My first attempt at favors.
Basically olive ribbon, clear plastic boxes and chocolate almonds instead of jordan almonds..since jordan almonds are sooo soo vile!

The ribbon in the background will be used for other favors, as well to wrap around the vase centerpieces parhaps.
The boxes came in a kit from michaels. I wasnt originally going to buy the kit, but rather buy just the boxes from a place in Vancouver, but these ended up being much cheaper after the 40% coupon. It comes with silver ribbon and silver thank you tags, which I am not using. Ill be making my own tags once my printer is fixed.

Holy crap, those are beautiful!!  I love them!  And I agree with you on the Jordan almond thing...chocolate almonds are 100x better

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for those boxes?

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for those boxes?

The box of 50, with the ribbon and tags were oroginally 36$ cdn, but with 40% off, it was 22$cdn each box of 50.

the olive ribbon was on sale for 2.50 per roll.
the large ribbon was on sale 2 for 8$
and the teeny brown ribbon was 59 cents cdn.
