DIY Geometric Favor Boxes

DIY Projects

We can barely contain our excitement to share our newest DIY project with you all! The ladies from HEYLOOK sent over these incredible geometric faceted favor boxes (polyhedron), perfect for a display table of their own or for use as place cards at each guest’s seat! Without further ado, here’s how to get started:

Instructions:

Print this template onto thin cardboard stock or thick paper in the colors of your choice. We chose a set of strong colors, but these would also look super-cute in pastels or in gold, silver and/or bronze.

Cut out along the straight lines, then fold along the dotted lines. Make sure you crease all folds into the same direction: over the dotted lines, so these will be inside the box.

Try to assemble the box without gluing it first, so you can see which sides go where. The important sides to mark are the lid and the fold-over side (this is the last side to glue). You could mark those parts with a pencil line or a little piece of masking tape that you can remove in the end.

Now you can start to assemble the boxes with paper glue. Fold the last assembly piece (the one before the lid piece) into the box and fix with glue.

Cut out small strips of paper and add texts. We hand-wrote ours, but of course you can also print out some in a font of your choice. Attach strips to lids with glue as shown in the picture.

Now your boxes are ready to be filled with goodies. If you use heavy or breakable favors, add some thin strips of tissue paper to pad the boxes.

    Hey, loving these, but any idea why the Pinterest’s Pin It button isn’t working? Or is it just me?

    I can totally understand your excitement. This is original, bright and colourful and really looks easy to make (if you like crafting). Came across this idea on Pinterest and have shared it on my Giftwrapping board. Of course with the link to your website.

    Kind regards,
    Caroline

    I simply LOVE these!!! But every time I print the template, the dotted parts don’t show! So I don’t know where to fold them! Help! Is there a button I should press before printing?

    I love these boxes and am so thankful that you shared the template, however, every time I try to print them it crashes. I have adobe so that is not the problem and I even tried to save off the document and print it but still it won’t work. Any tips?

      How about doing a screenshot off the PDF and printing the image? You could even adjust the size of the template for a bigger/smaller box that way.

    What kind of paper are you using to make them? They are absolutely adorable btw
