DIY the best marble favour boxes for all of your events ( wedding, bridal shower etc.)
I recently had my sister’s bridal shower and she had a marble theme. When I decided to do the favours for her I took to the internet in search of marble favour boxes how hard could it be right …. Wrong!
Though there is some option available they were asking astonishing rates for them. The quotes I was getting was around $300 for 70 boxes not including filling or tags. After seeing this and realizing that even at that price the boxes didn’t match her theme ( they were more grey ) I Decided to put my DIY skills to the test and my results were even better than I had hoped.
Since Marble is a big thing lately I decided I would share my DIY marble favour boxes with you guys! High-quality favours can also double as decor the look great along with a place setting and can really add to your event. I am big on the little touches when it comes to events so these cute marble favour boxes really add that finishing touch.
What you will need :
- White boxes with tops ( you can get the celebration boxes at Michaels for 9.99 per 20 boxes you will need at least 2 extra boxes) I got mine at michaels click here for more info
- Marble wrapping paper ( I got mine at chapters/indigo for $7.99 per roll I used 2 for 70 boxes and tags)
- Fillings of your choice ( chocolate, almonds, really whatever you like )
- Packs of white gift tags ( also from Michaels $5.99 for 25 or any colour you like)
- Gold thank you stickers or whichever colour you like (also from Michaels )
- Gold ribbon ( or any colour of your choosing )
- Roll adhesive ( make sure it’s permanent )
- Hole punch ( hand held is easiest)
How to make them! Step by step.
Step 1: Take one of the box tops and cut off the excess so it looks like this. This is why you need extra because you need this for tracing purposes to get a perfect fit.
Step 2: lay out the wrapping paper and on the white/bottom side trace out the amount you need for your favour tops.
Step 3: Take a tag ( again an extra one ) and repeat the process above to trace out a number of tags you need
Tip: I covered the edges of the tag with clear tape as with tracing large amounts it can start to lose its shape. You can also do this for the box top you use to trace but make sure it’s a snug fit.
Step 4: cut out all of your tag and box tops from the wrapping paper
Step 5: make your box bottoms and tops then put the bottoms aside.
Step 6: Take your wrapping paper tops and your roll adhesive and your box tops and put roll adhesive on the box side attach the larger side of the wrapping paper box top cut out then put roll adhesive on the top and smooth the wrapping paper on the top.
Step 7: next put roll adhesive on the opposite side of the box attaching the other side . for the other 2 sides use roll adhesive same as the other items but make sure to attack the little triangles to the box first and then cover with the small wrapping paper panel to cover the triangles. Repeat this process for all your box tops
Step 8: After all the marble paper is attached to the tops trip off any excess you see.
As a little extra, i covered the tags with paper too, you can skip this step and just use white tags or you can buy tags to suit your theme.
Step 9: Attach the marble wrapping paper tag cut outs to one side of your tags with the roll adhesive ( 1-2 lines should do the trick) and then trim off the excess.
Step 10: Use a hole punch to punch through the marble wrapping paper that has covered the hole in the tags.
Step 11: Attach the thank you stickers to the middle of the tags on the marble side.
Step 12: fill your boxes with your treats and then attach tags to the boxes with the ribbon.
Optional extra: I added a little poem with the bride and grooms names to the black under side of the tags. You can buy plain sheets of sticker paper and create a design on your computer and then print them out. a lot of the sticker paper packs come with website instructions that have templates to make it easy and painless.
You do no need to use sticker paper I am sure you could use regular paper and more roll adhesive but I found the sticker paper to be easier and faster because you just cut your design out and stick it on.
That’s it! You are done making the cutest marble favour boxes your guests will love!
