The little tins were darling in and of themselves, but slightly boring for my preferences, so I had to add a bit of ribbon, a couple of coordinating cardstock colors, cut with two just-right punches.
All those extra details just seem to make something good, even better.
We chose a line from "Wicked," to accent the party favors, "Because I knew you, I have been changed for the better."
I've also always wanted to try making one of these lovely banners and give complete credit to Kelly for her excellent tutorial. I'm a huge fan of her card making style and overall creativity--she is my muse! It was in the middle of the night when I spotted the step by step instructions on her blog, and all I had was Halloween cardstock in my daughter's school colors, and I was bound and determined to make a banner right then and there, so I went with it. Now I have a jazzy new banner to hang up in October as well.
