Printable crafts were made for the creation of pretty favor containers. Favors can be customized with carefully chosen graphics and personalized for each recipient.
A Favor is a small token of appreciation. A guest can give a favor to a hostess for having been invited for dinner. Or the hostess can give guests a small favor, usually by putting it at each place setting. The most famous favors are of course those given to wedding guests by the bridal couple. And then there are the "loot bags" of children's parties.
Many packaging templates are very quick to assemble and I would reccommend them for favors – especially if many have to be made for an event. Single favors can have special packaging that take more of your time.
A cone printed out as a complete template on paper or cardstock can be filled with candy, chocolates, almonds or wrapped sweets. The items can first be wrapped in a tissue paper cone before inserting that into the printed cone. Either put the cone on a plate at each place setting, or attach a handle and hang it from a chair. Cones are also great on Xmas trees and easter branches.
A small shopping-type bag is another perfect container, as it can be filled with anything from chocolates to charm bracelets. Either seal it with a sticker, or add handles from ribbon or paper strip. Add a tag with a message.
Pillow packets are easy to construct and snap into a puff pillow that can contain a hankey, candy, votive candles, soap and so on. As a hostess you can place one at each place setting.
A little box is trickier to construct, but iturns even a single chocolate truffle nestled in tissue paper into a glamorous presentation.
Then there are flat envelope-sized packets that can be filled with cocoa, coffee, small sweets, seeds, bath salts or a single flat cookie. (Put anything that can make grease spots in food safe plastic packets first.)
Smaller envelope packets can contain a teabag or coffee pod of a special variety.
The easiest favor for children's parties is a goodie bag with a printed topper stapled to it. The topper is easy to personalize, print and cut. No glue needed.
The cost of speciality packaging in the stores is astounding and can cost more than the contents! Favor packaging that you print yourself cost a fraction of store-bought ones.
With your own printable favors you can customize and personalize to your heart's content. Printable crafts simply enhance whatever the contents of the favor is.
