FA­VOR YOUR FRIENDS

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP - - Inside -

Treat guests to these adorable party-fa­vor lunch boxes! Spray paint new sil­ver lunch boxes with colors that co­or­di­nate with the over­all scheme. First, re­move the han­dle and ap­ply tape neatly over the latch to pro­tect it from the paint. Leav­ing the lid closed, spray the boxes ac­cord­ing to the paint man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions on the la­bel. Ap­ply more than one coat if nec­es­sary. Once all sides are dry, re­move the tape and reat­tach the han­dle. Per­son­al­ize the boxes for each par­ty­goer by hot glu­ing a Scrab­ble-tile ini­tial to the cen­ter of a 1½" cir­cle cut from card stock or scrap­book pa­per. Punch a small hole in the top of the pa­per cir­cle, thread the tag onto a short beaded chain with a clo­sure, and fas­ten it to the han­dle. Fill the boxes with an as­sort­ment of sweet and sa­vory snacks, a deck of cards and a for­tune cookie for good luck!
