Favour Ideas

August, 3rd 2009


Organza Bag Favours You will need:
  • Organza Bag
  • Rosebud Heart Embellishment
  • Mini Glue Dots

Peel the backing off two or three Mini Glue dots and stick to the back of the Rosebud Heart Embellishment. Attach to the organza bag, fill with your choice of confectionery or gift and pull the drawstrings to close. This is a quick and easy favour that can be made in a variety of colour combinations to suit your scheme.

 Thistle Pillow

 You will need:
  • Favour Box - Gold Ribbed Pillow
  • 3mm Cream Double Sided Satin Ribbon, allow 20cm per favour
  • Mini Glue Dots

Assemble the favour box folding along the ready scored lines. Take one leaf and two flower heads from the bunch of thistles and arrange them so the leaf is behind the flowers. Tie the three stems together with a length of ribbon in a single knot, tie the loose ends of ribbon into a bow then trim the ends at an angle so they don't fray. Trim the stems of the thistles to size; if your scissors aren't able to cut through the wire of the stem, nail clippers make great wire cutters. Place two mini glue dots on the back of the leaf and one behind the bow to stick to the pillow box.

This favour can be made with any of the Wedding Crafter's flowers and with any colour ribbon.

 Pretty in Pink

 You will need:
  • Favour Box - White cube with lid
  • 10mm Pink Organza Ribbon, allow 80cm per favour
  • Wired flower with crystal and sequins
  • Mini Glue Dots

Assemble the favour box and lid folding along the scored lines. Cut two pieces of ribbon approximately 25cm long and two pieces 15cm long. Take the lid of the box and stick a mini glue dot on the inside wall of the lid at the centre. Attach one end of a 15cm length of ribbon then wrap it round he outside of the lid. Attach it in the same way to the inside of the box of the other side with a glue dot. Do the same at right angles. Your lid will now look like a traditionally wrapped parcel.

Attach the longer lengths of ribbon to the base of the box in the same way, placing the glue dot as far down inside the box as possible. Finally attach a Wired Flower Embellishment to the lid where the ribbons cross with a couple of Mini Glue Dots and fill as you wish.
