Wired Ribbon Favor

I made these for a bridal shower and then again for a tea party, placing one on each persons plate. I normally put a couple of little chocolate bars in them, but since all of those have been snacked on, this favor holds a box of matches.
The only supplies needed are wired ribbon, small ribbon roses and a glue gun.

I cut my ribbon to 7 1/2 inches in length, and I use a piece of cardboard that is 2 3/8 inces in width as a guide for wrapping the ribbon around. I start by ffolding about 1/4 inch ribbon over the edge of the cardboard.

Wrap the ribbon around the cardboard one complete rotation. Fold the tail end in half, then fold the front flap over.

Slide the piece of cardboard out.

Open the ribbon and glue up the two sides that will make the sides of the packet.

Fold the front flap down and sttach a ribbon rose.
