Hello there! It’s Deanna, event designer and editor of Mirabelle Creations, again! I’m so happy to be back here at The Celebration Shoppe, sharing an easy party favor packaging idea. I recently co-hosted a Going Away party for a friend who was moving out of state. For party favors, I decided to package the favors like little moving boxes.
The moving boxes were filled with a packet of Forget-Me-Not seeds and homemade dark chocolate cashew bark. Additionally, a sweet card was added to the box, which read, “Flowers make the world colorful, bright and fun, just like Will & Andrea. Think fondly of them as these bloom.” The Forget-Me-Not seeds were a great favor for our Going Away party because they are both inexpensive and sentimental!
And if you have a college student heading back, these little boxes would be a creative way to wrap up a special little farewell gift!
What you’ll need:
- 4x4x4 cupcake box or other small box
- roll of craft paper
- 8×11 shipping label
- favor of your choice
And the simple how-to:
I started with 4x4x4 cupcake boxes that I ordered from an online bakery packaging supply store (my resource). It’s my favorite way to package party favors so I ordered a case of 100 boxes! But you can also find them at your local craft store in smaller quantities.
- Fold the boxes and fill with the favor of your choice.
- Wrap the cupcake box with the craft paper, just like you would gift wrap a present.
- Using a word processing program, print moving phrases, such as “This Side Up,” “Fragile,” and “Handle with Care,” onto the 8×11 shipping label. Cut out the labels and attach to the outside of the boxes.
As always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!
