A few years ago I had a friend planning her wedding on a tight budget. Because they were having a backyard wedding, they had to rent everything from tables and chairs to silverware and drinking glasses. When we were discussing the prices I started thinking….if she had to give a wedding favor, why not give a wine glass? I could make a cute little tag for them, and then everyone could take them home. The Dollar Tree has nice wine glasses for $1, which is what she wanted to spend on each favor anyway (Seriously, check out the wine glasses there, even if it’s not for a favor!).
She had to stop at a few Dollar Tree’s to get the number she needed, in the same glass. I got to work on the tags.
I enlisted the help of my brilliant cousin Michelle, who comes up with poems and cute sayings off the top of her head. She wrote the little poem out and designed it for me. I cut them out in circles, and glued each circle to turquoise cardstock (her colors were yellow & turquoise). Because the original tag had yellow in it, I remade them without the yellow so anyone could use them for their wedding. You can find the tags without room for a date here: No-Date. If you’d like to add your own date and names, you can use this PDF and just add your own information: Room-for-Date.I used a scalloped scissors to cut each one, and then used yellow ribbon ($.50 a roll at Michael’s) to tie each one to the wine glass. As painfully tedious as the cutting was, they turned out so cute. My friend got so many compliments on the favors, and people seemed to be happy to finally get something other than Hershey kisses!
