These classic heart shaped favor boxes can be made in a range of colors using the printable template, or you can print off red and gold, or silver and white variations using the 1:6 scale printables directly.
If you have a paper similar to the one used for your invitations, or a paper that matches other items of your decor, you can print the template outline pdf (acrobat reader file) on your special paper to cut boxes directly from your paper so they match your chosen theme. The outlines used to cut the templates can be turned to the inside of the box so they won't be seen.
Moss or miniature ivy topiaries are easy to make from inexpensive craft materials. Although the instructions show these topiaries in the shape of hearts, they can be made in a range of shapes to match your theme. You can insert them into small flower pots, or 'plant' them in printable Versailles boxes made from lightweight card or cut from craft wood or veneer tape
To make the topiaries closely match your color scheme, add tiny dried or paper flowers, bows made from fine silk ribbon, or pearl beads on top of bows.
This gallery showcases miniature and special anniversary souvenirs made by members of the miniatures community. Many of the keepsakes are presents, given to mark a special day in a friend or relative's life. Some were designed as shower or wedding gifts, and include special mementos saved from the actual day and incorporated into the miniature.
These mementos are a great item to place in a deep frame, similar to traditional miniature vignettes. They can then be hung on a wall to remind the recipient of their special day.
If you want a tiny cushion to tie a ring to, and have a scrap of treasured needlework, an old hanky, or something else you thought was too small to use for your wedding, think about making a ring cushion from the small piece you have to work with. The cushion can also be created with new needlework for the occasion. Miniature cushions don't take very long to stitch. Some suitable patterns on the Miniatures site include:
You can also make a cushion and decorate it with tiny silk bows made on an easy to make bow former. Sewing these over a scrap of lace or silk, and centering the bows with small pearls will make a lovely decorated ring cushion as well.
Although the doves in these instructions were made from air dry clay, you can make similar doves out of fondant paste using the same instruction if you want to use them for cake decorations. The doves are easy to model. For shower decorations, or for anniversary souvenirs, you can also make the woven wicker bird cage from white 'cake' wire available in cake decorating sections of the craft store.
