"Wedding Favors"


My neighbors niece is getting married in August and wants some kind of hand made favor to put on the tables for the guests to take home. So Lupe (my fabulous neighbor) and I made a bunch of samples for her to pick from. Her colors are red, black, and white. We are going to make the peppermint sammiches for sure and we were trying to talk her into the bag toppers but she decided on the wrapped Hershey bars. However, she didn't care for the ones we came up with. She wants the wrapper to be embossed with the divine swirl cuttlebug embossing folder and she isn't too crazy about the roses. So we are going to do the black and red embossed Hershey bar wrappers and put a sheer ribbon around them and add a thank you tag and see if she likes those. I will post a picture of that when we are done with the samples. We are looking at about 200 of them to make. Whew. Thanks for looking and you all have a great day!

Rochelle, I think these are beautiful. I am positive she will enjoy whatever you make;)

I sent an email with a link to a project I made with your card keeper just curious to see what you think.

Ooh, I can't wait to the final outcome! I'm sure she will love them! Wish I was there to help you make them, but Arkansas is not quite close enough, hehe!

Rochelle: I LOVE these you did already. Bride's can be very picky though, so I am sure the others will be good too. I LOVE that roses in winter set!

How funny...I am taking a break from making 200 treat bags for a bride friend myself! For her I printed a calligraphy "E"(first letter of her new last name) on my computer, circle punched it, and used the scallop punch to make a medallion...Could you do something like that on the candy bar instead of the roses?

Very elegant wedding favors. How nice of you to help Lupe make them for her niece.

Personally, I think edible favors are nice because they get consumed ;)
