DIY Free Favors Gift Box

DIY Gifts, Wedding

I’m making these boxes for a friend’s wedding. I challenged myself to make wedding favors under 2. I figured out how to make a small gift box out of paper for free! These are easy but nice cheap favors boxes.

I managed to spend less than $50k on everything including the honey moon on my wedding. I thought that was a lot at the time. As it turns out, it is below average.

This was the inspiration for this project, I wanted to create something that didn’t cost anything.

Even the little things add up when you have 100 guests. These little favor boxes sell for $2 a pop online.

My gift box is super simple to make and you can reuse materials you already have around the house.

(That’s it!)

How to make a free DIY favor gift box:

Step 1: Print the template to the appropriate size

You can always design the cutout by hand. I’ve spent some time optimizing my template for the proportions. It is free for anyone that is interested including all file formats (SVG|PNG|PDF)

    I created the template for standard a4 paper but you can enlarge it or reduce it for however large or small you would like.

    Step 2: Trace and cut out the grocery bag

    I have a fancy cutting machine so I just cut it there but this is a simple design and totally doable by hand.

    Step 3: Fold at the base of the cutout and slide the hearts in the slots

    That’s it! It doesn’t get easier than this.

    It’s true, the best things in life are free. πŸ™‚
