artsy-fartsy mama: Thanksgiving Favor Boxes

Thanksgiving Favor Boxes

We are having a small Thanksgiving this year, so I wanted to make some favor boxes for everyone. Sounds simple enough, but with a little help from Silhouette, I think they turned out extraordinary! They also took less than 20 minutes to make, which really helps when there's so much to do around the holidays.

DIY Thanksgiving Favor Boxes at artsyfartsymama.com #Thanksgiving #favor #Silhouette

First, I opened Silhouette Studio and arranged two Pillow Box templates on an 8.5x11 inch paper (box measures 3.5" wide when folded) and cut the boxes out of white cardstock on the Cameo. Fold along the perforated lines and glue the edge with a glue stick.

Next, I typed up "Gobble Gobble" and arranged it to cut in one piece by playing with the line and character spacing. I cut the Gobble design on the Cameo out of Gold Premium Adhesive Vinyl.

Attach the Gobble to the pillow box on the left half of the box. Then, wrap some gold glitter tape all the way around the right half of the box. Add some candy or other favors to the box and close the edges (they shouldn't need tape, but you can add some if you want).

Place on your Thanksgiving table and enjoy!


If you're feeling lucky, you can enter to WIN a SILHOUETTE CAMEO!
