Learn how to make your own stickers to create a honey bee favor box for parties and events.
When I’m making party favors, I save time by using stickers instead of assembling lots of tiny elements. The Honey Bee Collection has lots of adorable elements to choose from, making it perfect for this sweet project!
Honey Bee Favor Box Supplies
- Honey Bee SVG Collection
- Small Jar Candle Gift Box SVG
- Printable Sticker Paper
- Cardstock (one 12 x 12 sheet)
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
- Small Candle
- Clear Plastic Sheet
I started out by uploading and cutting the small candle gift box. I used a 12 x 12 sheet of yellow cardstock to do this.
Next I uploaded the various elements from the Honey Bee Collection to Silhouette Design Studio and started adding the pieces I wanted to the gift box template. This made it easy for me to resize the elements so they would fit my box perfectly.
Once I knew where everything would go, I removed the gift box, changed the work area size, and added the print registration. I rearranged all the design elements to fit on the printable area and duplicated them, so I would have enough stickers for two boxes per sheet. I used the offset tool to outline the shapes so I could cut just around the designs.
When I printed the sticker sheet I added the “bleed” option. This extends the color on the edges of the print so that you don’t have white lines around the image. Then I used the “cut” feature to cut out my stickers.
Now comes the fun! Peel and stick the different cute designs on the box. I followed the instructions to assemble the small gift box, which was very easy to do!
I used a small dollar store candle for the favor boxes. Peel the store label off and add the cute sticker label that you just made!
These sweet little favor boxes are so cheery and buzzing with sweetness!
I originally published this project on the Printable Cuttable Creatables site as a member of their design team.
