I've spent the last month helping both of my sisters create shower and party favors and each time, I neglected to take pictures. I can't explain it. Y'know, I have a blog about making stuff and I forget to take pictures????
Anyway, I just finished these favors for my hubby's kanreki celebration and this time I didn't forget to take pictures!
This a shot of the favors in progress. Evidently, as you can see, I am a very messy worker. I know that it doesn't look like much, but the pieces to the puzzle are all hiding in there somewhere.
I made each favor in a simple matchbook style.
The inside holds a Starbucks gift card and a couple bars of Ghiradelli chocolate.
In Hawaii, every occasion is graced with a lei. This is a cigar lei made from the flowers of the Cupea Ignea Shrub. The flowers are very tiny so each lei is made from approximately 2000 flowers. This will match my hubby's red shirt perfectly.
We plan to celebrate and stuff our faces full of yummy food at Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ. I can't wait.
On another note, thank you so much for your comments about the plastic "city" that I'm building in my sewing room. I really enjoyed reading your comments. Some of you were wondering how I would access the items on the bottom. The items that are stacked on the lower half are supplies that I seldom use but still want to keep around. My desk is very sturdy, so stepping on top of it to access the containers isn't a problem. I realize that this isn't an ideal way of creating storage, but at this point, it is the only way possible given the amount of space that I have. I realize that I have way too many supplies, but for now, it is what it is, and I am keepin' all of it! Hehehehehe!
