Butterfly Favor Boxes



These were one of those late-night brain storm thingies. I needed a quick and easy favor box for a friend's daughter's baby shower, which had the theme of butterflies & flowers. I spent a LONG time working on some fancy flowers & butterflies to put on top of the favor boxes, and then I remembered the file I had downloaded from Heather M's blog earlier in the day. It was a cute little favor box with a round tab at the top for fastening. I incorporated the butterfly into the tab to make this cute little box. It is sized for a Baby Bug, but you can re-size however you want. My finished box is a 1¾" cube - perfect for a hand-full of mints or Easter M&M's! I chalked the white under-wings that formed the clasp of the box, and chalked the edges with a different color. I cut the lacy-winged butterfly in half and glued to the two sides of the clasp.

The svg is $5.00 USD. Please use the Donate button to make your purchase, and leave a note under  "Purpose" on the PayPal page telling me which file it is that you want. Upon notification from Paypal of funds received, I will email you the svg and any related files. Thanks a bunch!

Hi,

I was looking up ideas for a favor box for my wedding and stumbled on this site. It's absolutely was what I was looking for! My friend happened to have a Cricut machine, but she's not sure if she could create this. May I ask what cartridge you use to create this? Thank you so much! Any hints or helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

T said...

Also, may I ask how would I use an .svg file? Thank you so much!!!

Dear T - Your friend would need a program called "SCAL", which can be bought and downloaded from http://craftedge.com. She will not be disappointed. With SCAL, you can cut a ton of things on your Cricut without having to buy another cartridge, if you don't want to. For another site to visit, just to see what types of things can be cut, go to http://www.svgcuts.com/. You can also do a search for "svg files". The offerings are endless.
If you have any further questions, please include your email address, so I can answer them via email.
Laura
