Wedding idea for favour boxes with embossed details and crystal and pearl

FAVOUR BOX

For each favour you will need:

Pearlised Ivory Favour Box  BUY
60cm of 25mm Ivory Satin Ribbon  BUY
1/2 sheet of Amelia Embossed Paper in Ivory  BUY
1 Sophia Small Embellishment  BUY

 

Other things you might need:

Tape Runner  BUY
Hot Melt Glue Gun  BUY

 

Instructions:

If you have chosen to use one of our blank favour boxes, assemble it and fill it with the items of your choice.  Put the lid on and you’re ready to go.

Measure your box and cut a piece of paper that is about 1cm larger than double the width and is long enough to wrap all the way around your box.  If you choose to use one of our favour boxes, you will need to cut a section of paper about 13cm wide x 21cm high.

Basically, if you know how to wrap a parcel, this will be a doddle.

Place your box face down in the centre of the paper.  Run a line of tape along one edge of the paper and wrap around until it covers the box and the paper is stuck together along one edge.

Turn the box to one of the sides that is currently open.  Pull the bottom of the paper up towards the top of the box and hold in place.  Fold in each side of the paper until it touches the box.  Make a crease along the paper so that you have a point that can be folded down and stuck in to place.

Repeat this process on the other open end.

Cut a length of ribbon long enough to wrap around the box with 2cm to spare.  Hold one end of the ribbon at the centre of the top of the box.  Wrap the ribbon around the the box and stick the loose end on top of the end that you are holding down.  Try not to spill any glue on to the backing paper.

Make a 6cm Dior bow.  For instructions on making a Dior Bow, use this video….

Use your glue gun to stick the dior bow in to place onto the ribbon at the top of the box.

Use your glue gun to stick the Sophia embellishment to the centre of the Dior Bow.
