My daughter’s birthday was this past week and I’ve got her party coming up soon. I’ve been deep in the party planning throes for the past few weeks and one of the aspects of her party that I’m most excited about are the sweet party favors that have come together beautifully. The pretty DIY favor boxes are personalized to each girl who will be receiving them. They will be the perfect finishing touch to the soiree!
- Round Paper Mache Boxes with Photo Lid
- DecoArt Cherry Blosson Pink Acrylic Paint
- Foam Paint Brush
- Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
- Martha Stewart Crafts Lace Ribbon Trim
- Craft Scissors
- Photos of Each Recipient (Or you can use photos just of the birthday girl)
Step Two. Paint the outside of the box with the pink acrylic paint until you reach the desired coverage. If you like a more rustic look, one coat will work perfectly. I wanted a more opaque look, so I added three coats. Let the paint dry completely.
Step Five. When the paint is finished drying on the box, use the tacky glue to adhere the lace trim to the outside edge of the lid. I used a pea size drop of glue every one to two inches and smoothed out the glue as I went around. Trim the excess ribbon when you’ve glued it completely around the edge of the lid. You could also use printed washi tape to trim the edge of the lid.
