DIY Favor: Yummy Bread and Jam

This DIY project is courtesy of Project Wedding. A special thanks for this wonderful idea. I have to say that this beautiful favor idea is one that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!  I think I love it so much because this is a favor I would WANT to receive as a guest. It has all of the elements of a great favor. It has sentiment and it is useful. It helps that it is yummy too! Hey, a girl gets hungry after dancing! HeHeHe…

bread steps

Step 1
Using the instructions on the package, download label templates and in a program like Adobe Illustrator or Microsoft Paint design some labels. Look for fun and free downloadable fonts at Dafont.com.

 

Fill in names to customize and print them onto your label paper. (2).

 

Step 2
Lay out the food trays (1) and line them with tissue paper (7). Cut the patterned tissue paper into a rectangle shape just larger than the size of the tray. It looks cute hanging off the edge a bit.

 

Step 3
After loaves have been baked and cooled, wrap each mini loaf of bread with wax or parchment paper (5). Tie it up with a bit of Baker’s Twine (9) and apply bread label.

 

Step 4
After jam has been spooned into the mini jars (3). Tie a sweet ribbon around the neck of the bottle and apply the jam label.
