DIY Smores Kit

Here is a fun idea for giving a favor gift that your guests can use. As I was playing around on the internet and wedding sites I came across this neat idea.

Let your guests enjoy taking their personal smores kit home and have fun preparing a sweet treat. You may also offer them an opportunity to prepare them at the venue by creating a smores bar as an additional wow factor.

Here are the details from a past bride:Materials:
1. Hershey's Chocolate Bars
2. Graham Crackers

3. Marshmallows

4. Wire Hangers

5. Cellophane Bags in 3 Sizes

6. Adhesive Paper and Cardstock

7. Labels and Instructions design (downloadable pdfs right here and here.)

8. Kraft Box with Lid 4.75" x 6" x 2.5"

9. Tissue

10. Ribbon

11. Scissors

12. Wire Cutter

STEP 1: Remove the marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers from their original packaging and put them in cellophane bags. Here we put six graham cracker squares in a 4" x 6" bag, Three chocolate squares in a 5" x 3" bag, and about 10 marshmallows in a 5.5" x 8" bag.

STEP 2: With the wire cutters, cut off the head of the hanger and then bend the hanger in fourths so it fits the length of the box. Secure it with ribbon.
