takeout goodies

In arty crafty on December 11, 2006 by carinasuyin

Lish’s bridal shower favour box: A chinese noodle takeout box (available from arts and craft supplies stores in varying sizes) is used to contain the favours: a bottle of soap bubble liquid, bubble blower, nail polish, wooden paper clip and magnet, a mini vial of perfume, a packet of jelly beans and some gold-coloured filler material to prevent the items from moving around. A handmade wrist corsage (foam roses, artificial ivy leaves and double satin ribbons) for each chi mui to wear on the wedding day doubles up as the decor/wrapping for the box and is fixed in place with cellophane tape. Finally, to personalise the whole package: a nametag made from brown cardboard paper and labeled in white ink (plus fake stitches around the edges). Voila!

P/s: They looked especially cute when arranged together, like pots of flowers, and the metal handle of the takeout box makes for easy handling/carrying.

  2. Kesian, ada orang emo sebab kalah debat ke? Hee…

  3. Cute goodies pack. Actually what it is for? Souvenir as appreciation?

  4. Hi Shyuing! Yup, basically it’s a goodie pack for the girls attending the bridal shower. Some items inside can be used for party activities while the other favours plus the heart-shaped stress ball are simply included to add fun factor. The more the merrier, shower mahh hehe. The celebrated bride-to-be also gets one on top of other presents from the girls. If you have a theme, you can customise the favours given. It’s really up to budget and creativity 🙂

    It’s more of a western culture thingie to have a bridal shower, I guess. The traditional Chinese celebration would be the wedding eve ceremony cum makan at the bride’s house.

  5. I see. Eh creative-nya. xD
    Wooh really experienced now since attending so many weddings. 😀

  6. I love, love, love your favour box idea. Been searching for the chinese take out box. Where exactly did you get them from?

  7. Hi Fairuz! Thanks a lot 🙂 I’m not sure where to get them in Malaysia. In Singapore, they’re available at Spotlight craft supplies. If you’re ordering in bulk, you can buy them online from wholesale suppliers; might be cheaper.
