CHA Winter '09 Make & Take

Our CHA Make & Take was a blast this year! Thanks to all of you who helped to get the project prepared, taught at the show, and to our customers and friends with whom we had so much fun! 

To celebrate the Chinese New Year, which began on January 26 (the year of the Ox), we made these adorable little favor boxes out of covered take-out containers. How appropriate!

To make, you will need:

1 - 1/2 Pint Take-Out Container (available online or in craft stores)
Ribbon Scraps (Red, Black & Gold)
Favors! - we used customized fortune cookies

  1. Begin by covering the take-out box with Paper House's China Collage Paper. To do so, you can cut 4 separate pieces and glue them onto each side, or two longer pieces to wrap around. Make sure to leave a cut-out for where the handle will be to allow it to move freely, or make slits in the paper around the handles and glue down firmly. If making multiple boxes to use as party favors, it's easy to create a template by unfolding one of your boxes, cutting and taping the appropriate sides together.
  2. Wrap the border from the Cardstock Sticker around the bottom of the container, making sure to stay parallel with the bottom of the box. Decorate your favor box as desired with the other China Cardstock Stickers on the sheet.
  3. Tie several scraps of ribbon around the handle of your favor box to add a bit of glitz and glam! We especially like the way the gold ribbon contrasts with the red and sepia tones of the project!
These take-out boxes make quick and easy favors for any event. Personalize your favors with any of our fun & unique themes to match the style of the party you're throwing!
