EZ DIY Projects {Favors & Menus}

It’s time for some DIY projects perfect for your next dinner party, shower, or luncheon.
A classy way to display your menu:  These menu “cards” are actually printed on fabric!  With a few simple supplies and light colored fabric, you can add a stunning detail to your place settings.
What I really love about this idea is once you master the steps, you can apply them to so many different uses – print on fabric bunting, napkins, table runners or place mats, etc.  Find the complete tutorial here at 100 Layer Cake.

Pretty candy poppers: Doesn’t everyone have empty tissue paper rolls lying around?  If not, start saving them so you can put together this project by Posh Paperie for Style Me Pretty.  This tutorial shows you how to wrap & roll pretty paper tubes just right for holding candy for an elegant favor for guests.  You could also write each guests name on the tag and use as place cards.
Words of wisdom:  Are you a board game junkie, or just love inspirational words?  Then this sweet project is perfect for you.  Word magnets presented in a cute tin box make a lovely favor.  Tailor your word selection to the event – ‘love’ for a bridal shower, ‘baby’ for a baby shower, or more generic terms like ‘hope’ or ‘wish’ for other events.  Find this easy how-to on Project Wedding.
Time to wrap it up: Finally, what could be easier than wrapping existing candies in color coordinated paper?  You’ve seen me do it here with Duet Truffles, and below Creative Hostess shows you a little step-by-step.  I really love her use of the neutral craft paper for wrapping.
