We all have parties - birthdays, Christmas, wedding showers, baby showers and more. Now we don’t do favors for all parties but some. Want to wow them with favor containers?? Want to give a gift at a party in something personally made instead of something bought at a store?? Want to include something creative that they can keep and use for something else when the gift is gone?? Well here we go. Boxes, bags and cones that you can use to fill with stuff. Something you can give in a creative way.
We will start with the more simple things and go from there. I will be doing most of the items with both paper scrapbook stuff and digital scrapbook stuff and will include the supplies for each project as well as a list at the end. In the end you will have many options for parties or anything else you want to give them for.
A few things to know and remember:
1. It is best to cut down your paper to printer size and print the template directly on the paper. This way you have all the lines you need for cutting and folding
2. You will cut on solid lines and score on dotted lines.
3. You want to use a good adhesive so that the boxes stay together.
4. Most of these projects will work best with a double sided paper. That way you have a design or color inside and out.
This is very simple and takes very little time.

Step 1: Print template on back of desired paper
Step 2: Cut on solid lines
Step 3: Fold on dotted line (or at corners where they would be a line)
Step 4: Fold bottom flap in
Step 5: Fold one side over and tape or glue to the bottom flap
Step 6: Fold other side over and tape/glue to first flap
At this point you can decorate it however you would like on the front.
Be sure to have a way to close the flap.
Here are the 2 finished ones:

: Print template lines on the paper.
: This is one of those projects that using a double sided paper would be best.
You can also print on both sides of the paper for the digital one. Just don’t print the lines on both sides – just one.
: Cut along cut lines
: Fold on fold lines
: Cut small slit for tab to fit in
here are my finished ones
now there are lots of different ways to do the cones. I have given one template here and then for the other you just need a half circle

this one is so much easlier than I was thinking but you will need a paper crimper
ACOT #419-00502 – Moxxie Slumber Party Paper
ACOT #166-50911 – Pebbles Inc. Happily
start with a rectangle and fold in half long ways and tape or glue the open side together
tape one end closed
then you would fill before taping the other end closed but you are gonna make the close go the opposite direction
now all you have to do is crimp the ends

I love this one and I think it would be great if you are giving a fast food resturant gift card
Now i'm not giving alot of written instruction here but most of these once you print the template they will either tell you or they are very simple.
i have 5 more items and these next 2 i only have digital templates for. But don't let that stop you. Even if you don't do digital you can still use digital templates.
