One Favor: Five Ways

Today's blah favor box alteration (see this post for what the hell I'm talking about) is:

That was created from this:

But how?

First, I draped some white tulle over the linen "tablecloth" (find tulle at Wal-Mart or JoAnn's for around $1.29 a yard). Then I laid some black grosgrain ribbon back and forth on top of the tulle (purchased at Michael's – from the $1.00 ribbon bin).

Next I gently bunched a simple white napkin (try these from Ikea) together in the center and secured it with the favor box's original black ribbon. As a finishing touch, I laid a white silk peony on top (purchased for 1/2 off at Michael's).

The favor box got a very simple dressing up. I achieved the look of a wide piece of black ribbon by triple wrapping the box (and overlapping the edges of the ribbon) with some cheap black grosgrain ribbon from…where? The $1.00 ribbon bin at Michael's. I finished the classic look with a cute girl tag from everyjotandtittle. I love the idea of have girl tags for the ladies and boy tags for the men!
