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

Thursday 1 March 2012

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.
