I also have made these gold boxes and put
pretty tissue paper down inside then included some cloves and bay leaves
tied up in cheesecloth, several cinnamon sticks, a lemon, and an orange.
Tie the box up with gold ribbon. You have a potpourri mixture for the
recipient to use during the holidays to scent his/her home. They can
slice the lemon and orange and put them, along with the other
ingredients, into a pan of water to simmer on the stove. These pretty
gold boxes with potpourri ingredients can be used as favors for a
holiday party. Put one on each plate at the dinner table. They look
lovely and bring wonderful compliments as your guests go to the table!
