Favor-able Boxes!

A while ago I wrote about how I was having second thoughts about what we wanted to do for favors, but I’ve finally figured them out… and it all started with the boxes!

I spent a very long time researching what I wanted to do for the packaging of the favors, even before figuring out what would go in them. All I knew was that I wanted them all to coordinate, since I was going to do a Choose Your Own Favor table, a la Martha:


I found tons of cheap options, but they either didn’t go with our color scheme, or didn’t have three coordinating, but different containers. Until I found Bayleys Boxes! They have an amazing selection of different styles of boxes, and a wide variety of patterns, colors and textures. Although a bit more expensive than I was hoping for, I quickly ordered samples in textured brown of:

Large Bag Box ($1.17 each)

Large Square Box ($1.17 each)

And a Gable Box ($1.17 each)

To order a sample of 3 different boxes it was only $2.50, and I liked them so much that I ordered 51 of each (we only needed 40 of each, but you get a price break at 51, and I wanted a few extras in case I messed anything up).

These boxes all come flat, so you do have to fold them yourself, but it’s pretty easy. Here are some montages of me folding and assembling the boxes I got in the textured chocolate brown.

First up, the Bag Box:

The square box:

and the Gable Box (Which was the hardest of the boxes because I had to hole punch it before assembling it for the decorations, and the bottom didn’t seem to hold together as well as I’d have liked, so I had to add two strips of double sided tape to the bottom flaps):

Assembled favor boxes: check! But then I needed to decorate them of course, as well as nail down what to put in them, but I’ll save that for the next post.

Where did you find your containers for your favors?

    Isn’t double sided tape AWESOME!! We use it for xmas presents last year, but now I’m loving the pop up tape dispensers. Can’t wait to see those boxes in action!!

    Oh I can’t wait to see how you decorate the boxes! We did personalized beer labels, and while I had grand ideas of little brown bags, boxes, blah blah blah… we ended up with just the cute bottles and their labels!

    I love that you’re going to have three different kinds of boxes with different favors in each! Am I weird that I think the idea of assembling all of those boxes sounds like fun?

    I just checked out their site and I love the color options they have! I’ve been looking for OOT bags and I think these are perfect. I can’t wait to see what you put in them and how you dress them up!
