Fancy Favor Boxes

These boxes were so much fun and so easy to make! And so fast too! I can just image these filled with candy as wonderful party favors or even wedding favors.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Elements of Style

Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Fancy Favors Die, Whisper White Organza ribbon

I stamped the cardstock with coordinating ink using the swirls from Baroque Motifs several times across the center of the cardstock. One box was made with Bashful Blue cardstock and Bashful Blue ink. The other box was made with textured Old Olive cardstock and Old Olive ink.

Then the Big Shot was used with the Fancy Favors die. This wonderful die cuts and scores at the same time! So all you have to do is fold on the score lines and adhere the bottom together with some sticky strip.

I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch two 3/16" holes in the center of the front and back of the box. I stamped the "For You" from Elements of Style in Night of Navy for the blue box and Early Espresso for the green box on a scrap piece of Whipser White cardstock. Then the Curly Label punch was used to punch out the sentiment and the Crop-A-Dile was used to punch a hole in the top of the label.

Whisper White Organza ribbon was threaded through the holes in the box and on the label and then the ribbon was tied into a bow. That was really it! So super quick and fun! You could easily mass produce boxes like these!

Come back tomorrow to see a pretty Elegant Eggplant card!
