"S'more" favors that you will love and a free download to get you started!

If you have been to the new Creative Studio space in the Toronto store, chances are that  you have already seen my "s'more" favor packaging ideas. I saw a similar idea with a square box on Pinterest a while ago and as soon as I saw the clear take out boxes I knew that I had to create my own version of this idea.

I stacked graham crackers, chocolate and large marshmellows in small clear take out boxes and used our new options labels, clean edge cards and assorted ribbons to decorate the containers.

I could see these favors being used at an outdoor wedding, a birthday party or beach get together at the cottage ... so it was hard for me to just create one version of this sweet treat.

Note: update February 2014 ... we no longer carry REX7 Options labels that these were created to print on. You can print these on our Sticker You blank sticker sheets . Cut out with circle paper punch or by hand with scissors.

I've also included a download for the art without the circles so you can create whatever shape of label you would like. You can download the art here. 

To decorate the first S'more favor I simply wrapped a red ribbon around the box, secured it in place with some two sided tape and then added my circle label to the front of the box.

When I was decorating this next favor I was inspired by our burlap ribbons and I thought that this favor would be perfect for an outdoor wedding or party ... can't you just see these at a reception in a barn!  I tied a variety of different coloured ribbons, twine and burlap together on the wire handle along with a gift tag.

This last S'more favor box was designed with a totally different kind of party in mind ... I was thinking about a summer birthday party at the cottage with the kids. I combined a custom label with some some funky scrapbooking papers here. I tied the papers to the wire handles using two pieces of ribbon. I have girls so I usually make things a little more "girly" when I am thinking about birthday parties but this could so easily be interpreted for a boy's party if you used a different scrapbook paper and ribbon.
