Alrighty! I am back in the blogging mode (I think), as I have tons of fun stuff to share both wedding and not wedding related. While I’m waiting to receive our official photos (this week, yipee!!!!), I wanted to share a DIY or two. I’m not kidding when I say we did everything ourselves for our wedding. And I am so glad we did. Everything turned out perfect, exactly our style.
I had a few different ideas for favors, but my sister and I came up with this great idea to use the many bags of coffee she has been able to accumulate from her job (helloooo Starbucks!). Each guest was able to take home a cute little bag of yummy Starbucks coffee, and oh, it smelled SO GOOD! You can do these easy favors for many other kinds of gatherings, too, and customize to your liking of course.
The VERY few things you’ll need:
I happend to find the cutest little coffee mug stamp among my Mom’s stamp collection, it was PERFECT for this. Fee free to use any decorative stamps, or none at all. Here’s some adorable little stamps that would be perfect. I also had to use a brown Sharpie to create the “+” sign and the hearts in between our wedding date.
After all of your stamping is done, fill each bag with coffee using some kind of funnel (I made a ghetto funnel out of paper so coffee beans could fit through easily). We used one cup ber bag.
And last of all, tie your baggies so you don’t lose the coffee (because that would just be sad!). So,voila, your favor bags are done! They shouldn’t take very long and they are oh so cute 🙂
Oh and the best part, I only spent about 20 bucks to create 75 favor bags since all I had to buy were the muslin bags and the stamp pad. Score!
