DIRECTIONS:

THANKSGIVING FAVOR BOX:

(We used tones of brown, cream & gold) Paint box desired color. Cover lid top with scrapbook paper, ink edges and add small flowers. Glue narrow scrapbook paper strip around box side. Cut tag from cardstock. Embellish with narrow paper strips, number stickers, ribbon and small flowers.

CHRISTMAS PARTY FAVOR BOX:

(We used red, green & gold) Paint box desired color. Spray with satin varnish; allow to dry. Glue ribbon around lid edges. Glue gems to the top then seed beads in between gems. Wrap 26 gauge wire around box several times, twist ends to secure. String small beads on a length of wire, and form loops, adding a few beads to some loops. For loops with coil design, wrap wire for loop around skewer. Attach loops to wire wrap, coiling all loose tails. Make tag with layered cardstock cut to shape.

NEW YEAR'S PARTY FAVOR BOX:

(We used silver & black) Paint box desired color; allow to dry. Cut pinstripe paper to fit top of lid and sides of box, glue in place. Drybrush paint on box. Glue ribbon to lid edge. Thread wire through word beads several times, so bead is "framed" with wire. Curl tails into tight spirals. Thread the word beads on Bella Corda and wrap around box, positioning words on lid. Make tag and embellish with rhinestone brad.

WEDDING PARTY FAVOR BOX:

(We used pastel blue) Paint box desired color. When dry, coat box with glitter glue and dry. On 12" of 20 gauge wire, string all the crystal beads. Begin creating wire swirl, sliding on some crystals as the spiral grows to about 1" diameter. With other end of wire, reverse the swirl, continuing to add crystals, until you meet the first swirl. Tie a 12"x6" strip of tulle around box, trim ends. Over tulle, tie a bow with sheer ribbon, securing the tulle and wire swirls.
