Introduction: Wedding Favour Boxes

I was given some fabric covered card and I thought I could make little boxes out of it, to hold sugared almonds or other sweets or cakes, as wedding favours.

This is the low-tech version which anyone can make! If you had access to a laser cutter you could make a high tech version along the same lines.

Step 1: What You Need

Fabric covered card or other decorative card
Craft knife
Cutting mat
Glue - I used Copydex
Glue spreader
Paper clips

Step 2: Cut Out the Net for the Box

Decide on the dimensions of the box you want and draw the net on your card. I made a box 7 cm by 4 cm by 4 cm.

Cut out the net using a craft knife and a ruler. Score the fold lines.

Step 3: Assemble the Box

Fold the flaps in and glue the sides together, using paper clips to hold in place.

Step 4: The Finished Box

Fill your boxes with sugared almonds or whatever you choose. Tie ribbon round the box to hold the lid closed.

You could use the same idea to make boxes for individual cupcakes.
