Stamped favor bags that are so cool they could BE the favor

Posted by

These cotton muslin drawstring bags are a classy way to present your wedding-day favors. Stamp them with your own design and you can fill them with pretty much anything — the possibilities are endless! I personally have made swag bags to help promote my band. I wanted to give earplugs out at our shows because we are LOUD — and these bags are a super fun way to do so.

What you need:


First you need to purchase your cotton muslin drawstring bags. I got mine from CelestialGifts on Etsy, and I purchased the 2.3/4 x 4 size. It costs about $21 for 100 bags, including shipping.

Next you need your stamp. For about $10, I custom ordered mine using my band logo — maybe you want to use your own wedding logo? Or there are great stamps at craft stores and/or teacher supply stores if you want to do something like a bird or a heart or the word “love.”

Then you just stamp your bags. It really is that easy. Put a piece of cardboard in before you stamp to prevent the ink bleeding through to the back of the bag. But depending on your stamp, you may not even have to do that.


Now fill your bags with cool stuff! My bags contain a a 1″ pin with my logo, a custom temporary tattoo of the same logo, and earplugs!


But there are SO many more things you can do! Julie and Todd (who inspired this project) used a simple Martha Stewart bird stamp and filled their bags with birdseed.


Other ideas include lavender (for tossing during your exit), the game of Jacks, a recipe, wildflower seeds, magnetic poetry, a little photo of you… what ideas do you have?

  1. I am going to fill the mini-muslin bags with assorted favored green tea bags. i also saw a self inking stamp that says ” love is sweet” that i am interested in stamped on each bag! by the way, i love the flower bulb idea!!

  2. I just love these, and it doesn’t get any easier that this! I went hunting for rubber stamps and the choices are endless.

  3. such an inspiration!! we have decided to go with the seeds idea, as thought it would a lasting gift. (well actually, i say WE but i mean ME, because Steve had no idea what i was talking about, although he does remember the little sugared almonds at wedding when he was a kid!) we have chosen red and green kangaroo paw seeds for everyone…not sure what else i will put in there, but im EXCITED thanks so much for the idea!!

  4. For a steampunk themed wedding, we’re stamping muslin bags with a personalized logo stamp with our names and a zeppelin. Inside the guests will get: a pair of googles, lavender mint glycerine soap in a gear/cog pattern, and a tin with peppermint lip balm. We don’t have a lot of guests, so I went a little nuts. If you’re on a budget, I’d look into the lip balm tins at Bulk Apothacary– you can get them filled and order labels to print yourself. Pretty and easy-peasy.
