This craft can be made in two ways. The first is just printing the free printable and cut them the items yourself which is not hard at all. It’s all ready to cut and assemble.

The second is a cutting file so you can cut the hat pieces and the clovers on your favorite cardstock. Since not everyone has a cutting machine I decided to for the manual way to make this cute St. Patrick’s Day Favor Box so anyone can make it too.

This fun craft is not too messy, and the pieces that could fall on the floor would be easy be picked up by hand or vacuumed, making it a great craft to do with the whole family.

It took me about an hour or so to make it. If I had help I would have made it in a lot less. Unless it’s weekends It’s hard for me to get my girl’s help since she’s at school the whole day and when she gets home there’s not enough light to take photos.

As a confession I need to get more organized so I can make crafts with her on weekends, she’s so fun to crafts with.

Anyway, if you get those cute little helpers you will have tons of fun making this St. Patrick’s Day Favor Box.

What Type Of Paper Do I Need To Make This St. Patrick’s Day Favor Box?

I used plain white cardstock because I was going to print all the pieces. But If you want to use something different and don’t want to print it all , then you could use scrapbook paper, pattern paper, or any type of cardstock you like for the hat and shamrocks for example.

What to put in a Favor Box?

Your kids’ favorite candies of course, from simple gold coins to the favorite chocolate, cookies, sweets or even snacks if your family is not that into wweets. Actually you are in luck, you can even do this candy-free too by putting a special gift mixed with fun cofetti.

Prep Work: Cutting all the pieces

Of course, the first step is printing your cute printable, I recommend printing in high quality so it looks really bright and pretty.

Start by cutting the hat body. If you want a clean cut on the top edge then use a roller and a cutter (over a cutting mat) and cut the top edge. Don cut the sides just yet.

Cut the base flaps with either scissors or a cutter.

Then cut just one of the sides. The other one will work as gluing flap.

Using your ruler as a guide, fold the base flaps inwards. (please forgive my paper, I recycled my cardstock after a failed printing attempt). Set aside.

Cut all the items you want to use. I added a few extra ones.

Then turn your gold cardstock right side facing table, and draw a belt buckle. Nothing fancy.

Cut and set aside.

Then cut a strip of black cardstock, make sure it fits inside your belt buckle. Set aside.

Assembling the cute treat boxes.

Apply a small line of glue on the white flap of your hat’s body. Glue both ends together making sure no white part shows up.

Put in pace your hat’s belt making sure the closing ends match the hat’s body end. Glue them both together.

Then apply glue to the base flaps of the hat and glue it to the hat’s base.

Set aside.

Filling and decorating the St. Patrick’s Day Favor Box

Cut a piece of Floral Foam Block that will fit perfectly inside the hat.

With your pipe cleaners, measure the hat’s height and bend it 90º.

measuring with pipe cleanner

Then using a marker or any thick round element you have handy, wrap the pipe cleaner around a few times until you have only about 1/8 inch.

Release the pipe cleaner and stretch it a bit. Repeat with as many pipe Cleaners as items you want to add.

Glue the tip to the clovers and the sign and any other item.

Cut a couple of strips of straight pipe cleaner about the same height as the hat. Glue the legs upside down.

Then pinch the floral foam with the free end of the pipe cleaners. I tried to pinch around the floral foam block so I would have enough space for the chocolate coins.

Insert the floral foam block back to the hat and finally put all your chocolate coins in your hat!
