DIY FAVOR WRAP TIPS

Posted on April 8, 2016 at 10:10 PM

SO you decided on your favors.. great! Now, how will you wrap them?

If you are DIY’ing it, here’s a few tips:

What type of wrap you like? which will be easiest for you to do on your own or with your groom-to-be or your bridal party?

paper wrap

satin wrap

cello bags

fabric bags

boxes

 

ribbon

floral or jewel embellishments

 


Must have supplies:

tape ( for paper wrap)

fabric glue (for any embellishments)

really good scissors

clean cloth to cover table you are working on

tissue paper

 


When using paper wrap, it’s always best to make a template.. it doesn’t have to be the wrap you are using, use any paper, to get the exact size.

Measure the template and times it by how ever many favors you need to wrap, this way you will order/buy the correct amount of paper…

 

Same goes for ribbon.. wrap a sample, then disassemble it and measure how much ribbon you will need for each. Again, times it by the number of favors to get the total amount of ribbon you will need. Rolls are sold by the yard, so figure out your yardage.

 

Satin wraps are fun! you can either grab and tie in the center or knot them. Play around with it. There are so many colors to choose from, you’re sure to find one to carry out your theme colors.

I must admit… satins are my favorite!

 

Cello bags and fabric bags are a bit easier.. just remember when you see the size (i.e. 6x4) that’s the total size, so make sure your favor will fit BELOW the tie. Usually, there is and inch or so you need to deduct from the overall size. Also, always take a measuring tape/ruler to see the exact size.. it’s always easy to say “Oh, yeah, they’ll fit” only to get the actual bag and realize…nope. Buy a sample if you still can’t decide.

 

I’m not a fan of the clear plastic boxes that favors are usually packaged in, so I like to find a decorative box and throw away the clear plastic one. It adds a little expense, but makes a huge difference in presentation! Use a piece of tissue paper to line the box to make it extra special.

 

Remember, make it fun. that’s when your best work will shine. It can be very time consuming, so make sure you put aside time that’s not full of distractions. Of course, a girl’s night in with your BFFS is the good kind of distraction!

 

Congratulations & Good Luck! I’m always here if you need me!
