Can you believe it is already almost mid March 2012? Well, we are fast approaching St. Patrick’s Day and I don’t like to leave any holiday uncelebrated. Whether you are throwing a party or just want to pass out a little something to your friends and family these DIY 2 inch favor boxes will do the trick.
YOU WILL NEED:
- A printer
- Heavy Card Stock
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Glue dots or double sided tape
- Candy of choice for filling
1. Download and Print.
For best results print on heavy white card stock.
2.Cut out along outer box lines
You can do this with scissors, I like to use a craft knife with my cutting mat and metal ruler for straight crisp edges.
3. Crease along all black lines
I like to put my cutting mat on an edge and bend along the edge of the ma, that way I can see were the lines are and I end up with straight crisp corners.
4. Using adhesive fold the to shape the box
Glue (scrapbooking) dots are amazing. I highly recommend using them for all sorts of crafts and DIY. Simply place a dot were needed to keep the box together. You can also use double sided tape.
5. Fill with treats
Use you favorite treats, you can even put a little gift and tissue paper in the box if you don’t want to use candy.
6. Close and give away
For added security you can put a sticker to seal the top closed. Give away as party favors or just pass them out to friends. These are great for kids to take to school to pass out to their friends.

So, as my first post I guess I will start by introducing myself. My name is Robyn and I am a wife and a stay at home mom of three boys. Donovan is 5, Cameron is 2 and Jestin is 4 months. Although I was born and raised in San Diego, California, in 2010 my husband and I packed up and moved to his hometown Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK. I have been here for a little over 1 year now and during the last year we have been through a lot and we welcomed a newest addition, Jestin, to our family. I don’t know if it was the change in location or the pregnancy, but I really started getting back into my hobbies. This is when I noticed that I like doing a lot and there is nowhere near enough time in the day to do much of anything now that I have my monsters filling my day and to p top it all off I am starting my own estore http://www.etsy.com/shop/BraikDesign. So I starting trying to do one thing at a time. But then when I am in the middle of doing one thing another holiday or event comes up and I want to do something for that. I feel very scatter brained all the time and am hoping that by doing this blog I will be able to organize my crafting ventures and share with the world some of my creations. So everyone is welcome, I will be posting a little bit of everything crafty. Including but not limited to baking, crochet, kids crafts, digital design, DIY, and crafting on a budget, and much much more.
