Unexpected Shower Favors

My soon-to-be sister-in-law got married in gorgeous Vermont two weeks ago.  Her bridal shower was held the weekend before the wedding and I eagerly volunteered to do the favors.

I scoured Etsy for days collecting fabulous ideas, but when I came across CrowBiz I knew I had found my unique favors.  The shop specializes in collages, magnets, paperweights, and other crafty items made with vintage paper.  I immediately contacted the artist to order 20 sets of  mini-magnets.  She worked with me on the price, included perfect little drawstring bags, and attached everything to magnetic boards for shipping.  It was an awesome Etsy transaction, and I feel like I was able to contribute something really special to the shower.

Here’s a little peak at my wrapping scheme (all in the bride’s wedding palette).  The materials were easy to find at my local art store, and the calligraphy “thank you” stickers are from the amazing Esty shop, K is for Calligraphy.

The boxes in the back were an extra treat – the bride’s favorite Japanese candy shipped right from Japan!
