Favor Boxes

Favor Boxes can be used for all manner of things and not just kept for weddings

These are a very pretty way to add decoration to your table.

Use the boxes to add a gift for your Bridesmaids, or even pieces of cake for your guests to take home with them for later.

There are many different ways to make them.

In the picture there are three ideas for you to try.

The white box with the single pink Rose (left) is from the

Wedding Stationery Set.

Creating Favor Boxes

It is made following the instructions for the Wedge Box.

The Pink Rose patterned paper (right) is rolled to create the Cream Carton and you can alter the size of this box to better suit your individual requirements.

But the other box, with the pink bow on the top, is the one featured here.

To make this you will need an A4 card (21 x 29.5 cms)to suit the colour scheme.

Making Favor boxes

Step 1

Lay the card flat and it will need to be trimmed to measure
21 x 28 cms
and trim off the excess.

Step 2

Once this is done you will mark the card, lightly at
4, 12,16 and 24 cms
on the long edges.

Marking out for favor boxes

Step 3

Then down the short edges you will need to mark at
3 and 15 cms.

These are to lines you will score and fold along to make the box.

Step 4

Cut down all the folds from the top down to the 15cms line, and from the bottom to the 3cms line.

Then from one of the sides remove the top and bottom panels as shown in the photograph.

Step 5

Take out two circles with a punch on each of the 15cms panels to create the handle for the box,

Flip the card over and with some ink and a Blender I have inked all the edges.

Step 6

It is easier to decorate the box now while it is flat and you can add any Embellishments you have in your "stash"

I have made two smaller panels to fit the box from some patterned paper and added a silk flower and a pearl brad too.

Decorating the box

Step 7

Using some strong glue fold the box up and glue the outer edges together.

Fold in the four panels at the bottom and glue in place.

Step 8

Add your gift to the box when the glue is dry, and fold down the two outer panels at the top, but don't glue these as they will just keep the gift inside.

Step 9

And finally add the ribbon to keep the handle closed.

You can of course decorate yours any way you wish but I am sure you will be pleased with this easy idea for a Favor Box.
