My mother made these about 13 years ago from 2 of my brothers for the "dates" to a middle school Valentine's Day dance. Years later one of my brothers asked her to make a dozen for his Jr. Prom date and the girl just couldn't get over how unique and wonderful it was.

My daughter used them for wedding favors. The guests loved them done in her wedding colors!
