Yes, I said less than a quarter. Including candy. Which is good, because I ate all of the m&m's that I used making THIS project. Candy doesn't last long around my house.....just sayin.
I found these wedding favor boxes on the clearance shelf at Hobby Lobby. I loved the vector design on the front. The clear, heart-shaped cellophane top shows off the contents. Perfect for Valentines Day!
Really....a smokin deal. $3.49 divided by 25 makes them 13.6 cents a box. Even at full price they're only a quarter a piece. You might want to visit the wedding aisle once in a while at Hobby Lobby.
I have a cool ribbon punch. If you don't have one of these and you are a crafter, you might want to put one on your list! So easy!
Since the boxes come flat, they are so easy to punch. I punched out some slots and tied a cute pink ribbon bow on the top of this box. (I put the ribbon on the front in some, like the first pic.) I should mention that the boxes pop up in one quick step and no adhesive is required.
Fill the box with some candy from the Dollar Store. I used Sixlets in some and Conversation Hearts in others. I was thinking tic tacs, gum, jawbreakers or jellybeans would also be nice.
Cute right? So inexpensive and so easy! So I gave my first one away yesterday to my hairdresser, Kelly. He laughed at the heart that said "text me" and said they have actually improved the flavor since he was a kid!
He's awesome and he puts up with me politely every time I walk in his door with a picture and say, "Will my hair do this?" (Usually the answer is "no" as I have super thin, fine hair.) He'll be mad that I put hearts all over his picture.....but he really is a sweetie!
