Green and Brown: Finely Wrapped Favors

Extend your palette with pretty favors in green and brown that are a delight to behold. Familiar materials -- paper bags, cardboard boxes, crepe paper, twine -- are easily made into sophisticated packaging with ribbon or decorative paper. Fill with soaps, candy, or any other little treat, and place on each plate, or group together on a favor table.

Try our ideas for what to put in your boxes:

  • Nestle soaps in a mini cardboard loaf pan by Novacart U.S.A. tied with twine. Print a tag, and tape to front.
  • Roll a candle in two pieces of crepe paper from Plum Party, and cinch ends with twine; a scallop-edged ribbon from M & J Trimming wraps the middle.
  • A box covered in wood-grain paper from New York Central Art Supply and satin ribbon from M & J Trimming is topped with hemlock cones, from Farm and Field, attached with adhesive dots.
  • Lenderink's veneer box is draped with a circle of cotton from B and J Fabrics cut 2 inches larger than the lid and held on with ribbon from the Store Across the Street.

    If you ask for old wallpaper books from places like Lowes/Shermann Williams ect chances are they'll give them to you. They throw the books away which takes up valuable landfill space. By getting these books you're recycling, saving landfill space and getting beautiful paper too.
