Step 5: Printing Box Templates

  • Two box templates will fit on a standard 8.5x11 sheet of paper
  • For optimum results, use the 'best' setting on your printer and highest quality paper
  • Colors may vary depending on your computer screen settings
  • Quantity will depend on how many boxes you plan to make
  • Use a paper cutter (or scissors) cut out the boxes
  • Notice that the temples with faces are slightly off center. This is to ensure the faces are centered once the favor boxes are folded

Step 6: Box Assembly

  • Place a strip of double-sided tape along the front left side of the printed square
  • Roll the wrapper over to form a cylindrical tube and gently press together

Step 7: Box Assembly Continued

  • With the face facing to the front, place a small piece of double-sided tape to the inside of the top end of the box tube
  • Seal that end of the box by gently pressing together

Step 8: Filling Your Favor Boxes

  • Fill your favor box with small treats; M&Ms, Skittles or Candy Corn ... etc ....
  • While holding the sealed end, place a small piece of double-sided tape to the open end of the tube and seal by gently pressing together
  • Make sure this closure is perpendicular to the opposite end forming a triangular shape

Step 9: Enjoy
