DIY Something Blue Bridal Shower Favor

Celebrate tradition with a "Something Blue" bridal shower party! At the end of the night, send your guests home with this adorable DIY Something Blue Bridal Shower Favor complete with free printables!

You know how the old saying goes - something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. So whether or not the wedding colors are blue, this theme can work for every bridal shower. After all, every bride needs “something blue!”

This theme is a fun excuse to go all-out with monochromatic decorations in many shades of blue, and you can incorporate the color with blue decorations, like table linens, balloons, or pom poms. You can even serve food that is on-theme, such as blue corn chips, blue martinis, or blueberry pie!

You’ll also need a blue favor for your shower guests to take home. Edible favors are a go-to, but if you’re looking for something different, how about thanking the guests with a fun blue nail polish? And you can wrap up the polish bottle in these DIY printable favor boxes. Not only are they easy to make, but they will also look great on display during the bridal shower! (Nail polish is just one idea, by the way. Feel free to substitute blue candies or jewelry!) Here’s how to make them:

  • Something blue favor box template (download it here)
  • White cardstock paper and printer
  • Scissors
  • Bone folder (optional)
  • Glue
  • >Blue nail polish (or other small blue favor)
  • Blue tissue paper

Step 1: Download the Something Blue favor box template and print out as many as you need for your guests onto the white cardstock paper.

Using scissors, cut each one out along the solid lines. Then, fold each one along the dashed lines.

Using a bone folder helps to get crisp edges on the folds.

Step 2: Assemble the box by gluing the tab (along the right side) to the opposite side.

Then glue the bottom tabs together.

Step 3: Fill the box with blue tissue paper before adding your favor (the nail polish, or whatever other blue favor you choose)

Close the top and your party favor is ready for gifting!
