For these eye-catching favor pouches, we used bright tissue paper to create a pattern that mimics that bold beauty, then tied on a tag bearing planting instructions, and verdant ribbon to pose as leaves. At home, guests will peel back the petals to reveal a dormant dahlia bulb brimming with potential and just waiting to take root.
Stylishly wrapped chocolate favors are perfect for your big day. To make the packaging, cut scrapbooking paper into a 1 1/2-inch-by-6-inch strips. At the center of each, cut out a half heart (see our template) using a craft knife. Then, wrap around a stack of three chocolate tasting squares, secure with double-sided tape, and fold back the heart.
At traditional Greek weddings, dragees are handed out in odd-numbered amounts. The indivisibility of the numbers shows the newlyweds will be partners for life. For a chic sweet, fill 3 1/2-inch boxes with an odd number of different dragees. Use our template to make the box lining that separates the dragees into 3 different compartments.
Given as a favor, chocolate is always a big hit, and letting your guests assemble their own boxes sweetens the deal. Create a buffet of offerings -- we used milk, white, and dark chocolates -- and label each with a printed tag. Small boxes, secured with elastic bands, are casually stacked alongside the treats. Use our template to create the box dividers that allow guests to separate their picks.
Sure, matchbooks have become a go-to wedding favor, but there's more to these clever versions than meets the eye. Give away a surprising something to remember in the form of a cheery, charming pack of forget-me-not seeds. The best part: Long after the big day, guests will watch the dainty blossoms -- and the memories -- spring to life.
