S’more LOVE Wedding Favors

Meg Perotti always seems to photograph the most creative couples, and CJ & Dustin are no exception. We will be showcasing their gorgeous DIY wedding tomorrow but first I had to show you their amazing handmade S’mores favors.

CJ was kind enough to share with us a tutorial for creating her lovely project, which is cost-effective and was a huge hit for their guests!

The couple was on a modest budget, but had lots of ingenuity and plenty of time.  They wanted their wedding favors to be:

  • Something sweet because they are both sugar addicts
  • Something chocolate because it is their most favorite treat
  • Something interactive for their guests

CJ says:

“The actual ingredients are of minimal cost, so we were able to devote additional money towards packaging, which really made each favor very special.  They are little surprises within a surprise!”

You will need:

  • Large marshmellows
  • Semi-sweet chocolate wafers, approximately 20 wafers per guest
  • Graham cracker squares, four squares per guest
  • Kraft boxes (you can source from a variety of places, including Nashville Wraps, Papermart, and Garnish)
  • Kraft tissue paper (Papermart or Garnish)
  • Muslin bags (Papermart)
  • Tealight candle
  • High clarity food-grade cellophane bags in three sizes (Nashville Wraps or Garnish)
  • Brown/white and Red/white bakers twine (Garnish or We Sell Coffee)
  • 4″ or 6″ bamboo skewers
  • Kraft label paper
  • Laser-cut wooden discs with wedding date (Etsy: Roberto Sand)
  • Custom rubber stamps – S’more LOVE and wedding logo (Impress Rubber Stamps, CJ and Dustin’s wedding logo stamp was designed by Anna Bond at Rifle Design)
  • Scissors, printer, pigment stamping ink, paper cutter

Stamp each muslin bag with “S’more LOVE” image.  Let ink dry overnight.

Place 20 chocolate wafers into a larger cellophane bag.  Tie with baker’s twine.

Break graham cracker rectangles in half.  Put four squares into a larger cellophane bag and tie with baker’s twine.  {Note: If you are packaging more than a week in advance, CJ suggests ordering a thicker-grade cellophane bag and using a heat-sealer to help block moisture from the crackers}

To assemble, arrange 2 kraft tissue paper sheets at bottom of box.  Add marshmellows in muslin bag, chocolate wafers, and graham crackers.  Include a box of matches if you like.  Tie each box with bakers twine and attach wooden disk.  Voila!

    Hello, I came across these smores favors, and I must say oh so cute! I am getting married in Yosemite Valley in June, and this is perfect for my wedding favors, I was wondering what size kraft box did the bride use? I was planning on using a 7x 3 3/8 x 2. hers look bigger, I searched through her suggested websites for boxes they do not have anything bigger. Thanks,

    From the Bride: I purchased the kraft boxes online from Nashville Wraps. Item #BXNATSM “Natural Stackable Meal Boxes”

    Hi,

    I love your “S’more Love” favours. I really want to do this for my wedding in a couple weeks. The only problem is that my reception is outdoors. So if the favours are sitting on the guests plates outside in July I fear that it might become a gooey melted mess. Any suggestions?

  5. Ami Elizabeth writes...

    hi nadine! what about, instead of having them at each place setting, having them on a table somewhere as guests leave, kept in air conditioning until the last moment?

  6. Mickey writes...

    What size are the muslin bags, I’m thinking of doing these as my wedding favors?

  7. anna writes...

    I love this idea! Do you know what size and type of cellophane bags they used? I would love to use this idea!!

  8. We at Full Moon Farm have never hidden our love of s’mores. I think I need to show this idea to our brides with full on backlink love. Thank you EAD!!

    Hi, I love this and will definitely be making these! One question- what size craft boxes were used?

    Thanks!

  10. The hustle and bustle, the giving and receiving all seem to cause us to take our eyes off of the true meaning.
    It is said and there is a legend that Santa Clause comes on the
    Christmas Eve and leave gifts for kids. Children’s gifts have gotten extremely expensive.

  11. Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE this idea. I had actually included it in my 10 Creative DIY Wedding Favors post :)
