For couple’s with a sweet tooth, these DIY his and her favorite candy wedding favors are the perfect addition to their wedding reception. When you think of wedding favors, you probably think about some cheesy gift with the couple’s name and wedding date. Something that might be meaningful to the people getting married, but not as meaningful to those attending the wedding. Candy on the other hand is something that can be enjoyed by just about everyone.
In this post, we’ll show you how to make candy wedding favors using a Cricut. You can create a treat bag for each partner’s favorite candy, plus a shared favorite candy favor bag.
- Open Cricut Design Space and create a three-inch circle.
- Add the text and any design elements you want on your sticker. Make sure that the text and design fit within the circle you created.
- Change the operation type to print then cut for the circle, text, and design elements.
- Select all layers and then flatten.
- Repeat this process for any additional stickers. For this project, I am creating four favorite treat stickers. One for the bride, groom, a combined favorite treat, and a favorite treat for the couple's fur baby, Odie.
- Duplicate the sticker designs so that you have the number of stickers you plan to make for each treat bag.
- Select make it and follow the prompts in design space to print and cut out the wedding favor stickers.
- Apply the stickers to the plastic treat bags and then fill the bags with the treats!
