Nothing says celebration more than a cute a full of candy favor box! These green hats make such perfect party favors too.

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 craft with.

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

Prep Work: Cutting all the pieces

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

2. 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.

3. Cut the base flaps with either scissors or a cutter.

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

5. 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.

18. 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 ⅛ inch.

22. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 sweets. Actually, you are in luck, you can even do this candy-free too by putting a special gift mixed with fun confetti.

  1. When I download the file the only thing that downloads is one page consisting of the of legs, flags and sign. No hat.

    1. Hi Diana, You probably downloaded the cut file plus printable. There are 2 options. The free cut files + printable and only printables. When you download the printables you will get the whole thing. The reason is because not everyone has a cutting machine. On the post you will see an image of what contains each donloadable link.
      Hopes this helps,
      Cami

  2. I love your St Patrick’s Day favor box. When I click on the free printables I receive an error message. It says site not found. Would you please update the link or email the free printables to me? I really want to make this favor box.
