We stumbled onto these sweet little DIY mint tin wedding favors over at Martha Stewart Weddings and we just had to share them with you. We love just about everything DIY and aspire to be more like Martha! So with these helpful tips and templates, we might just be a little bit closer! Without further ado, here is Martha’s tutorial:
Tools and Materials
Ink-jet or laser printer
8 1/2-by-11-inch white card stock
8 1/2-by-11-inch white vellum paper (paper-source.com)
Specialty Bottle Supply tins THN4 (specialtybottle.com)
Necco Canada Mints (groovycandies.com)
- Download our PDF files (“Mint to Be” and “A Breath of Fresh Air”) and replace the placeholder text with your own (you only need to do this in one box; the form will automatically fill in the rest). Print the “Mint to Be” text on card stock and the “A Breath of Fresh Air” on vellum paper. Each sheet of card stock and vellum yields three labels.
- Use a craft knife and metal ruler to cut between the crop marks (do not cut all the way to the edges of the paper; this will leave the crop marks intact around all the edges to guide subsequent cuts).
- Line tins with “A Breath of Fresh Air” liners, fill with mints, and close.
- Wrap “Mint to Be” labels around each, and secure with double-sided tape.
