A wedding favor is a simple and beautiful way to say ‘’Thank you” to your guests. This is the reason why a pretty favor box for your gift is very important. This is to impress the guests and get them excited to open and see what is inside. Today, we are going to make a fascinating small favor box made from Stampin’ Up materials that won’t surely break your bank. If you are eager as I am, read on for instructions.
What you need:
- 7 3/4” x 3 5/8” white card stock
- Stampin’ Up ink pads (any color you like)
- Stampin’ Up punches (any design you like)
- Adhesive tape/glue
We do the stamping first. Grab the card stock and start imprinting your chosen design on it. Make sure to fill up the card stock with the design.
Place the cardstock on the scoring tool. Starting from the top left, score the card stock at 2 3/8”, 3 5/8”, 6 and 7 ¾”. Then, looking at the left side of your scoring tool, look for the 2 inch and mark it with your finger. Go back to the top side, measure about 3 inch and score it down until the 2-inch mark. Do the same with the 6 5/8”. Then, turn around the card stock that the score lines are at the right side. Score 1 ¼”.
Fold on the marks you created to finally make out your box. As you fold, you may notice 4 rectangles and one small rectangle. Get rid of the small one by cutting it off. Then, cut on those remaining 3 lines. Only on the LINES.
Grab the set of the framelits and choose the third and second to the smallest and grab two pieces of colored paper which complements your box. Place each framelit on each paper. Place them on the magnetic platform and get it through the Big Shot. This will cut the paper according to the shape and size of the framelit. Remove the paper and pop out the pieces.
Place the two paper over each other and fold in crosswise. Use glue or adhesive tape to secure the two papers in place.
You will start to assemble the cardstock to create a box. Bring back the cardstock and put adhesive on the skinny rectangle at one end and stick the other end on it. Then, work on those flaps to secure the bottom of the box.
Afterwards, turn it over and push both side inward and place the framelit papers on top.
Punch a hole at the middle of the framelit papers as well as on the box.
Grab your ribbon and cut a length and fold it in half. Insert the folded part into the hole and create a knot to secure it in place.
Apply adhesive on the back of the framelit papers and place it on the box. Insert the both ends of the ribbon into the hole of the framelit papers and tie a bow. Cut off the excess ribbon.
And you are finished! An adorable favor box that is easy to make and will surely delight your guests. If you like you can place sweet treats in it.
