When planning a budget-friendly party, I like to challenge myself to think outside the box. Whether I’m shopping for party supplies around my house, online or locally, I try to think of how I can use a party supply in more than one way.
I’m throwing out a challenge to you today to think outside the favor box. If you didn’t already know, I’m a huge fan of favor boxes. Truth—I actually get lost in our shop sometimes dreaming about how I could use a favor box in a different way for a party. I’m weird.
Today, I’m sharing how you can to turn any favor box into a cute party decoration!
- Frozen Pop Favor Box Templates
- Twine, Cord, Yarn or Floss
- Scoring Tool, Bone Folder or Inkless Pen and Ruler
- Hole Punch
- Craft Needle
Step 1: Purchase, download and print the template.
Step 2: Cut along the solid lines.
Step 3: Score and fold along the dotted lines.
Step 4: Punch holes on either side of each frozen pop.
Step 5: Assemble the box.
HANK’S HINT: If the favor box is already assembled, use a paper piercer or sharp needle/pin to make the holes for the hanger—see photo below. Insert a rigid ruler against the inside of the box to keep the box from bending when making the holes.
Step 6: Thread twine, cord, yarn or floss through the holes of each frozen pop using the craft needle.
HANK’S HINT: No craft needle? Tape the twine to a wooden skewer as seen in Step 7 of this tutorial.
Step 7: Hang your garland and TA-DA!
NOTE: If you plan to put goodies into the boxes, I suggest sealing the box shut with a clear sticker before hanging.
Now that you know the technique, you can turn any favor box into a fun garland! If you can’t punch a hole in the box, attach it to the hanger with a clothespin or binder clip. The possibilities are endless!
