Do Me a Favor

My friend Jessica is having a baby girl and I offered to make the favors for the shower which was this past weekend. I happen to think candy is the perfect little thing for all the guests to take home after a party. It's a sweet little snack for later. So I scoured Duane Reade for candies that came in red or pink wrappers. (Sidenote: did you know you can buy a giant bag of Starburst that has only reds and pinks in it?! The future is here, my friends!) I divided up all the candies into plain glassine bags and folded them over. Taping them closed with Japanese masking tape and affixing a card I made on the computer and then printed and cut to size. These were hit and couldn't have been any easier to pull off. But I'm beginning to wonder if you could affix Japanese masking tape to a dead pigeon in a cute way and render it somehow press. Because that's a normal thing to wonder about.
