We’re all for DIY projects that do double duty. If you’re going to take the time to make them, they might as well serve more than one purpose, right? These geometric treat boxes are great as a seating chart that doubles as favors, and your guests will never guess that are waiting for them inside these little pyramids!

DIY Geometric Seating Chart

What you’ll need:


3d Paper Punch
Cardstock
Bone Folder
Patterned Vellum
Patterned Paper
1/8″ Double Sided Tape
Fishing Line

With the help of this geometric paper punch, cut away several sheets in different colors and patterns. We used orange, blush, neon yellow, aubergine, mossy green, coral, patterned vellum, and patterned paper (from an old Anthro shopping bag).

Using your bone folder, go ahead and fold all sides and tabs of your 3d geometric cutouts.

Add small strips of double sided tape on just 2 of the 3 closure tabs. You will want your little pyramids to be easily opened, so leaving one side without tape is key. Hershey’s Kisses fit snugly in the boxes so they hold up perfectly without the need of entirely gluing the box.

Cut your fishing line to length and make a knot on one end. Seal one end of your box and add a Hershey’s Kiss. Seal + fold your box with the fishing line in it. You can also thread the fishing line with the boxes closed later. Our strands had no more than 2 candy boxes each to emulate easy guest access. The knot on your fishing line holds the box in place on the strand, so you will see a little knot at the bottom of each box. We made a knot just once, so one can pull the box off the strands with no effort and no strain on the system.

Add little flags with names and table numbers folded in half and secure them with the help of double sided tape.

We used a small piece of chicken wire and placed the strands in a rectangle-ish shape and suspended from the ceiling. If that is not possible at your venue, you can alternatively use a photo backdrop kit to hang the wire.
