One of the most fun and rewarding wedding crafts is to make your own homemade wedding favors. Do it yourself wedding favors are a way to say thank you to your guests. Plus, wedding favor crafts can be very inexpensive to make if you use a little creativity.
A favor is a little token from the two of you, presented to everyone. A favor can be a keepsake that the guests take home, or an edible favor that can be eaten before or after dinner. You might enjoy favors that help guests join in the celebration or are functional at the actual wedding. Others, like wedding CD favors are to be enjoyed by guests later. So may wedding favor crafts! So little time!
Here is one idea on homemade favors.

Wedding Cookie Table, Tips & Ideas
A scrumptious wedding cookie table is a fantastic wedding favor for guests and is sure to be lots of fun and well appreciated! After all, who doesn't love a cookie!
Choose cookies that you can make using basically the same ingredients. Chocolate chip (with and without nuts), peanut butter with a Reece's Peanut Butter cup center, Oatmeal with white chocolate and / or Craisins, and Snicker doodles. The cookies were all different, but you do not have to buy any off the wall ingredients... a drop cookie is easiest. Make the cookies smaller than average. It will stretch the dough, and made it easier to put in the boxes.
Budget 4 to 6 cookies per guest.
For the dough, you can make it up a week before the wedding and put it in the freezer, you can freeze cookie dough. Take the dough out of the freezer the night before baking.
Recruit a few people to help you bake, For presentation put the cookies in cute containers. Place handmade signs on each container to identify the cookies.
