Royal Lace® Doily Crafts

Send guests home from the wedding with sweet “lace” favors
Save your “something blue: for the end of the night and present guests with these little packages.
Doilies were originally made from real lace; the paper versions, of course, are common today. Blue ones make unexpected wrappers for favors.

Materials needed:

Royal Lace medallion doily
-chocolate bar or other treat
-ribbons
-double-sided tape
-glue

Directions:

  1. Place a miniature chocolate bar or other treat in the center of a round doily and fold its sides in.
  2. Thread ribbon through both sides (make slits with a utility knife first if necessary), pull to center it and hold it in place with a sticker inscribed with a message or monogram.
  3. Fold the top and bottom of the doily over and secure with double-sided tape.
  4. Bring the ribbon ends around, trim them so that they just overlap and glue ends together.
  5. Next, lay a 1 ½” piece of flat ribbon, bring the ends in to overlap at the center and glue together; wrap another small piece of ribbon around the center and glue this flat bow to the favor.

Royal Lace® Doily Crafts

Materials needed:

An all-white reception table abounds with paper-lace ornaments.
A row of enchanting luminaria (top-left) is composed of large glass candle holders surrounded by screens made from square and rectangular doilies mounted on sturdy translucent vellum.
A waxed round doily rests beneath a glass charger.
The calligraphic place cards sandwiched between paper lace disks.

Directions:

  1. Fold 2 ½” diameter round doilies in half, right sides in; fix the back half of each doily to either the front or back of the calligraphic place card with a glue stick and fold down other halves to make a base, affixing a 2” diameter round label to the underside for stability; stand the charming result on top the plate.

A flower girl in an eyelet dress holds a nosegay of blue hydrangeas in a prim doily cuff; flowers made of trimmed and gathered doilies enhance the bouquet and the barrette in her hair.
