Bridal Shower Party Favors

This weekend I was lucky enough to have my mom Hope Yoder and sister Hannah Yoder who threw me a tea party inspired bridal shower! Today I am going to show you how I made my party favors that were a big hit! Check out the burlap sign that I made in a previous video to use with the party favors as well!

It all started with the idea to plant little cacti and succulents in all of my old coffee mugs and teacups that I wasn't using. I'm moving to a different state at the end of the year, and unfortunately I won't be able to take all of my mugs with me so I decided to repurpose them into party favors.

I used the Hope Yoder library in the CraftNCut Software to cut out these scalloped tags. I cut them out on the ScanNCut with heavy brown card-stock. The card-stock was a little tricky to work with because it kept sliding off the mat because it was so heavy and stiff, so I used my trust roll of RNK Embroidery Perfection Tape to hold the card-stock in place. The ScanNCut will actually scan the tape and card-stock when you load your mat in to scan it so you can see where to place the design. And don't worry if you accidentally cut through the tape; it will still cut through the card-stock and tape and you will be able to peel the tape off later.

After my tags were cut out, I went ahead and stamped on my design to the front and back. I stamped our wedding logo on the front and added a heart with our wedding date on the back of the tag. After stamping, I grabbed a hole punch and punched a hole on the top of the tag about 1/4" away from the top of the tag. You will want to use twine, embroidery floss, or some type of yarn to  attach the tag to the handle of the mugs.

It took me about two hours to assemble all the mugs and pot the plants in each one, but it was so worth it! I'm so happy with how this turned out, and all the guests loved that each gift was unique. They got to choose which mug they wanted. I really had fun creating these party favors!
