Hanging Favor Boxes


A chair is more inviting when a treat dangles from it.


  • Box
  • Ribbon
  • Ruler
  • Awl
  • Scissors
  • Card stock
  • Candy
  • Hole puncher


  1. Step 1

    To make a hanging box like this one, first find the lid's center (use a ruler to lightly mark two diagonal lines from corner to corner on the underside of the lid; the point where the two lines cross is the center), and make a hole with an awl. Repeat for box bottom.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a 22-inch length of ribbon; fold in half, forming a loop. Starting at box bottom, thread loop through holes. Knot at bottom; trim ends.

  3. Step 3

    Cut a tag out of card stock and write a celebratory message. Punch a hole in one corner, and thread onto ribbon loop. Fill with sweets.
