Are you a chocolate-loving bride? Looking for some inexpensive DIY favors that also act as place cards? This project does both. Smarty Had A Party posted this incredible idea for the DIY bride who wants her DIY projects to be EASY and tasteful. Some DIY projects look, well, embarrassing! No bride wants to waste her time or money on a project like that. This awesome project combines the best type of wedding favors (chocolate, of course) with a simple placecard. Make a simple circle design on your computer and cut it out using a large circle punch (check craft store sales or EBay for good deals, don't forget to look for coupons) to punch out circles (about 15/page (the circles should be about 1 1/2 – 2 inches in diameter). Using some double stick tape, put the circle on the toothpick (buying high quality toothpicks will make your job much easier and the cost is minimal!)
Shop for the chocolates on sale after holidays or check your local warehouse store or commissary. Not the best thing to buy online since chocolate may melt during shipping especially during the summer. Also chocolates are not the best favor for a summer wedding, again, melting becomes a problem. Estimates for the total costs: as low as 50 cents/favor. And your place cards are done as well. The DIY bride strikes again!
