Damask Candles/Matches

So as you know we are getting married beside a swimming pool in the evening and we decided to decorate the pool by using floating candles and lily pads, well we thought it would be a cute idea to let our guests light a candle and place it in the pool...this is what I came up with...I bought plain match boxes 8 for $1 at Dollar Giant, floating candles, pack of 6 for $1 at Dollar Giant, glued damask wallpaper on each matchbox, attached candle with ribbon..and voila..still have more to do, the bin is nearly full...this would be a cute favor too I think...wish I had thought of it before I bought mine...oh well love the pool idea, and I think our guests will think it is a nice touch...let me know what you think!
