I created this umbrella favor box for a friend who was hosting a bridal shower. She wanted the box in the shape of an umbrella and after playing around a bit, I came up with this design. This box is suitable for candy or another small favor. If you would like to make your own umbrella-shaped favor boxes, please follow my tutorial below.
Step 1 Handles
Print off the shower umbrella handle template onto card stock. Cut out a handle (there are 5 handles on each page).
Step 2 Umbrellas
With the Big Shot, cut a piece of card stock with the scallop circle die.
Cut the scallop circle in half.
Use the Extra-Large Oval Punch to punch 3 oval bites on the straight side of the scallop circle.
Here is what the half scallop circle should look like when you are done punching with the Extra-Large Oval Punch. Repeat for the other half scallop circle.
Decorate the Shower Umbrellas as desired.
Step 7 Box
Cut a coordinating 6” x 3” piece of cardstock. On the 6” side, score at 2-¼” and 3-¾”. On the 3” side, score in ½” on both sides.
Cut along the scored lines on both of the long sides (as indicated by the bold black lines), just until you reach the first score line going in the opposite direction.
Angle cut the corners.
Place sticky strip on all six tabs. Make sure middle tab has sticky strip close to the edge (otherwise some of the adhesive will show through).
Remove the lining of the sticky strip on the middle tab. Adhere the scallop circles as shown. Make sure the decorated side is facing up.
Remove the rest of the sticky strip liner and adhere edges to form box.
Adhere the handle to the inside of the box with sticky strip.
Add candy or another small gift to the box. Tie with ribbon and add a tag.
Shortcuts for mass production:
- Cut up to 3 scallops circles at a time with your Big Shot.
- Cut a scallop circle in half and use as a template to trace the halfway line on all the scallop circles. (use with step 3)
- Cut a scallop circle in half and trace 3 ovals onto the cut edge. Punch with the Extra-Large Oval Punch. Now you can use this as a template for all of your scallop circles. (use with step 4)
