The inspiration for these Baby Shower Favor Boxes came to me while strolling through the aisles of Hobby Lobby. I saw a project for a rug that you could make by gluing 100's of mini pom poms to a round piece of fabric. The rug looked so cute but extremely time consuming! When I walked by these tiny cardboard boxes, I got the idea to make cute little favor boxes.
This is a simple idea that costs very little and takes
about 2 minutes per box to make.
I purchased the 2" round cardboard boxes but they had all shapes and sizes. Any craft store should have these little guys available. Use any craft glue for adhering the pom poms to the lid. I chose the multi-colored pack of mini pom poms. You can choose any colors to match the theme of your baby shower. Pink and gray would look so cute!
Paint the lids of the boxes with craft glue and the sprinkle the mini pom poms over the glue. Press gently with your hand to make sure they are all stuck to the lid. If needed, arrange the pom poms so they are evenly distributed.
To give the boxes a little more pop of color you can glue a ribbon around the side. I swiped a glue stick around the box and then carefully wrapped a pink ribbon around it. You can also add a favor tag attached to a string. Simple and cute!

This DIY tutorial is from the cute online shop, beau-coup.com. You can find mini champagne bottles at any grocery store, the glitter and spray glue can be found at WalMart, or any craft store. (tip: to keep the glitter from coming off on everyone's hands, paint 2 coats of Mod Podge decoupage glue onto each glittered bottle.) The cute striped straws and personalized ribbon is at beau-coup. So cute!
