DIY Wedding Favors
http://designcorral.com/blog/2014/04/26/easy-diy-wedding-favor-boxes-with-belly-bands/
These DIY wedding favors are easy and make great a lovely and gracious way to thank your guests for attending your wedding or party. Favors can take many forms but one of the most popular involves a sweet treat. The treat can be almost anything — a simple selection of truffles, a favorite candy of the bride and groom, a local specialty or even the old standby — Jordan almonds. Regardless of what treat you decide to share with your guests, we have created a cute printable that can be used with these simple and inexpensive boxes to create the downright cutest favor packaging, complete with belly bands. The lovely calligraphy style font used on this printable is called Asterism, by the amazing typographical artist Molly Jacques — if you need it for your other DIY wedding projects, you can buy it at Great Lakes Lettering.

This is what the finished favor boxes looks like. They are 2.5 square inch boxes that are about 1 inch deep — they hold up to 4 truffles. We designed a belly band for the outside of the box and a wrapper for the inside of the box.

This the belly band for the outside of the boxes. Just download this printable, print it out on text weight paper and trim out the bands.

This is the wrapper for the inside of the box. Just download this printable, print it out on text weight paper and trim out the wrappers.

I used an ex-acto knife to trim out the printables, but a paper cutter or scissors will work well too.

Here are the boxes. They are simple and inexpensive and very easy to assemble.

Once I had the boxes assembled, I laid the wrapper in the box (design face down) and put three truffles in each box, then I simply folded the wrapper to cover the truffles making sure the “and lasts forever” is what you would see when the box is open.

After closing all the boxes, take the outside belly and and center the “Love is Sweet” over the top of the box — then fold down the sides and tape the band together on the bottom of the box.

Super cute, easy and affordable wedding favors. Enjoy!

These miniature matchboxes are adorable. If you would like to make your own lovely wedding favors or shower favors, I can show you how. Imagine making an evening of this fun craft with one or two of your friends as you have your favorite TV show on in the background. Have some pretty papers, adhesives and ephemera, all to match the colors or flowers of your wedding. What a nice evening, then? What a lovely favor for your guests. Feel free to ask me any questions. You can pose any questions you may have, I’ll get back to you pretty quickly! Feel free to visit my website too.
