Do It Yourself, or DIY, wedding projects allow you to create your own personalized favors and touches that can be applied in any way you can imagine on your special day, for a shower, a party or whenever. All you need are some basic items and a little creativity.
These adorable Do It Yourself Easy Wedding Favors are easy, fun and incorporate your own personal wedding favors made from the heart. You can either use your imagination and draw a sketch by hand for an original design, print off a picture from your computer or simply pick one out of a book or magazine to incorporate your wedding theme.

Your Supply List
Transparent Paper Plain Paper X-acto Knife & Pen or Pencil
1. Using a pen and a plain sheet of paper, we sketched some lovebirds sitting together on a tree branch.
2. Once you have your design ready, lay a sheet of sturdy transparent paper onto your design and tape if necessary to secure the pieces in place.
3. Now its time to cut out your stencil. Using an X-acto knife and a good hard backing (such as a wood panel), carefully cut directly along the stencil line. Take your time on this part.
Hooray, your stencil is done! Now it's time to have fun with it- the possibilities are endless with stencils! To make cute favor totes for your wedding guests, lay a paper bag flat and place your stencil on the bag. Mist with white matte spray paint (making sure to cover the parts of the bag where you don't want spray paint).
