Favor box designing/representation help needed!?

by DIY wedding planner on September 18, 2012

My fiance and I are DIY our own favors. We are making gel candles in sqaure votives. The gel will be a chartreuse green and will most likely have some embeds as well (still looking for those).

I want to place the votives into clear favor boxes and then have them packaged with black favor wrapping. I’m not certain where to go from here though. I would like to wrap the black box in maybe some white tulle? But I had also planned to place our circle monogram sticker on the box.
Do you think I should place the sticker on the top of the inner clear box and then tie the black box with white tulle or ribbon?

My other concern is that I’d love to incorporate our honeymoon destination into the favors somehow. We’re leaving for Jamaica after the wedding, and our wedding colors are black, white, and a sort of citron green. Do you think this is wise to do? How could I do this without throwing off the wedding scheme?

I would place the sticker on the outside black wrapping, and don’t wrap it in tulle. It would be too much. It will have a much better effect not wrapped in the tulle. I might tie the box with ribbon (maybe the green) and place the sticker over the ribbon. much like this one:

For the Jamaica thing, you could add little touches of yellow in with the colors (like the black/green/yellow Jamaican flag)

for the brides bridal shower favors we had little tins with m&m’s in the wedding colors. we used really skinny black ribbon to hold the tins shut. (you have to do the x like on presents) with the bow on the front of the tin and then we put the label stickers on top to hold the ribbon in place. they came out beautifully!
