DIY: Tea Wedding Favors

Forget about stuffing tiny boxes with fancy nuts or organza bags with miniature chocolates. Treat your wedding guests to a warm, soothing--and uncommon--edible favour. At the wedding reception, present a decorative sachet of your favourite tea blend to those sharing in your special day. Whether you go with an herbal blend or a robust black tea, this wedding favour will warm up fall and winter wedding guests in no time.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Purchase herbal, black or green tea packets that have strings and labels. Choose a flavour with a name that coordinates with the wedding ambience, such as pomegranate pizazz or merry mint.

  2. 2

    Create tea bag packets from decorative cardstock or wide wire-edge ribbon that coordinates with the wedding colours. Cut a rectangle slightly larger than twice as large as the tea bag. Fold the cardstock or ribbon in half and use glue dots to seal three sides of the packet.

  3. 3

    Slip one tea bag into each packet, leaving the string and tea bag label hanging out of the top of the packet.

  4. 4

    Use a craft punch in a festive shape, such as wedding bells, hearts or a leaf, to make new tea bag labels. Punch two of each shape from decorative scrapbook paper. Using glue dots, adhere one each of the cut outs to the front and to the back of each tea bag label.

  5. 5

    Stick monogrammed stickers on the front and back of each new tea bag label. Use the initial of the couple's shared last name, since guests won't see the tea favour until the bride and groom are officially married.

  6. 6

    Type a festive message on self-adhesive, decorative address labels and adhere them to the front of the tea wedding favour packet. Use a message such as "Love is brewing! Please enjoy a cup of merry mint tea." or "Thank you for sharing our "tea"riffic day!"

Tips and warnings

  • Instead of making packets for the tea bags, save time by trimming a few inches off the height of miniature cello bags from a craft store.
