What is a Favour Scroll?

A favour scroll is a great cost effective way of thanking your guests for attending your wedding. Most guests are not expecting a favour or gift, but a little scroll with a thank you poem laid at their place setting is a beautiful way to get your sentiments across. It is a treasured momento of your special day for your friends and family who have been able to attend and will generally be far more appreciated than the regular sugared almonds - which the majority of people don't like!.

Full Instructions:

  1. Use our free Word templates to print your scrolls onto the A4 sheets of paper. It will print 2 favour scrolls per sheet.

  2. Cut the sheets in half so each scroll is A5 in size (a guillotine provides the best finish - but scissors are fine if you're careful!)

  3. Cut your ribbon into the 25cm lengths

  4. Stamp the rubber stamp motif onto the top centre of your scrolls - practice first to make sure you know where the middle is - how much ink to use, and how hard to press. Leave these to dry for about an hour.

  5. Roll each scroll (start rolling from the bottom with it face up). You'll need a friend here - so get someone to hold each reply scroll as you tie the ribbon around it.

  6. Trim the ribbon tails at an angle.

Other things you can do with this scroll

  1. Silk paintings look amazing - they do take time but if you're an arty type, give it a go. You can buy silk, gutta, pins, brushes, silk paint and frames from most art shops. Set up a frame and draw hearts or stars with the gutta, leave to dry, then paint. Cut the silk into mini pictures and use double sided tape to stick them to the top of the invitations, then outline with gutta.

  2. You can slip a feather, flower or a length of one of our star garlands under the ribbon tie to embellish the scroll at the table. Alternatively, sprinkle some heart or star confetti at each place setting.
