I made these favors for my friend's daughter's HS graduation party. They are favor boxes (from Michael's) filled with Red Hots (her favorite candy...which happen to be her school's colors) and sealed with a label. I tied it up with red ribbon and slipped a wish ticket under the knot. All of the guests will be asked to write their wish for Sarah on the back of the ticket and deposit it in a jar. Won't that be a nice present for Sarah...all the good wishes of people who love and care for her together in a jar for her to see anytime she likes?
This same idea would be lovely for a wedding, birthday, and shower. When a friend popped in the cottage yesterday, she was so taken with this idea that she decided to use it for her daughter's graduation luncheon with her friends and their mothers. Each girl will have a box that says Congratulations personlized with their name and they will each get enough tickets to write their wishes to each other. They'll collect the wishes in the favor boxes at the end of the luncheon.
**Edited to add: The boxes are 2" x 2". I made the labels by printing a page of 6 up, putting them through the Xyron with repositionable adhesive, and then cutting them into 2" x 4" labels. The calligraphy font is called Cezanne and it is based on Cezanne's signature and handwriting. You can find it here: www.myfonts.com.
