Kristin Crosby: Hi! my name is Kristin from I Do Wedding Essentials and right now I am going to show you how to make wedding favors. I will be showing you how to assemble an inexpensive favor with candy, a Chinese box favor with candy, a non-candy favor that's a little more expensive, but you can do per couple, a more expensive favor with candy and a moderately priced favor that's coffee themed. In order to make these favors, you aren't going to need many tools; most of them you will probably already have at home. You will need to have scissors, a cheap glue gun, ribbon, some regular scotch tape and a variety of candy and favor packaging or cello bags. Some safety precautions to remember before you start are that how glue guns will definitely burn you and you will blister if you touch the hard the hot glue as soon as it's come out or if you touch any of the metal pieces on it and we will be using scissors that are pretty sharp, so be very careful with those as well. Before we start, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I own I Do Wedding Essentials in Leesburg, Virginia. We are located in the downtown historic area and we sell all sorts of wedding supplies, basically, everything you need for a wedding, except the dress. Now, that you know little bit about me, let's get started in making some wedding favors.
