Friendship Favor Boxes for Valentine's Day
To let guests take a bit of the party home, wrap up something sweet -- such as a truffle or a trinket -- inside pretty party favor boxes.
- Purchase small gift boxes; wrap boxes and tops separately in papers that match your party's theme.
- Add your sweet treat.
- Personalize filled boxes by using a computer to print names or phrases on computer-compatible sheets of vellum.
- Cut printed vellum into strips.
- Wrap boxes with ribbon that's narrower than your vellum strips, then wrap vellum strips over ribbon, securing with tape on the bottom.
- Attach charms to pieces of even narrower ribbon; tape ribbons to bottom of boxes, and bring charms over tops of boxes. Wrap with gauzy ribbon.
