Create elegant place-name boxes that double up as favours. Assemble the boxes according to the kit instructions. Add a metal label by pushing split pins through the holes at each end. Write the name of a guest on paper and slide it through the holes at each end. Write the name of the guest on paper and slide it under the label. Fill the box with sweets.
