Handmade favor boxes are a great way to add color and design to your dessert table and party décor. Here is a tutorial and template to make this cute little box for your next event or just for someone who is extra sweet!
This box is the same as the airplane favor I used on the “Love is in the Air” table. There I filled it with pretzels for an inexpensive thank you gift. This time I decided to give it an Irish flare for St. Patty’s Day and stuffed it full of golden Rolos.
To make this box you will need the following:
- Cardstock cut to 11 x 7.5 inches
- Tented Favor Box template
- Scoring device such as the Simply Scored by Stampin’ Up! or a straight edge and stylus tool (the dull side of a butter knife or sharpened dowel will work in a pinch)
- Straight edge and craft blade
- Strong liquid adhesive such as Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive
- Cellophane bag for goodies (approximately 4 x 6-inches)
- Hole Punch
Step 1: Score. Score the lines along the horizontal length of the cardstock on the 11-inch side according to the template.
Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees and score according to the template along the other side.
Step 2: Cut. Cut the box along the score lines following the designations on the template. It may be necessary to use a straight edge and craft knife to make clean cuts on some of the inner lines.
Step 3: Adhere. Apply adhesive to the front panel flaps.
Fold the flaps in to reinforce the front section and create a clean edge.
Add adhesive to the small side tab.
Wrap the cardstock around to form the box.
Fold under the lower flaps and adhere.
Step 4: Fill. Fill the cellophane bag with your choice of treats and seal with a stapler or tape.
Insert bag into box and staple the top closed to seal. The staple helps to keep the top of the box even as you decorate and tie the top.
Step 5: Decorate. Decorate the bag as you wish! Use the hole punch to create spaces for ribbon or twine to loop the top together.
Happy box making!
