DIY Origami Wedding Favors with Candy

No, I am not done with the twee papercraft. Yes, I know it is getting a little wacky. But here are the origami wedding favors.

I just gave myself diabetes.

8-bit motif optional


I ordered three packs of Japanese Tant Origami Paper in blue and used all the pastel shades. Also I notice I did this in May of last year. It’s possible I had some excess excited energy to work off.


The container is the famous origami star box.

Born to fold, yo.

I used 6″ x 6″ (15.25 cm x 15.25 cm) paper.


I crimped the petals for general fanciness.


And I applied some glue stick to keep the petals stuck.

The Tags

Midi music not included

Small to encourage you to make your own.

I ordered the tags from They come pre-perforated with a little white string to tie them on. I ordered small cellophane bags from them, too.

The Candy

Exclamation points are always in fashion

Sassy phrases at your discretion

I went with custom-printed M&Ms. I poked around and figured the most cost-effective way to do this was to order 5 lbs. of blank white M&Ms from A Candy Store and 2 lbs. of multi-colored custom-printed M&Ms from the M&M website

Do place your orders like a month in advance, since they will take time to arrive and assemble.


The M&Ms come with a little measuring scoop. You should wash it before using, but don’t be like me and dry it in haste. You will end up with damp M&Ms and be quite unhappy with yourself.

It took 2 or 3 hours to put them together. Pretty simple!

Sandalwood scented fans also not included.

Rings not included.

Now go get ’em!


Draws. Sweats. Eats too much sugar-free candy.
