Wedding Favors in Boxes




  • Boxes
  • Treats
  • Ribbons
  • Other decorations


  1. Step 1

    Start with plain, inexpensive boxes, and fill them with anything you like: a souvenir from the city you are marrying in; a scented soap; or a few scrumptious cookies, chocolates, or other sweets. And be sure to consider how best to display the finished favors. You might arrange them in rows on a large table by the door, pile them in bowls for centerpieces, or set them at each guest's place -- perhaps even having them serve double duty as place cards.

  2. Step 2

    A paper ribbon printed with poetry binds a stack of boxes.

  3. Step 3


    A blue ribbon threaded through the lid and sides and secured with knots creates a handle for this box.

  4. Step 4


    This package is sealed with a personalized label made using a rubber stamp.

  5. Step 5


    A copper-cord tie is finished with a monogrammed wax seal.

  6. Step 6


    Buttons make charming closures: Punch holes in the box's lid for the button, slip wire through, and fasten on the underside; tie a ribbon to the button's base, loop it around the box, and wrap to secure.

  7. Step 7


    The message on this lilac scroll was calligraphed, then photocopied onto the paper.

    Do you sell these favor boxes to complete these projects? If so, where?

    I bought a stamper from waxseals and copied this idea almost exactly.
    Not being a crafty person this was so easy to do.
    We used their wax in a glue gun and even made the seals look sloppy and with a few splatters. This was a big hit!
