DIY favor bag

We saw another blogger talking about creating your own favor bags. So we thought we would give it a try. And, I think they turned out pretty cute. And, they are super cost effective for the bride on a budget. They might be a little big for favors, but here are some other ways you could use these fun personalized bags:

Guest hotel welcome bags

bridesmaid or groomsmen gift bags

to go bags for late night snacks
kids activity bags
The first bag has 2 different ribbons lined up on top of each other. Then we took two fun printed papers and cut them out in 2" and 1 3/4" inch squares. Then we printed a monogram letter and cut it into a 1 1/2" square. We used glue dots from our local scrapbooking store to hold it all together. The great thing about this is you can make them exactly how you want!
The next bag has a custom printed thank you note on the front and a fun decal on the back. We cut it in a 2 1/2" rectangle and cut both bottoms with scallop scissors. Then we used a ruler to get a tight fold and stuck it on the bag with glue dots.

These projects are great for a girls night with all your bridesmaids. Get a bottle of wine, pretty paper, brown bags and have FUN!

You can check out a downloadable file to make these for wedding from one of our favorite blogs: and search for DYI brown bag label.
