A Fun Favor Box and FREE Cutting File!

Hi friends! Today I have a fun favor box that you can set out on your guest’s plate this Holiday! I did it in Christmas colors but you can whip these up in fall colors for Thanksgiving too!

I was going to snap a photo of my hand-drawn template but it was pretty messy so I made a free downloadable SVG file so you can die cut it in your electronic die cutter. Alternately you can print the picture below any size you like but it is designed to fit a 8.5″x11″ sheet of cardstock. I included the mats on the templates too.

Of course you can just watch the video below and follow along with your scoring board and scissors and do it that way too. I love to give you options!

Supplies (From Rubber Stamp Tapestry)

Directions:

  1. Start with a piece of cardstock cut to 8″x7″. On the 8″ side score the cardstock at 2″ and 6″, this will give you a 2″, 4″ and 2″ section. Then on the 7″ side score at 2″ and 4″ to give you a 2″, 2″ and 3″ section. Cut out the corners leaving tabs attached to the two side pieces for assembly.
  2. From the scraps of cardstock cut two 1.5″ squares, a 1.5″x3.5″ rectangle and a 2.5″x3.5″ rectangle. Round all of these corners with a 1/4 corner rounder. Round the top back of the box with a 1/2″ corner rounder. I used a Corner Chomper from We R Memory Keepers
  3. Ink the box with a blending brush and red ink. Stamp holly and berries on the rounded panels and ink edges in green. Adhere side panels to the box and then assemble the box with strong double-sided tape. Lastly adhere the back panel.

I hope you found this tutorial useful and you enjoy the free template and SVG file. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Fun Favors and a Freebie!

I have been getting ready for my daughters’ birthday party all week and today I want to share the favor boxes and cupcake wrapper I made. I used the Pretty Favor SVG and the Alice ATC collage sheet sets which are both 30% off thru Friday along with everything else at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

I cut the favor box, banner and cupcake wrapper with my cricut, to see the entire banner please check out yesterdays post.

The favor boxes were cut with my Cricut MAchine and SCAL software (on sale $15 off!) using the SVG file in the Pretty Favor Kit (printable versions are included in the kit too if you don’t have a cricut) and they were so quick to make!

The best thing about these boxes is that they cut quickly. I get two 4"x5"x1.5" boxes from a 12"x12" paper. A bit of hot glue and the box is done!

I simply cut out and assembled the boxes, added fringe or flowers made from crepe paper party streamers and images from the Alice ATC collage sheet kit. This project qualifies for the following challenges: Crafty calendar (blue and flowers-the gift bag in the tip photo),   Our Creative Corner6 (fun with folds-folded, pleated, fringed crepe paper), Paper Take Weekly (inspiration-top photo), Pocket Full of Poises (flowers), Practical Scrappers (buttons), Scrappekammeret and Southern  Girls Challenge (anything goes), Scrappy Frogs (make your own flowers-on the gift bags in the 2nd photo)

When the kids got home from school I let them fill the boxes with candy and favors!

Here is a look at the kits I used:
