DIY Project: Kraft Favor Boxes
February 20, 2009
DIY Inspired

Today has just been a Do-It-Yourself kind of day! Starting with the fabulous Vanilla Favors that Kathleen of Twig & Thistle put together for us, followed by the incredibly chic centerpieces that Natasha designed. Topped off with the absolutely lovely real wedding of Mary-Kevin and Patrick! Such a fun day on SMP!

As a little added treat, I thought we could end the day with one last project...the adorable, kraft boxes with bakery twine that Mary-Kevin made for her wedding favors. She filled hers with Taffy, but cookies, chocolates, anything really would fit the bill.

Kraft Boxes from US Box Company

Wax Paper

Scalloped Edge Paper Cutter like this one

Bakers Twine from Raffit

White Tags from Staples (string removed)

Custom Stamp by Stamp & Sign, reads "sweets from the {insert your new last name}"

Chocolate Brown Ink Pad from Paper-Source (or other office retailer)


1. Using your scalloped scissors, cut the wax paper so that it fully lines the bottom interior of the boxes. Leave enough room to go up the back/front so that you can fold over the treats.

2. Place a handful of candy or other treat inside. Secure the box closed.

3. Stamp the tags using your custom stamp and chocolate ink. Allow ten minutes or so to dry.

3. Tie up the box like a present, using the baker's twine, slipping the stamped tag on just before you tie the bow or knot.
