Wedding Favors – 3 Ways Using Cricut Pens

Cricut pens make it so easy to create personalized favors for any occasion – like a summer wedding! Glitter gel pens add a bit of subtle shimmer to make these extra special.  Choose between a cookie bag, candy box, or fabric sachet, or make all three!

Cookie Bag

All you need for these cookie bags is freezer paper, tape runner or iron, and a sticker or decorative seal.  The coated side of the freezer paper lines the inside of the bag and keeps oil from the cookie from penetrating to the outside of the bag.

The bag uses a basic envelope pattern available in Cricut Design Space and ordinary freezer paper from the grocery store.  Set the machine to draw on the paper (non-shiny) side of the freezer paper and cut out.  Fold the envelope on the score lines to assemble the bag.  You can opt to iron the folded tabs to the body of the bag to secure the sides (the freezer paper will stick to itself when heated with the iron) or you can secure the sides with double stick tape.  Insert your cookie and seal the bag with a decorative sticker.

Candy Box

Choose from a wide variety of designs in Cricut Design Space to create any size box to hold a treat for your lucky guests.  All you need is cardstock, a bit of adhesive, and any other embellishments to suit your event.  You can create a design with a drawing on the sides of your box or pen an all over design, or anything in between.  The machine makes quick work of scoring and cutting the box, leaving you only to fold on the score lines and complete the assembly.  Insert your candy and secure the box using a glue dot or other adhesive.  Add a paper flower on top or any other embellishments.

Sachet Bag

Last, but not least, the sachet bag favor requires a small drawstring bag (handmade or purchased), a plain fabric for the tag, and double-sided paper-backed fusible webbing. Iron your tag fabric to the fusible webbing following the manufacturer’s instructions. Use your Cricut to draw on the fabric and cut out the tags.  Remove the paper backing from the cut tags and iron the tags onto the drawstring bags following the manufacturer’s instructions. Fill the bags with scented lavender, mints, or whatever (!) and gift to your guests to enjoy.
