Father's Day Pop Corn Favors

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a fun favor that I made up for Father's Day, which I know is tomorrow and so you wont be able to make one of these in time, but at least its an early idea for next year :)
I make the favors for various events at church and I am asked to make 60 so I need to make things a bit simple and inexpensive. This project was great because I was able to use up quite a bit of retired Designer Series Paper. 
This is the only version that used a current paper, Floral Boutique!  As I was making it I thought it would have been great as a baseball jersey so maybe I will give that a go soon.






















The Tux has a fun bow tie made from the Bow Builder Punch!





These boxes are so easy to change for any season or occasion.  Make them Santa Suits or an elf for Christmas, decorate with fall colors and stamps for Thanksgiving.  You can fill with just about anything so really the ideas are endless.  




I filmed my first video tutorial at the urging of my sons.  I mentioned the idea to them a few weeks ago and they have been asking every day of summer vacation when we are going to make a video for YouTube so here it is!  It wasn't too bad!  I hope that you will give it a watch.  I give a step by step and measurements, hopefully in a clear way that is easy to do. Let me know what you think!

See if you can remember some of these older papers! 

I bought the popcorn at my local Mariano's grocery store who made up special jumbo packs for me with just 24 hours notice, and at a great price.  When I went back to pick up the bags the next day I could not believe how large the bags were!  I had enough for my 60 favors and my family will be eating the left overs for several days I am sure.
Jillian was very happy to help with this project!






























All boxed up and ready to go!

  1. These are just too darn cute! Each one is special! I had trouble hearing you on the video but I also have 3 fans going and a husband yakking in the background. If I can't get all the details from the video, I will e-mail you. I know I want to make some of these for various events.

  2. Thanks for a great video and the inspiration! Think I will make the box into a graduation gown and attach a mortar board hat with tassel for next year's high school graduation favors. Your video was easy to follow and very detailed! Never would have guessed this was your first video. Thanks again.

  4. Today the fans aren't on, husband is on a plane, and the dog is even quiet. I could hear it fine and got the score marks and will play it again when I make my first one. These are just too cute. Wonderful job for your first video!
