These bags are perfect for a candy bar, but I will have to redo the ribbons since they are hole punched on both sides, not easy to put candy in bags. They are good quality and nice looking.

these bags are so poor quaility that Im embarrassed to have them on our table as a wedding gift. The bows were to short to tie so I had to buy stickers to close them. Pattern did not match up on most of them

I found these on the website and fell in love with them. They seemed to be the perfect size for favors. We were looking in the stores but they never had what we wanted. We haven't tested them out yet but I'm sure they will be great!

If you don't expect perfection they're fine...
I purchased these along with the mini Valentine's notebooks (item 32/187) and two-sided Valentine stamps (item 32/470) for my kids to give out at school instead of the little boxed cards that now inevitably include cheap, sticky candy! One package of each item was enough to cover two classrooms with a few left over to give to some of the other kids in our neighborhood.
The package of favor bags was a bit of a mess when I got them, but surprisingly only about 25% of them (ha!) were folded incorrectly. I used the side of a spoon to make new creases in the vellum where necessary and they looked okay after that.
The ribbons are way too short (for me, at least,) but I was planning on discarding them anyway. I bought red ribbon in a few different shades as a substitute - after all, it was Valentine's Day!
These worked out great for my purpose, but I'd advise those that would purchase these bags for a more formal affair to order well in advance - these need a little love (and nicer ribbon - maybe in your wedding colors?) before they'd be "ready for primetime."
And okay, I admit it, I DID add a few Kisses to each bag to, umm, help weigh them down... : 0

Great for the Price
I read all of the reviews and chose to purchase these to place little candy favors in for my guests. I completely agree with all of the previous comments - these are adorable bags, but they could use a little tweaking. I can't complain too much for the price, but they are a bit crinkled/frumpy looking upon arrival. The ribbon is only too short if you plan on keeping the bag standing open (no problems here). The "made in China" stamp on the bottom is a big of a nuisance, but it's on the bottom - who cares!

They are just ok
The reviews are correct. They are flimsy and cost alot to fill. They look ok, not as cute as the picture. These are about 4in tall and will tip over if you do not fill properly. The ribbon is short and it takes a while to tie (I bought 192 of these). Overall, these are a PRACTICAL favor solution so do not expect perfection. They will do for my wedding this weekend but I would not recommend these.

Ok, but quality is under par
I used these for wedding favors.
PROS: They were a great size to fill with candy, and the bags themselves looked pretty nice.
CONS: However, there was a cheap looking stamp in big bold letters that said "MADE IN CHINA" on the bottom, which I would have preferred not to have. They are a pain to fill and close because the ribbon is too short. When you open the bag to fill it, the ribbon pops out the holes, and you have to restring the tips of the fraying ribbon through the tiny holes (this took forever). Then, the ribbons are just a wee bit too short. You cannot tie a bow with them. If the ribbon was just 2 inches longer it would have been perfect, but I ended up having to tie just a regular knot, with ribbon tips sticking out, and it didn't have the same look as the bows I had been hoping for. I could have gotten new ribbon to re-string the bags, but that defeats the purpose of buying bags with ribbon already on them.
It worked out, but they didn't have the visual impact I had thought they would have because they looked kind of cheap. if I could do it all over again, I would not get these bags.

I bought these bags for my silver wedding anniversary and after reading the reviews I worried, but when I received them I was very suprised. The are so cute, I'm filling them with mini chocolate and glue dotting seating cards to them. I think it will be something different and I'm sure a hit, better then the mini picture frames, or those little picture/card holders which is so over done and a waste of money, I always throw them out. They do need a longer ribbon but it's no big deal. I'm buying two more sets of them. They do say made in China on the bottom, but was isn't?
