Stephanie's Fall Wedding Favours

My sister, Stephanie, loved the idea of using M&M's with a picture of herself and Chris for the wedding favours. My job was to create a favour appropriate for a fall wedding that displayed the M&M's!!! The M&M's actually also have the wedding date and just married printed on them.

I cut and embossed sawdust cardstock using the Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves. Then I stamped each leaf using a wedding word stamp from Michael's and Stampin' Up Close to Cocoa ink. Next I coloured each leaf with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Wild Honey and Barn Door using an Inkessentials Ink Blending Tool. I edged each leaf with an Adirondack Gold acrylic paint dabber. Then I punched a 1 3/4" circle to add the Sweet Treat cups. Stephanie and I filled the cups with the M&M's. Finally, we backed the leaves using brown sparkly Scrapbook Sally cardstock and added a small label with the names and wedding date.

We're really happy with the end result, and we got a great reaction from the wedding guests!!! Although too many non-crafters thought that we just ordered them package in the leaves. LOL :)

The entire day was wonderful filled with love, laughter and joy. Stephanie was so beautiful and Chris so handsome. I was honoured to help in any way possible. It is day that I will always cherish. :)
