I’ve been in total crafting mode lately. I think it might be the change in weather. As soon as I get off work, all I want to do is get home to my cozy apartment (cozy=small) and work on crafty wedding things. This is not particularly helpful to my get-in-wedding-shape-by-working-out-after-work plan, but I digress…
My latest project was the containers for our wedding donuts. That’s right, I said it. Wedding donuts, yo! Just in case you don’t remember, let me refresh your appetite:
The company that’s going to be making the hot, fresh, cinnamon-sugar deliciousness at the end of our reception supplies glassine bags for the donuts as part of the package price. Sweet! But…
the bags have the company’s logo on them. Uh. No thank you. So, I started looking for other options that would allow me to personalize the donut bags without costing an arm and a leg. I also didn’t want to spend a ton of time on the project. Let’s be honest…it’s a donut bag. It will become trash within minutes, so I simply wanted it to tie into our color scheme and logo design and be cute. That’s it.
I did a quick online search for glassine bags (those kind of waxy bags that keep grease from seeping through…you know the ones), and found these in our wedding yellow.

Then I picked up some large round labels from LabelOutfitters.com. A little design work and a little bit of time and….
Cute, right? And it was really inexpensive – $9 for 100 bags, $6 for 120 labels, plus shipping costs. I think it was totally worth it, especially since these will serve as our faux favors.
