Every two months, I get together with some girls in my neighborhood and play Bunco. (This tells you just how "suburban" I really am!) It's really an excuse to get together, eat food, drink wine and celebrate whatever season is going on. This month, Bunco's theme is Valentine's Day and I did the party favors.
I found the tiny Kraft hardcover journals at Pat Catans. I cut out some blush paper, wrote "Love" in orange-red calligraphy, and Xyron-ed the paper to the books. I covered the mini-golf pencils (from Staples) in some red chrysanthemum paper cut 1-inch wide by the length of the pencil. I painted some Mod Podge onto the paper strips and rolled the pencils into them - easy.
Finally, I used the Xyron again to make some simple rectangular strips from the chrysanthemum paper to loosely close the glassine bags. I had so much fun making these - and they were so simple - that I will probably make more and mail them out for Valentine's Day!
