DIY - CREPE + LACE FAVOR CRACKERS
Happy Friday Guys.....I'm so excited about our feature today.....the beautiful and oh-so-talented Olivia Kanaley of A Field Journal is stopping by with the cutest DIY to share with us....Crepe +Lace Favor Crackers.....this is the perfect DIY for those of you that are having "favors" at your wedding.....a fun and inexpensive project to share with your friends and one that your guests will love.....let's check out all the "how to's" from Olivia....Enjoy!


Supplies:

Cardboard tube about 4-5 inches long (paper towel rolls and wrapping paper tubes are good sources)
Lace fabric
Crepe Paper
Scissors
Double stick tape
Very sturdy thread or twine

Optional: For added interest we added star shaped sequins (found at fabric stores) and stars punched from gold paper



Instructions:

1. Begin by cutting lace fabric and crepe paper into rectangles. The shortest side of the rectangle should be long enough to wrap around the tube - usually about 6-7 inches. The longest side should be the length of the cardboard tube plus an additional 6-8 inches. Once you've determined your dimensions write them down so all your favors will be uniform.

2. Wrap crepe paper and lace fabric around tube so that the lace fabric faces outward as shown. Secure with double stick tape. Then tie one end with twine. Fill with candy or other favor item and tie remaining edge closed.

3. Optional: Add stars or other adornments to all or a few of the favor crackers.





Now how cute is this.....Thanks SO much Livy for stopping by today....guys, head over to  A Field Journal  to see more of Olivia's gorgeous projects and we'll have more fun DIY's coming to the cafe soon....I PROMISE!!.....xoxoxo
