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.
