DIY Travel Tumblers for Chai: The Perfect Party Favour!

diy travel tumblers for chaiRecently I was talking to a friend of mine about ideas for party favours. We were trying to come up with an idea for something easy to put together, not too costly, and useful for a family wedding. There’s nothing worse than spending time and money on putting together party favours and having people toss them out as soon as they get home.  

A few days after that conversation I came across some ‘design it yourself’ tumblers at my local dollar store. They come with a paper template you can replace and create a custom design. Instantly the DIY light bulb went off in my head – chai to go tumblers! What desi family wouldn’t want a supply of these in their cupboard. Not to mention, this is literally the easiest DIY you will ever do. Don’t have a crafty bone in your body? It’s okay, you can still use scissors 😉

I love that you can personalize this project with your favourite colours, or even to match your wedding theme!
