Wedding favour boxes or just fun little gift boxes

This is a really cool make. It is not too difficult and really I have found people just love the look of them. Also, unlike a conventional little gift box, these pyramid boxes actually open out completely to reveal their contents.

Ideal for small token gifts for any occasion, not just weddings, these pyramid boxes are brilliant.

No gluing, just cutting and scoring where to fold. Then you can quickly just fold and tie them in the pyramid shape.

Obviously change up the colour, size and design to customise your wedding favour boxes. Even leave secret, personalised messages on the inside.

Happy making.

Thing you will need:

  • Basic paper craft tools
  • Purple card, 15cm square or 6inches square
  • Dark purple card, 5cm square or 2inches square
  • Heart paper punch 2.5cm or 1 inch
  • Tiny circle punch or needle tool
  • Ribbon to finish

How To Make A Favour Box

Step One

Create the template as above, of a square surrounded by triangles. Add tabs to the edges of the triangles. The dotted lines are the lines where we ill fold in. If you have a piece of scrap card or an old cereal box for example, you can make a template. Then use that template to trace around for speedier production. You can then keep that template for use on later projects.

Once you get more experienced in making the pyramid wedding favour boxes, you won't need to mark out the shape on the purple card. Just simply trace your template. Cut out the shape and fold into the box shape.

A Simple Favour Box That Looks Amazing

Step Two

Use scissors or a craft knife to cut out the box shape. The neater you cut out the shape, the neater the end box will look. For best result use a craft knife, metal ruler and a cutting mat.

When using a craft knife, it is always best to press the rule on the good side of the line and cut with the scrap piece of card exposed. This way if you slip, you will always just slip into the part you were discarding anyway. So you can readjust and save this piece. If you were cutting the other way around, you may slip into the piece of the card you wanted to keep and the whole thing would be ruined.

Step Three

With a scoring tool, or something that is sharp but blunt, score along the dotted lines. This side will be the inside. If you do not score first, when you go to bend, your lines will not be where you wanted them to be.

When you get more experienced, you will not need to mark the inside of the card and will be able to score the tabs from experience. We want the tabs because it makes the finished wedding favour boxes look more professional. Also you find the folded tabs keep the edges straighter and almost reinforced. And the contents more hidden and secure.

Your wedding favour boxes are coming along nicely and basically finished already. How easy was that?

Start The Assemble Of The Box For The Wedding Or Party Favours

Step Four

With all the tabs of your wedding favour boxes folded inwards, use a hole punch at the point of each triangle. If you do not have a hole punch you can use a thicker needle and wiggle it to create a larger hole. Or poke with a sharp pencil, although this doesn't look as neat as the other methods.

How To Close Our Wedding Boxes

Step Five

Now we can test the wedding favour boxes, by threading a ribbon through all the holes and gently bring the points of the triangle up and together. Tighten the ribbon to secure the box. Tuck all the tabs into the inside.

Now we know the effect we are aiming for, we can finally complete the wedding favour boxes.

Some Final Box Details, Maybe Add A Name

Step Six

To finish this design we can use the paper punch to punch out some heart shapes from the darker purple card. Then use a cocktail stick to apply a small amount of glue to the back of the hearts and stick them onto the front of the wedding gift boxes.

If you do not have a heart shaped punch, you can of course, simply cut out a heart shape with some scissors. However, if you have a lot of boxes to make, a paper punch is a real time-saver.
