To make your own 4th of July Favor Box, you'll need these supplies:

4th of July Favor Box

Open the 4th of July Favor Box project in Design Space. If you want to make it exactly how it is shown here in the tutorial, you can click "Make It" to take you directly to the cutting process. If you'd like to make adjustments, you need to click "Customize". Once in the canvas, you can easily make edits to colors and image sizes.

Along with your regular Fine Point Blade, you'll also need a tool to score the paper. This will help you to get perfect folds to make your boxes look more professional. You can use either the Cricut Scoring Wheel Tip + Drive Housing or Cricut Scoring Stylus with the Cricut Maker. The stylus works for average score lines, where the scoring wheel will give you extra-deep score lines instead.

*If you're using the Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker machines, you can subscribe to Cricut Access to get instant access to 75,000+ images, fonts, and projects for endless possibilities! That subscription also gives you 50% off digital fonts, images, and cartridges in Design Space and 10% off all physical purchases on the Cricut website!

I cut the box template out of red Shimmer Paper, the band out of blue patterned Cricut Deluxe Paper, and the tag pieces out of silver Sparkle Paper, white Cardstock, and black Glitter Cardstock.

Start assembling the favor box by folding along all of the score lines. Then, attach the bottom parts of the box template pieces together using tape runner or glue. Let it dry or set completely.

Add more tape or glue to the side tabs of the favor box. Press the sides together and hold in place until the glue or tape sets. My glue was taking a little longer to dry, so I held the sides in place with clothespins.

After the box is assembled and holding together, wrap the band piece around the box and secure the ends together with glue or tape.

To make the tag, glue the "Let Freedom Ring" words to the front of the cardstock circle. Don't want to mess with glue? Another great option is using glitter vinyl and place it on the cardstock like you would use a sticker. Easy peasy!

Place the cardstock circle on the front of the silver Sparkle Paper medallion and stick it down well with glue or tape.

Lastly, secure the tag to the front of the favor box with glue dots or other adhesive. Repeat as necessary for all of your party guests.

Fill up the favor boxes with sparklers, poppers, patriotic-themed surprises, and red, white, and blue  treats for your guests to enjoy throughout the night!

How do you celebrate the 4th of July?

  1. These are seriously so cute! I usually stick to cutting vinyl with my cutter, but I clearly need to venture out and try more paper projects.
