My wedding is very close (July 9th!) eek but I just bearly made an account here and I’m loving iTt! Reading all your nice blogs just gets me in the spirit of working on my stuff, I’m currently working on my party favors. I’m doing simple small carboard boxes and filling them with mints or chocolates. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to make cute tags for them. Or just upload pics so I can see your fabulous creations. Please let me know thanks!

We made homemade vanilla extract, and I just ordered these as stickers from Vistaprint.com. With coupons, we ordered 240 stickers for $33. They are 1.5 inches in diameter.

I am making favor labels also and have found lots of options for making them….
-If you have a Michael’s crafts they sell favor sticker labels in a few different shapes. You can download templates online to design what you want and then print them out yourself. Or of course if you have pretty handwriting you can hand label them. Unfortunately I don’t have the talent or patience for this!
-Craft punches- I’ve seen some that are big enough for favor tags or if you want stickers you could probably just print on sticker paper and punch out. I’ve seen both square and rounded shapes. (ex: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=craft+punch&hl=en&biw=1138&bih=555&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=6448144424224764352&sa=X&ei=q0KuTd_dItL0gAeU8M3yCw&ved=0CGMQ8wIwAA#
-If you want a more unique shape you can look into using a Cricut cartridge to cut out the shapes. This is what I’m going to try and attempt using a friends cricut machine. I haven’t quite figured out how to print on them yet but I think they’ll come together somehow!

@MerryMer:Thanks I really like the idea of sticker labels since it gives me the liberty of playing with the templates. I will definetly look for some tomorrow at Michaels. Thanks!

Hi bee! I did mine for a fraction of the regular cost: .05 cents per cardstock (with 1 sheet I did 20 tags); 200 jewels x $1.49; $3.00 glue; Free cartridge at my grandparents house…lol
I spent $400 for my invitations and is really frustrating because I could do it too.
