...a little favor

I love favors! You know, those little treats that you bestow upon your guests to thank them for attending your celebration, no matter how large or small it was. A favor can be anything from a single piece of candy wrapped with decorative paper and adorned with a snippet of ribbon, to a whole bag of either homemade goodies or other favorite treats with a cute paper topper.

This adorable little matchbook favor makes the perfect treat for a bridal shower or wedding. You can whip up a whole bunch of them in no time at all, cheap! They look great when they are placed in a coordinating basket or bucket, ready to snatched up and enjoyed by your guests. This one has a wedding theme but they can easily be customized to match the color or theme of any event and hold your choice of wrapped candy. I used Life Savers inside mine.  All supplies, except for the candy of course, and the punches are from A Muse Studio.

Here's a little hint: staple through the wrapper to secure the candy inside.

Birthdays, graduations, showers, weddings and many other family gatherings will take place during these summer months. Favors are an easy way for you to add a personal touch and will make your guests feel appreciated. They can be any small treat, the possibilities are endless! Just use your imagination and then get a little crafty and personalize them with a bit of paper and ink. Most of all, have fun and celebrate!
