Lottery Ticket Favor

Has anyone else done this? I really want to do that, but I wanted to see what others thought of it and how we should package / present them.

Thanks!

    I think this is a cute idea, and one of the few "non-edible" favors that I think would be fun to get.

    BTW:  I have a co-worker who always gives her friends scratch off tickets for their birthday, and one of our co-workers won $100 on her birthday!

    We are! FI loves lottery tickets and I love chocolate so when we found the saying "Hugs, Kisses, and Riches from the New Mr. & Mrs." We decided to go with it and put the hershey kisses and hugs along with a lottery ticket(attach a penny with your year on it) in a favor box. If they lose on the ticket they still get a little something.

    Do you happen to have a picture of that!? I think that sounds really cute. And what is a "hug?" :)

    My daughter had a very loose Irish theme to her wedding.  In FL we have a scratch off lottery ticket that has shamrocks on it so that's what she purchased for each guest.  Each guest had a little glassine envelope at their seat with a lottery ticket and a penny in it.  Everyone had a lot of fun with it and I'm happy to say that I won some money at my daughter's wedding!

    Ours aren't fully assembled yet but here are the favor boxes that it will all go into. You can prob find the Hershey kisses in your wedding colors. HUGS are made by Hershey's also- basically a hershey kiss that is swirled with white chocolate and milk chocolate.

    My coworker did this for his wedding. They just put the tickets in little envelopes and put one at each palce setting.

    Oooh those bozes are cute...I like them. It is perfect, because it is tall so you can get the ticket and the candy in there!

    What a fun idea! I have been on the fence about favors,as I have not found anything that I thought people would actually remember (or want) to take with them. But I think I might do this for our April wedding. It can be done in a pretty way for little $, and it would be great if someone actually won some $. If I were a wedding guest I think I would enjoy this favor, as I enjoy buying a scratcher ticket a few times a year. Thank you for your idea!

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS IDEA!  It is original but something that literally anyone can enjoy.  I don't know anyone who doesn't love a chance to get some extra money, even if it's just a dollar.  And the candy is good for those who don't win!

    Super fantastic idea!!  Totally going to use it!
