Perfect wedding party favours

15 May 2016

Wedding season is upon us. And we couldn’t be happier about it! Since party favours are a great way to add to the festivities, we’ve put together a little kit to take yours to the next level (on the cheap, no less).

How to make your party favour bag:
1. Cut a 40 cm x 30 cm rectangle from your paper bag.
2. Fold it in half to create a 20 cm x 30 cm rectangle.
3. Make a fold 5 cm from the bottom.
4. Open up that fold and fold the sides flat, creating a diamond shape.
5. Now take the bottom tip, folding it to the middle of the diamond. Do the same with the top tip.
6. Tape the bottom together.
7. All done!
 

Don’t have your own moustache? Want a poutier kisser? Just draw them out on carboard, cut them out,  and thread a straw through for photo booth-ready essentials.

Quite frankly, getting raw rice hurled at your face doesn’t feel great. Whip out your trusty hole puncher and start punching your way to as much (light-as-a-feather) confetti as possible. Just add some sparklers for some extra magic.
