Xyron & DCWV DIY Favor Boxes Project Stack

Hi there,

DCWV has some wonderful new project stacks that make creating more fun. The Project Stack line includes Stencils, Seasonal Wreaths, Cone Wreaths, Birds & Butterflies, Flowers, Roses, Mini Albums, and Favor Boxes.  Today, I am sharing one of the favor boxes that I created using the Favor Boxes DIY Project Stack and Xyron adhesive. Many box styles are included in the project stack. I chose to work with the cupcake favor box. Take a peek at my tutorial below.

Xyron: Mega Runner, Adhesive dots.
Chalk (Lime Pastel)
Hot Glue
Bone Folder
Binding Clips


Step 1:  Detach the favor box template from the DIY project stack and cut the pattern out along the "cut lines." Note: A template for each favor box type is included in the DIY project stack.


Step 2: Lay the pattern on cardstock. Secure with binding clips and cut cardstock in form of template. Note: The project stack comes with several patterns. I cut several patterns with the same template at the same time for future uses. You could also trace the template and cut the pattern out as well.

Step 3: Using a ruler and bone folder, score along "fold lines."

 Step 4: Using bone folder, form and define box.

Step 5: Using the Mega Runner, apply adhesive and secure box together.

 Step 6: Using chalk, distress the edges of the box.

 Step 7: Fill box with a cupcake or with treats. Note: I chose treats.
 Step 8: Close top of box. Note: If the pattern is cut properly, it should look like the picture shown.
 Step 9: Tie ribbon around box with ribbon and knot. Adhere frosted berries under ribbon.

Step 10: Using hot glue, adhere bow to box.

Step 11: Using Xyron adhesive dots, adhere flowers to box. Continue embellishing as desired.
