Love Poem Favor Boxes

In oogling the pretty favor packaging goodness over at Martha Stewart Weddings, I stumbled upon something inspiring. As I've mentioned, I have a bit of an obsession with words and pretty readings and I'm looking for many ways to incorporate beyond our ceremony.

These favor boxes may be just what I'm looking for.

The instructions look fairly simple...although I've yet to try my hand at any DIY projects so we'll have to see. I would make a few tweaks...leaving in tact the off-center font on the box but perhaps switching the tie and removing the LOVE beads. I would consider a mix of poems and sonnets to create some depth to the favors so hopefully couples would go home with two different readings.

The Seemingly Simple Instructions:

A beaded message and a few lines of Shakespearean verse photocopied onto newsprint paper spell out pure romance.

Wrap box in 81/2-by-6-inch paper, securing with double-sided tape. Fold 24 inches of waxed twine in half; tie knot 81/2 inches from fold. Thread on beads; knot again.

Interesting post... I can see that you put a lot of hard work on your blog. I'm sure I'd visit here more often. George from love poem.

I want not concur on it. I over warm-hearted post. Specially the title-deed attracted me to review the unscathed story.
