Thank You favors

Greetings!   I have the perfect little favor boxes you could hand out to friends and family when you want to give them a little "thanks"!  The Pure Bliss Collection by GCD Studios is so yummy- like candy- why not fill the boxes with chocolates?!?  The Pure Bliss Collection has some great floral patterns and soft muted colors as well....you can use this collection for anything from baby to sister to mom projects, etc. And of course, you can make favor boxes too!

 
 
They are super easy to make.
Let me show you how!
1.   Cut a piece of paper 11" long x 6" wide.
Starting at the left hand side, score it at 4.5" and then again at ANOTHER 2" (which is 6.5" total from left side)
 
 
2.  Fold up the paper into the favor box form and punch the top edge with a scalloped border punch.
Trim the paper to about 5" wide now- trimming off the excess scallops so that a pretty edge remains (no half scallops, etc.)
 
3.  Score underneath the scallop border about 1".  You will want to do this for both scalloped edges. Once you fold up the favor box, it gives you a place to secure the plastic packaging that holds your candies.  Then fold up your box, adhere closed, and decorate as desired.  Easy!


Glad you could join me today!
Have a good day!
