A Diamond Party Favour - using Pink Paislee and Sizzix

Hey everyone! I'm here sharing my latest project with you as part of 6×6 Paper Pad week on the Pink Paislee blog. Anyone that knows me well knows that I love to decorate and throw my kids theme parties. So for today’s post I decided to have a go at creating a party favor box. Decorating the diamond box with the 6×6 paper pad was simple, it looks effective, and it’s oh so fun!

These boxes are so enjoyable to make and I love that it is easy to customise the patterns used on the outside of the box based on the 6×6 paper pad. To construct these boxes I used seven paper designs from the 6×6 paper pad, a Sizzix Thinlits Diamond Box die (661701), some white cardstock, glue, scissors, seam binding, and some lollies to fill.

Once I constructed the actual box and folded along the score lines I was ready to embellish and decorate it with the patterned papers. I love that the patterns in the 6×6 paper pad are smaller, meaning that the designs are perfect for this size project. I used the die to cut one patterned paper to get a smaller template of the inner row of the box. I then cut that smaller again so that when I adhered it to the box, a white border was visible. I used those pieces as a template and cut the remaining 6 patterned papers to the same size and adhered them all to the boxes surface.

I adhered the box together but prior to the final seal I added some sweets. However, a box shaped like this could be used to store a small gift or even used as a decorative hanging piece. I pierced a hole in the top of it and threaded through some seam binding and tied a bow. This allowed me to hang it if I choose to.
