New Year's Day Favors

Happy Happy New Year!!!  This year we decided to have a little get together for New Year's Eve.   So, I made some candy favors but, I also made these take home favors for the day after.   I started with a larger size Chinese take out box.   I added some white shredded paper, a gel pack eye mask, a small bottle of ibuprofen, two Starbuck's instant coffee packets, some purse size Kleenex and some truffles. 

I decorated these using the Ribbons & Rosette's cartridge and the Wall Decor and More.   The clocks on the front were cut from Wall Decor and More, cut at 4".   The base layer is plain black and the white layer is the Core'dinations 'White Gloves' paper....just a little glitter.   Then I cut a 3" circle using George and Basic Shapes in a mat silver.   The Rosette was cut from Core'dinations 'black tie' paper using 5 Grass cuts at 2" each.   I scored them and then glued them all together with a 3" black circle hot glued to the back, to keep them together and to attach them to the take out boxes.  I finished with some black tulle wrapped around and tied in a bow at the top.
As you can see, I also attached one to a glass jar centerpiece that I had put the ladies' party horns and crowns in.   I had plain black horns so, I covered the ones for the ladies in some pretty paper and then stuck them in this glass jar and then put some lip gloss in each one, for before midnight!
