A printable favor box with an unusual shape.
This style box is one that I call a twist box because of the top and bottom being perpendicular to each other. You can get a blank template to decorate in my Etsy shop. This version is already decorated with dots and stripes. It's a fun shape for party favors.
The stripes and dots box was created especially for Cut Out and Keep.

    Glue tab shown in blue on the diagram inside the box. Line it up carefully. The best results for me are using a thin coat of standard PVA/white glue, which I spread with a piece of the trimmed card stock.

    Tuck the tabs. If what you have in the boxes is a bit heavy, you may want to glue one of the tabs to the inside to be the "bottom" of the box.
