I love this idea! You can get the votives at any dollar store or craft store, and you can reuse them by swapping out the ribbon and flower(s) for a sprig of holly and christmas ribbon, an autumn leaf or pinecone and pretty fall colored ribbon, theres so much you can do with this idea! Very versitile. I made these for my sisters wedding. Hers was beach themed (got married on the beach) so I used the white tissue paper, blue ribbon, a couple small flowers to compliment her bouquet, and instead of the button in the middle of the bow, I glued a pretty tan colored sea shell. I placed these votives on white saucers filled with sand.
