We think you'll agree that nothing says, "let's celebrate" like a little bit of bubbly. While you could just pop open a bottle of champagne, why not take a more creative route? To make these charming sparkling wine wedding favors, tuck single servings of bubbly inside kraft-paper covers. Dress them up with brightly colored straws for easy sipping, attached with pieces of festive gold tape. Our simple DIY project makes the perfect treat to share with your bridesmaids while you all get ready for the big day. Alternatively, you can offer them as favors or serve them at the after party. We'll drink to that.

  1. Download our brown-bag template.

  4. Use scissors to cut along black trim lines.
  5. Apply adhesive to the glue line parallel to the 'Cheers' text.
  6. Make ¼-inch cuts into the creases at the base of the template, creating four flaps.
  7. Fold each flap inward and apply adhesive along glue lines.
  8. Pinch the base of the sleeve firmly together until sealed.
  9. Place the mini bottles in the bags and attach straws.
