Unique Marshmallow Cake Pop Ideas

These delicious treats are perfect for a bridal shower, or as fun wedding favors. Similar to a cake pop, these tasty marshmallow bites are the best of both worlds. If you love affordable DIY projects, look no further.

Cake pops are a popular choice, but they can be a bit time consuming to make. Why not ‘cheat’ and make marshmallow ‘pops’ instead? They look very cute tied up, and are easy to transport to any event.

Bonus: You don’t have to worry about marshmallows breaking in the car ride to the venue.

What you’ll need:

  • Gift tags (I used the Print My Design option on WPD)
  • Marshmallows
  • Colorful straws
  • Melted Chocolate
  • Decorations – I used mini marshmallows and sprinkles
  • Cellophane bags
  • Twine, lace, or ribbon to tie the bags

  1. Stick the marshmallows onto the top portion of the straws.
  2. Dip the top marshmallow into warm, melted chocolate and then add the decorations. Tip: Stand them upright to properly set/cool.
  3. Place the pops in the cellophane bags, tie with ribbon, and attach the custom gift tags.
  4. Enjoy!

There you have it. Easy, inexpensive and oh-so-delicious (I had to do some quality and taste control of course!) party favors that every guest will enjoy.

DIY Whiskey Bottle Favors

Today we’re showing you how to make infused liquor for a unique wedding favor. With Irish whiskey, orange shavings and cinnamon sticks, you can make favors that look perfect on wooden tables for a rustic rehearsal dinner or for a Fall reception. There are many ways to customize favors to make them true to the two of you. Change the bottles, cocktail recipe, and even personalize your message on the gift tags.

Below, you’ll see how easy it is to mix whiskey, oranges and spicy cinnamon together to make a drink your guests will thank you for.

What you’ll need to make your DIY whiskey bottle favors:

  • Twine
  • Cinnamon
  • Channel knife or orange peeler
  • Gift tags
  • Bottle of Jameson
  • Craft bottles
  • Oranges
  1. Peel the orange rind with a channel knife or orange peeler.
  2. Combine one cinnamon stick, the orange rind and whiskey in a bottle.

3. Let the cocktail mixture sit for at least one month before gifting.
4. Now you have favors that fit a rustic or outdoor wedding theme.

These favors are perfect for a celebration and show guests you went above and beyond to show them you care. If you’re looking for something that goes with a modern look, use vodka and your choice of fruit. Or, try bourbon and simple syrup infused with mint for something more vintage.

Make the DIY whiskey bottle favors look extra personalized with customizable gift tags that match back to your invitations or coordinate with your design. Guests will think you spent a great deal on these (psst…we won’t tell!).

However you style it, make it true to the two of you!

Unique Wedding Favors

Hi Everyone! This is Sarah and Emily from Boxwood Clippings, and we’re so thrilled to be here at Wedding Paper Divas blog today!

Our little brother got married this summer and we’re here to share these beautiful, organic and unique wedding favors we created for the event.

Kristina, the bride wanted the wedding to be simple, elegant and organic. Everything from the dress and flowers to the wedding cake displayed this perfectly.

A wedding favor for your guests to leave home with is the perfect way to show your appreciation and the perfect opportunity to show your personal style.

We thought the sentiment of “Let Love Grow” accompanied with wild flower seeds fit Kristina’s style and vision of her wedding perfectly.

We created a card that read “Let Love Grow” and printed planting instructions on the back.

We then sprinkled wild flower seeds and enclosed in a cellophane envelope and twine.

The wedding couldn’t have turned out more beautiful!

Simplicity always wins in our eyes!

 It was a beautiful day celebrating a beautiful couple we’ll cherish for years to come!

How-To: Gift Tags and Ribbon DIY

Whether you’re looking to add airs and graces to your wedding stationery suite or more of a handcrafted shabby chic feel, our circle gift tags and ribbon will tickle you and your wedding guests pink. Here are two easy ways to add simple embellishments that add to your love story.

DIY #1: Circle Gift Tag, Ribbon & Envelopments©

For this DIY, you will need thick ribbon, an envelopment and a circle gift tag. Style tip: Your circle gift tag selection will depend on where it’s being used. Here it is closing up your wedding stationery suite. In other places, you may choose a simple monogram for the gift tag.

Get the Look:

  1. After you’ve enclosed all the wedding invite essentials within the envelopment, cut a long piece of ribbon.
  2. Wrap the ribbon around the envelopment and place the circle gift tag over the ribbon and the envelopment to seal it. Ta da!

DIY #2: Gift Tags, Ribbon & Favor Boxes

For this DIY, you can choose thick or thin ribbon or both. The world is your oyster! You’ll also need favor boxes and gift tag stickers.

Get the Look:

1. After you have enclosed your delightful favor within the box, cut a piece of ribbon to wrap around the box. The stylish possiblities here are endless: you can double wrap, use two different ribbon colors and different sizes as well.

2. You can choose to tie the ribbon in an elegant bow, or add a gift tag—a circle or square will both do nicely—to seal the deal. Most importantly, remember that good things come in small packages.

DIY Hot Cocoa Wedding Favor

For a winter themed wedding, we suggest finding a wedding favor that matches the season. We always enjoy when brides send their guests home at the end of the night with a sweet treat, and this DIY project helps with just that task! Whether you choose a tried-and-true family recipe, or find a recipe online, this favor will be a personal touch that your guests will love.

Here’s what you’ll need:


  1. Find a favorite hot cocoa recipe that can be made ahead of time (without the liquid, of course!), and print it on a recipe card. You can even coordinate your recipe card with your wedding invitations by using enclosure cards.
  2. Layer the ingredients in a clean Mason jar – this is a fun place to play with colors, by separating the sugar and cocoa powder.
  3. Secure the lid of the jar, and attach the colored craft paper circle to the top for an added pop of color. Attach the gift tag stickers to the front of the jar.
  4. Punch a hole in the recipe card, then loop a ribbon through the hole. Tie the ribbon around the neck of the jar to complete the gift.

Your guests will love this personalized treat, especially during the cold winter season.
