Happy Monday! Laura here today to share with you how to create your own wedding favor boxes. These boxes can be easily customized to match your wedding colors. You can create them for a fraction of the cost of buying them premade. Plus, you can personalize them with any sentiment that fits your wedding theme!
Start by cutting your cardstock to 10 ½ x 8 inches. Align the longer edge to the top of the score board. Score the paper at 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 10 inches.
Rotate the paper 90 degrees and score at 2 and 6 inches. Use the score guide to line up one edge of your paper at an angle. Score an angled line coming down from each of the one-inch sections. Score the lines on one side, flip the paper over and do the other side, so you end up with two triangle shaped score lines at the bottom of the sides of the box.
You can see where to score the paper in the image below.
Cut off the pieces shown below using your scissors. You will trim off the top and bottom sections where you scored the half inch line. You will also cut off along the top score line, leaving only a 3 inch by 2-inch rectangle. Then, cut along the two-inch, 5 inch, and 7-inch score lines, just to the bottom horizontal line.
Fold along all the score lines and assemble your box using double sided adhesive, leaving the top flap open.
Use the Corner Chomper scallop edge punch to punch each corner of the top flap.
Fold the top flap into the inside of the box and use the Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes close to the each edge of the box.
Create a heart shaped embellishment using patterned paper and the clear cut heart punch.
Use the ampersand from the Rise & Shine embossing folders to emboss the shape onto the heart using the Evolution Advanced. I used a sanding block to distress the edges of the embossed “&” to make it stand out a little more.
Thread ribbon out through the holes in the back of the box and then in through the front flap holes. Attach the heart shape and tie the ribbon in a bow.
You can create these boxes in any color or design that fits your wedding theme. You can choose a different embossed accent for the heart shape or even add your monogram or names to the front of the bags using a stamp or a sticker. Then simply fill the bag with the treat of your choice.
