DIY Flower Favour Box



We came across this great tutorial on Once Wed. You can create these gorgeous favour boxes to match your wedding theme and colour. 

Materials
• Card stock box cut-out. Download the template here and follow the instructions on the template sheet.
• Assortment of paper flowers with wired stems in complementary colours (from your local craft store).
• Pen 
• Skeleton leaves, available at craft stores, in the scrapbooking/paper crafting section
• Pin
• Strip of plain white paper, several inches wide
• Bone folder
• Scissors
• Length of  wired ribbon
• Glue stick
• Decorative edge punch
Instructions 
1. Using a bone folder and ruler score and fold box cut-out (use the printed template as a reference).
2. Glue tabs to sides starting with the bottom of the box.
3. If necessary use the bone folder to apply pressure to tabs as the glue adheres and dries.
4. Gather a small bunch of paper flowers, forming them into a dome-like arrangement.
Secure with a small piece of wire (you can trim a piece from one of the stems).
5. Trim stems to desired length – remember they’ll be inserted into the box, so they should be relatively short depending on what you want to put inside the box. Using wired ribbon, wrap stems to completely conceal them.
6. Fasten ribbon with pin.
7. Punch along the edges of the strip of plain white paper, and write desired message or name of recipient down the center. 
8. Fold top flaps of box as shown.
9. Insert bouquet into opening in box, and affix the white paper banner using a glue stick.
