Paper Stripes Favor Boxes DIY

by Sally J Shim

One of my favorite things about party planning is coming up with ideas for what to give the guests as a little memento.  There are so many options when it comes to party favors but I tend to prefer giving edible gifts that everyone will love. The presentation of your party favor is as important as what is inside, so adding a little attention to the packaging will impress your guests. These paper stripes favor boxes are simple to make and easy on your wallet. You can add homemade or store-bought cookies, candy, or little trinkets inside the boxes.
