Wedding Favour Boxes - Share it on a Sunday

 Hi Everyone,

Today's theme for Share it on a Sunday is 'Wedding' and I have made some Wedding Favour boxes which will easily hold the traditional sugared almonds or a chocolate and are quick and easy to make.  I've made a couple of versions to show how easily adapted to different colour schemes and designer series papers it is.  The idea came from a project I saw by The Paper Pixie, a US Stampin' Up Demonstrator.  Let me show you how I made mine.


Basic box

1 piece of card stock 5" x 6 1/2" (I used very vanilla for one and gold foil for the other)
Tear n Tape/Seal +
Simply scored
Bone folder
Detailed Trio Punch


Very Vanilla one
Gold embossing powder
Heat Tool
Forever Blossoms stamp set
Scrap of pale papaya open weave ribbon
Mini glue dots
DSP version
2 x 1 3/8" x 1 7/8"
2 x 7/8" x 1 7/8"
Velcro dot


On the short side, score the card stock at 1 1/2" from either end.

On the long side, score at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2", 5 1/2" and make a tick mark at 2 1/4" on both sides, you need to flip it over to do the second one which will be on the inside of the card stock but it doesn't matter.

Fold and burnish the score lines and cut as per the template, then add the diagonal score lines from the tick marks to the corners of the line below as shown.  Round the corners on the piece that will be the lid flap.

For the very vanilla version

Stamp the design on the piece that will be the front of the box with Versamark, sprinkle with embossing powder and set with the heat tool.

For the dsp version

Add the dsp to the front, back, lid and flap.

Both versions

Add tear n tape or Seal + to the side flaps and bring the folds up to the cut edges on the back and the front to make up the box.

You can either tuck the lid flap in or have it on the front and fasten with a velcro dot, whichever you like the best.  For the vanilla one, I have added a small bow to the top with a mini glue dot. The dsp one, I thought I would leave as it was made with gold foil and has gold in the pattern, I thought anything else would be too much.

Once you have the basic shape, you can swap and change these about to make endless versions for all occasions.

I hope that you like my little Wedding favour box and will give it a try.  Please pop over and see what Donna and Victoria have made this week.
