When I think of an engagement ring, I think of the old story about finding a diamond ring in a Cracker Jack box. With that thought in mind, it immediately gave me the idea to make Cracker Jack favors.
|I purchased 35 Cracker Jack boxes at the dollar store.|
|I then purchased 35 pairs of cubic zirconia stud earrings from the costume jewelry wholesale market in NYC.|
The studs replaced the idea of finding a diamond ring in a Cracker Jack box. I purchased Tiffany blue colored jewelry bags by the dozen, removed the studs from the original packaging and placed them in the bag.
|I then carefully cut open the silver liner with a pair of scissors and dumped the contents into a bowl.|
|I removed the Cracker Jack striped prize, punched a hole in the upper left corner and fed one end of the silk tie on the jewelry bag and tied a bow.|
|Here, I neatly folded the foil closed and hot glued the cardboard flaps back together, as if it never appeared opened before.|
I wrapped the box in Tiffany Blue colored wrapping paper and tied the package with white silk ribbon.
|I spray painted a long shallow basket white and placed all the favors inside.|
