Happy Thursday everyone! Today I am here to share a tutorial on how to made some super sweet favor boxes for any special occasion. We have our engagement party coming up soon so I decided to make these favor boxes using the fantastic papers from the Teresa Collins Wanderlust collection and my Xyron Adhesives. Although these are "travel" themed papers- some of the Foiled pieces are so elegant I decided to "think outside the box" and use them for this project.
Box with lid open.
Front of Box
Xyron Creative Station, Xyron 9” Permanent Adhesive Cartridge, Xyron Mega Runner
Other Products Used:
Teresa Collins Wanderlust Papers-Plus Foiled Paper, Sizzix Little Sizzles Matboard Black 6x13, Sizzix Box #1 Bigz XL die, Tim Holtz Vagabond, Ranger Queen’s Gold Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, Congratulations Stamp, Washi Tape, Fiskars Paper Trimmer
Step by Step Directions
Cut out from the black Sizzix mat board, using the Sizzix Bigz Box die 2 of the larger box pieces.
Fold each box piece on the score lines.
Using the Xyron Mega Runner apply adhesive to the tab portions of each box piece, leaving one tab without adhesive for the top opening.
Assemble the 2 box pieces together via the tabs, press and hold to ensure a secure fit.
Cut the Teresa Collins Plus Foil paper into 2.5” x 2.5” cubes with a paper trimmer (6 for each box).
Run the squares through the Xyron Creative Station loaded with the 9” adhesive cartridge Repeat until all pieces have adhesive on the backside.
Carefully adhere each piece to one side of the assembled box-ensuring the line up the paper with the edges.
Apply small width Washi Tape to each seam of the box and onto the front lip.
Stamp the congratulations stamp in Versamark Ink and emboss with gold embossing powder.
Cut out the Congratuations sentiment using an appropriate size circle die but running it through a die cut machine.
Apply adhesive to the back of the circle with the Xyron Mega Runner and adhere to front of favor box.
Add heart embellishments and bow to top of completed box.
Tip: To ensure good coverage of adhesive burnish the squares after running through the Xyron and before removing the protective liner and adhering them to the box.
Thanks for joining me today and I sure hope you try out this fun project!
