I love using French newspaper for projects. Le Monde Diplomatique is a favorite because it doesn't bleed black ink and it's shinier than other papers. I made these little candy favors for Project Wedding. You can see the whole story over on their site.
Photos + concept: Chelsea Fuss for Project Wedding.

Jacky took the words right out of my mouth but I’ll repeat it anyway.

What a great idea, Chelsea! And those little tins of raspberry candies remind me of my childhood. My mom lived in France growing up and loves buying those as they reminded her of those years.

I looked all over for those little raspberry candies after seeing them in a mag interior. I wanted to use them for a wedding favour, but alas, neither I or my bridesmaids could find them. Are you able to share the brand? I would like to track them down anyway!
