Fancy Favor Box

Here is a super cute box that is super easy to put together. This was the 3D item at the Make & Take this month. This box was made using the Fancy Favor Box Die. Take a look:

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Cute By The Inch
Cardstock: Pacific Point Textured, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Fancy Favor Box Die, Curly Label Punch, Paper Snips, Whisper White Organza ribbon, Hobby Blade,  1/2" Circle Punch

I started off with a 5 3/4" x 12" piece of Pacific Point Textured cardstock. I ran this through the Big Shot on the Fancy Favor Box Die. This wonderful die not only cuts out your shape but also adds all the score lines you need on the box! The box front was stamped with thw swirls from Baroque Motifs in Not Quite Navy ink. Sticky Strip was used on the side flap and one bottom flap to form the box. Adhere the side flap first and then fold the bottom flaps down and adhere the last bottom flap.

The 1/2" Circle Punch was used to punch holes at the top on both the front and back of the box. This is a hole for the ribbon to go through to tie the box closed, although the box would look just a cute left open. The image from Cute By The Inch was stamped in Not Quite Navy ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The square was cut out with paper snips and adhered to a scrap of the Pacific Point Textured cardstock and the Paper Snips were used again to cut a mat around the Whisper White square.

The Curly Label Punch was used to punch a label out of a scrap of Not Quite Navy cardstock. The layered squares were adhered to the bottom of the Not Quite Navy curly label. The Hobby Blade was used to cut a slit near the top of the curly label for the ribbon to slide through. Slide one end of the ribbon through the slot in the curly label and then through the holes in the box. Tie the ribbon into a bow on top of the box and trim the ribbon ends. Thats it!

These adorable little boxes would be easy to make in bulk for party favors and you can dress them up however you like! Thanks for stopping by!
