Envelope Favor and Place Card

A trio of envelopes encloses sweets and serves as a place card.

Tools and Materials

Hot pink, pale pink, and brown 31/2-by- 5-inch envelopes.

Envelope Favor How-To

  1. Create a template (for making many favors): Trace envelope onto paper; cut out, and make two holes using a 1/8-inch hole punch. Lay template over front envelope; mark holes with pencil.
  2. Lay front envelope over other two, staggering so tops show. Using a paper clip to hold in place, punch holes through all three envelopes.
  3. Add candies to each envelope; seal.
  4. Tie together with ribbon. Print label on a computer (use clip art for fancy designs); affix with a glue stick. You can find a wide selection of candies in both pink and brown. Of course there are myriad chocolates; and jelly beans, M and Ms, and dragees come in almost every color (food for any palette). Use all one hue, or mix the colors in flavors that go well together.
