DIY: Monogram Gift & Favor Bags


By: Danyelle Mathews

Do you have friends and family traveling great distances to attend your big day? If so, you might consider putting together little favor bags to welcome them when they arrive. You can include an itinerary for the festivities, some favorite treats and even personalized stationery to help them feel welcomed and appreciated.

You will need: fabric drawstring bags, freezer paper, x-acto knife, pencil, paint, fabric medium, initial template, foam paintbrush, iron, small bowl   


Step One

Trace a monogram print-out to the freezer paper using a pencil. (Tip- here is great resource for unique fonts) 


Step Two 

Carefully cut out the monogram with the x-acto knife. 


Step Three

With your iron, adhere the monogram template to the drawstring bag. Once the template is adhered, mix two parts paint to one part fabric medium in a small bowl.


Step Four 

Carefully paint over the monogram template.

Once the paint is dry, remove the template and fill your bag with your chosen treats. You can use this same idea to create favors or gift bags for your bridesmaids and groomsmen.
