Sweet 16 Party Favors

My girlfriend asked me if I would help her make these party favors for her friend's daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. I made these for Valentine's day and she loved them and wanted to make something similar for this party. These contain one each of the Nestle Treasures candy instead of the Hershey Nuggets because the wrapper on them was purple and she wanted to use these colors. We cut the lavender lace and gable green cardstock to 1 1/2" x 4 1/2 " and scored them at 1 3/4" and 2 3/4". The corners were punched with the ticket corner punch. The main image was stamped in both green galore and lavender lace, as was the word "Sweet" using PTI's Sweet Love set. The number "16" was hand-written using the coordinating SU marker. The 1" punch was used to punch it out and it was mounted on the yellow Marvy circle scallop punch. So far, this project was easy. Then came punching the hole, putting the eyelet in, and tying the ribbon. Well, as you can see by the two on the left, the eyelet fell by the wayside, and the bow turned into a knot! You see, we made 75 of these and we just started cutting some corners for ease sake! They looked just as pretty! The Treasure candy was slightly smaller than the Nugget, so we had to put a glue dot on the bottom of the candy to make it stay in the wrapper. When we had them all done and in the box, they looked so cute! I hope everyone likes them and appreciates the time we put into them! Thanks for stopping by!
