Favors for Wedding Shower

We had another snow storm today......It looks like there is another foot of snow out there. Good thing there was some thawing before this current storm. I would have hated to see another foot of snow in my backyard on top of what we already got this poor dogs are getting lost in all of this snow!

So, I decided that today would be a great day to start working on the favors for my Nieces Bridal Shower. Here is the first sample that I made. I have to shop for a patterned paper for the boxes and some satin ribbon. They were very easy to put together. They're made from a 8 1/2"x 11" piece of cardstock. I scored them on my Scor-pal and made a few cuts, folded and punched the flap and I was done. I have to make approx. 70 of these, so I wanted something simple. I will either fill them with Ghirardelli squares or some other type of candy (I haven't got that far yet). I got the inspiration and tutorial for these on SCS website, they're called the 2-5-7-10 Box. The label on each one says, "A Shower of Good Wishes for Dawn & Chad"

Thanks for looking.
