How To Make These Easy Party Favor Boxes in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1: Form Your Shamrocks

  • With your glitter poster board, draw a shamrock shape onto the non-glitter side. This will be your shamrock template!
  • Once your template is made, carefully cut your shamrock shape out.

Step 2: Add Your Candy & Put Together Your Gold Bar Boxes

  • Before folding together, add your favorite St. Patrick’s Day candy and treats to your boxes.
  • To fold your box together, take the two bottom flaps and pull them towards the box center. This will form the walls of your gold bars.
  • Take the longest flap and fold it over. To seal, tuck the edge flap in.

Step 3: Embellish With A Little Bit ‘o The Rainbow

  • Trim the center of your gold bars with a little bit of the rainbow! Using your metallic washi tape, cut the length of your gold box.
  • Center and apply it to the surface. Finish by gluing a shamrock to the center of your gold bar.
