DIY Coffee Bean Wedding Favors - Inspired By This

DIY Coffee Bean Wedding Favors

Blue Magpie Invitations cooked up the cutest little wedding favors for the wedding blog that you’ll have so much fun personalizing! These DIY coffee bean and tea canvas printed bags are a cute way to thank your guests for coming with something they’ll actually use! Fill ‘em up with her favorite tea or his favorite brew and leave your guests sippin’ on sweet thoughts of you!

They designed a couple wedding phrase rubber stamps to go with their Vintage Floral Invitations and thought it would be fun to show you how easy it is to create unique and thoughtful wedding favors for your guests.

What You Need:
4″ x 6” muslin favor bags (we found ours here)
Rubber stamp (we used one of our own designs that can be found in their Etsy shop)
Ink pad (any color you like, we used this one)
5/8” ribbon cut to 9” strands (we chose a color to match our ink)
Scissors with very sharp tips
Paper clip
Whole bean coffee and/or your favorite tea (we love this rose tea from American Tea Room)
Mini wooden spoons (ours are 5” long; you can find similar ones here)

Directions:

STEP 1:  Stamp each linen bag. We like using pigment ink because the color is more saturated and has better coverage. Let it dry for about an hour. Then, we suggest running a hot iron over each stamped image to set the ink and avoid smearing.

STEP 2:  Fold the linen bag in half and at about 5/8th of an inch in from the edge, use one tip of the scissors to poke a small hole through all four layers of fabric. Make sure not to make the hole too big. Having a small hole keeps any loose tea or coffee from falling out and it also gives the ribbon a pretty gathered look.

STEP 3:  Unroll your paper clip leaving one end still folded in. You want it to serve as a hook to pull the ribbon through the hole. Pierce the unrolled paper clip through one side of the ribbon. On one side of the bag, pull the paper clip and ribbon through both holes. Since the hole is small this may require some gentle pulling, but try not to pull too fast or forcefully because it may tear a bigger hole.

STEP 4:  Pull paper clip and ribbon around the edge to the other side of the bag and pull the ribbon through the opposite holes.
STEP 5:  Your paper clip and ribbon should now be inside the bag. You can either tie a knot with both ends of the ribbon inside the bag, or quickly run the ends through a sewing machine to secure them.

STEP 6:  Fill your bag with coffee beans or tea and put your wooden spoon inside either side of the holster.

And there you go! Perfectly adorable and personal wedding favors! To add an additional personal touch, you can always place a little note inside each one or even have custom rubber stamps made with your names and wedding date.

Or how about “His Favorite Coffee” and “Her Favorite Tea”?

Or “The Perfect Blend”?

Or “Hot Stuff” and your names?

Okay, I’m clearly having too much fun with this…you get the idea!
