Complete Project: Tulle Wedding Guest Favors, skill level 2

Looking for an easy, inexpensive wedding or bridal shower guest favor?  This tulle wedding guest favor project combines pretty packaging with practicality - Easy to assemble, transport and hand out. Excellent for bridal shower and wedding guest favors or thank you gifts.  The biggest question of this project is what you'll choose to fill them with!

You will need: 
Tulle Circles* or Squares
, approx. 8"X8" or 10" diameter depending on contents
Ribbon (curling, thin satin, raffia, or personalized ribbon) - approx 18" long pieces
The Gift Contents (soaps, candies, wrapped chocolates, seeds, faith stones*, candles, ornaments, personalized magnets, rubber duckies or other fun toys, lottery tickets, coffee mugs, sea shells, travel sized lotions, wine charms*, cookie cutters*, wine stoppers*, jam jars*, kitchen gadgets*, coffee & tea, etc.)

Step 1:  Make one completed sample favor from start to finish.  This way, if any size adjustments of any kind need to be made, you haven't cut up all your tulle & ribbon yet! Decide how you will arrange the contents (especially if you put more than one item inside). Make your tulle shapes larger if you don't have at least 2.5" extra above your contents. You can purchase pre-cut tulle circles at craft & fabric stores with bridal sections.

Step 2:  Cut tulle into squares or circle shapes.  Make one, and then use it as your template.  Hint - For perfect circles, find a bowl with the proper circumference, turn it upside down on your tulle, and lightly trace around it with a pencil.  Hint - Use "pinking shears" or other fancy scissors for interesting cut edges.

Step 3:  Set up your assembly line!  Stack tulle shapes into a pile, cut ribbon into 18" lengths, organize your contents. 

Step 4:  Place contents in the center of the tulle.  Pull/gather all sides up and secure with ribbon.  Tie a knot, then finish like you'd tie a shoe. 

Step 5:  Revel in your creativity!  Bring them to the reception and pass them out!  E-mail NWweddingplace.com and let us know how your project went.  We may post your feedback here, with your permission.
