  • Paper trimmer, or metal ruler and craft knife
  • Black ink pad

First, you'll need to locate a place that makes rubber stamps. Most office-supply stores provide this service, as do many online vendors. To cut down on smudging, ask for the raised area of the stamp to be made twice as high as normal.

Download our PDF of the two ship-stamp designs, and save it to a disk. Send the file to your stamp maker.

To make the favors, first cut strips of white paper to the size needed to wrap around the slide box, and overlap in the back by about 1/2 inch. Stamp the ship design onto the strips of paper.

Fill the slide boxes with candy and close them. Wrap each box with the paper sleeve bearing the ship stamp, and secure it in the back with double-sided tape.
