Kids are cute, funny and sweet… but not always at weddings. If we are being honest, it’s a super long and totally boring day for them until the desserts and dancing – that’s where they shine! So today’s DIY kids wedding favor box will hopefully keep them occupied for an hour or so, getting them through some of the dull parts. Today’s project is not just about the favor box though, I’ve also got 6 brand new coloring pages for you to download for free – since last years coloring pages were so popular. Putting these adorable little gifts together is super easy, and should take you less than 2 hours. I kept the box decoration fairly simple as we all know the kids are just going to trash the boxes anyway, but colorful enough to intrigue them!

Add each kids name to a label. Adhere the label to the front of the box using Glue Dots or your favorite scrapbooking adhesive. The top of the label wraps around the top flap of the box and the bottom does the same.

The final touch is to add a crayon to the top of the box. Just take one from the kids crayon box, loop with twine and tie a bow. Done!
