DIY: Wedding Favor Bags


Our lovely friends, Anne and Gena, spent Valentine's Day baking and crafting together. Then they took a long bike ride around town to deliver the goodness. [insert a chorus of "aww..."]

Matt and I happened to be the lucky recipients of their creativity and generosity. We received two delicious, heart-shaped brownies in a beautiful bag on our doorstep.

Inspired by Twig & Thistle, they brilliantly took regular ol' brown paper lunch bags, chopped off the bottom (to make them easier to go through the printer), found a design on the internet, printed, and sewed a quick seam to close the bottom. Voila! They reported a few paper jams but nothing too serious.

They might do something similar for favors at their April wedding (I'm counting down the days until their art gallery shindig!).

Getting a rubber stamp made is another way to do this. Rubber stamps are very reasonably priced and no printer jamming either!

This is brilliant, and would also travel well (sans the sweets) to a destination wedding too. Kudos!
