We may be told to never judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to wedding favour bags, that etiquette goes out the window.
Unleash your inner DIY spirit with this easy yet beautiful tutorial.
Half the battle when it comes to wedding favours isn’t in choosing them, but in presenting them to your guests. Take the opportunity to extend your theme to your favour bags or boxes. You don’t have to blow your budget or be a DIY goddess to achieve these beautiful favour bags. Follow our steps to create five beautiful wedding favour bags.
Vintage Burlap Wedding Favour Bags
A thick band of burlap is softened with a turquoise ribbon for a bygone look perfect for a vintage themed wedding. Use personalised cards as a keepsake of your special day and seal the bag with a matching sticker.
The sweet hand-drawn heart details add a whimsical touch.
Step 1: Cut your burlap to size. We cut our roll in half to achieve the width shown. Cut your burlap to 22 centimeters long. Wrap the burlap around the bag so that it slightly overlaps in the back and glue down.
Step 2: Cut the satin ribbon to be twice as long as the burlap, but you could go longer and just trim afterwards. Wrap the ribbon around the burlap and tie into a double knot.
Step 3: Punch a hole into the rectangular tag and thread through the ribbon. Tie the ribbon in a bow to secure the tag in place.
Step 4: Fill the bag with your chosen favours and fold over the top of the bag. Fasten closed with the sticker.
Classically Minimal DIY Favour Bags
Minimal pewter and snow white detailing adds an air of elegance to these favour bags. Perfectly suited to a minimalist wedding theme, lined up in rows, the stark white bags with the dark ribbons would be striking.
Baker’s twine and lace come together in a pretty shabby chic favour bag.
Step 1: Cut the lace to 22 centimeters long. Wrap around the bag and glue in the back. Wrap the twine around the bag over top of the lace several times before tying in a loose bow. Cut any excess twine.
Step 2: Attach the tag to the bag and hold in place with the mini clip.
Elegant Ruffles DIY Favour Bags
Soft ruffled fabric clasped with a vintage clothespin provides a simple and pretty adornment for your favours. The vintage feel of this design is easy to achieve and would look stunning tabletop at a blush and sage coloured reception or as part of a vintage themed wedding.
