I always meant to post pictures of our wedding favors, but I think that a pregnancy and then an adorable baby got in my way. Then today, I found some of the leftovers while I was getting our wedding things together for a shadow box I’m making of our wedding day and thought I’d share.
I chose Hershey chocolate bars because you can buy them super cheap in bulk at Costco. I could make these for next to nothing, which is about what we could afford. I planned a mixed media art design with vintage pictures and various ephemera. I purchased the vintage wedding photos on Etsy. It was an instant digital download. I can’t remember the seller, but there are several sellers with vintage picture downloads.
I think the most expensive part were the flower stickers, and I got those 50% off during Hobby Lobby sales. The black pouches I ordered online from Foilman, If you need candy bar pouches, they have tons of colors, and ship fast.
Our wedding had a red/black theme. I watched for scrapbook paper sales at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby to get black and red paper and cardstock super cheap. I spent a few late nights cutting everything to size and gluing it all together.
The back I created after looking at a few online. I know it’s totally cheesy, but it’s a wedding, lol! You can easily create the barcode in PicMonkey. I printed it on large white address labels.
My favorite is this one because the vintage couple looks like us. It’s the one I’m putting it in the shadow box with our invitation and hubby’s boutonniere. I’ll post later this week after I’ve finished it up. I need some black linen like cardstock first.
Look for my newest tutorial up later this week. I have to read a couple of chapters and take a couple quizzes before I can get back to sewing this week.
