give it too. These little boxes are great because you can put anything in it. Kindly relates in the wedding. If you did a beach-themed wedding, you could do a one star per wood. Show on top and then put it, seeing the net so it’s really cute for lots of different themes. And then, you really don’t need to put anything on top of this but we’re just going to tie low ribbon. This will be a good place to use. A personalized ribbon too but that of course will probably increase the favor cost in at least 0.50 cents per favor, maybe even closer to 75 cents.
Your personalized ribbon is just going to come like this. So you also kindly need to think about what you’re going to do higher and higher bow. It’s going to have a rim on one side and then the day on the other hand and is usually about 14 inches, so think about what re you going to do with it because in might not fit right with the bow on the box like this. I'm just going to chip little one and this is what we have with our finished product.
So I've just made an easily affordable favor for couple’s very expensive favor per person but something that would last.
And next, we’re going to make a more extensive favor with candy.
