Hospital Favors

My husband is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan since forever.  Thus, in our household, we are all Steelers fans.  I thought it would be so fitting to have hospital favors with the Steelers theme, since Nate, of course, will be a Steelers fan, too.  These are favors we passed out to friends and family who visited Nate and I in the hospital.  The Sees Candies Little Pops were perfect because their packaging is in gold, and the lettering looks like it’s black, but I really think it’s dark brown.

Accessories: 1-1/4″ Circle Punch, 1-3/8″ Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Cello Bags, Stampin’ Dimensionals
