Blue Party Favor Boxes

I found a very cute printable Blue box template at Shala’s website Don’t Eat the Paste only recently.

I hadn’t come across her site before and I wish I had seen it earlier 🙂

Coming back to my boxes, I chose the circle dot printable 2″ box for the party favors.

Step 1: Print the boxes

I downloaded the image and took it to the xerox shop near my house. They had 220 gsm paper so I got the boxes printed out on that. The first color print is 15Rs and the following ones are 10Rs each. I took 15 prints to be on the safer side (though we expected only 11 people to come to the bridal shower.)

Step 2: Cut the box templates and fold

I spent two evenings after work cutting out the boxes using a combination of a Xacto knife blade, huge scissors and nail scissors 🙂 {I get bored with my tools I suppose 😉 }

Step 3: Glue the box flaps

The paper has a shiny side and a dull side – the pattern is printed on the shiny side so I had to use Fevicol to stick it properly. Ordinary glue sticks made the paper slip and slide here and there!

Step 4: Add a finishing touch

After making the box, I stuck a single blue flower sticker from Pie Lane on the top of each box. I don’t know the price as I got it as a kit from Kavitha. You can read more about it here.

Total Expense Breakdown

Total Expense = Approximately 200 Rs for 15 boxes.

15 Printouts = 155 Rs

1 tube Fevicol = 20 Rs (already in stash)

15 Pie Lane Flower Stickers (I don’t know the price sorry.)
