I saw a cute idea at Michaels where they took the square tin and the same ribbon you have, and rather than tying a bow, they crossed the ribbon ends over each other and used a wax seal at the intersection part.  It looked SO GOOD that I took home the paper with the picture on it!  It was in the wedding section. 

The labels posted above are from http://www.myweddinglabels.com

You could also look on etsy for someone to design some for you, if you wanted labels (which could go on one of the sides).

I want to do this same thing, but fill with tea.  ๐Ÿ™‚  Where did you get the tins?

I am actually doing something similar with tea. I got circular screw top tins from Papermart (they have awesome prices). I am designing a label to go on the top and we are putting tea bags inside. We are selecting a blend of tea we both enjoy from Teavana and bag it ourselves (they sell tea bags 100 for 4.99 at Teavana)

@msgirard: are you doing circular tea bags, too?  The only company I could find that had circular tea bags was Republic of Tea, which is the kind they have at Panera Bread – it’s yummy!  But my fiance wants to give away loose tea instead.  We can’t come to a decision.  ๐Ÿ™

If it were me, I would either do the label OR the ribbon, not both.  The sample I saw at Michaels only had the ribbon tied to the lid or the tin, not the whole tin.  And another example (I think I saw it on Elizabeth Anne Designs blog) did just labels – one for the top, and then a long rectangular one to wrap around the sides.

That is an excellent point!  You’ve helped me a great deal!  Because you see, I want to do the teabags and it’s my fiance who wants to give away loose tea.  My argument is that the non-tea drinkers won’t have an infuser so they can’t even use their favor, whereas even non-tea drinkers mught brew up a cup of tea if they had the teabags.  His reply is to also give away tea infusers.  So I will now use this as my new argument!  It doesn’t help that the wedding is in his hometown, so it’s my entire family that’s flying….

I love that idea! How many guests are you having and how many bags of M&M’s did you have to order? I thought about ordering some for our candy buffet but they looked expensive!
