When we have dinner guest I love to have little party favors on each plate.  I found the most clever tool for making these favor boxes.  You can make them in any length using any pretty cardstock.

I am excited I can match the paper to any theme or occasion.  These will be perfect for the Fourth of July!

How to make favor boxes

Cut paper 7 inches wide by the length you want the box to be.  My paper was 7″ X 5″. For reference each end uses about an inch so add desired size to hold candy and add 2 inches.  I wanted the part to hold candy to be three inches.

Slide the paper over so it fits along the raised diamond and make the second punch.
