Treasure Chest Favor Ideas
One of my favorite do-it-yourself favor box choices for weddings are treasure chests. You can embellish these simple boxes with ribbon, mini seashells, hearts or flowers, and personalized stickers or hang tags to create a one-of-a-kind favor for your wedding guests.
This beach treasure chest was created using an aqua blue favor box, white "From The Happy Couple" ribbon, and starfish shaped stickers that are imprinted with the bride and groom's names along with the wedding date. All of these items can be purchased at Wedding Favors Unlimited.
I suggest filling the boxes with seashell-shaped chocolates nestled on a bed of paper shred (as shown in the photo) or your favorite candies such as M & M's in an aqua and white color scheme.
Using the same aqua blue treasure chests, you can create an elegant favor that would be great for a "Something Blue" wedding theme or chocolate and aqua colored wedding. To create the look shown in the photo, you print out your favorite quote on a clear vellum strip and wrap it around the base of the treasure chest. Then you wrap the white satin ribbon tying a bow around the chest in the other direction. Use hot glue to add a crystal heart confetti to the center of the ribbon bow and voila, you've got beautiful wedding favors for your guests.
