Personalized Take Out Boxes as Party Favors
My Rating: ★★★★★
Running out of kids birthday party favor ideas? Here’s one.
I personalized these chinese take out boxes for my son’s 1st birthday. These are absolutely easy to decorate. I’ve seen mini take out boxes (noodle boxes) at a gift shop in SM Makati and I thought they would be a perfect match for my son’s birthday theme. They sell for 50 pesos each so I had to find a cheaper alternative.
Wholesale Chinese take out boxes can be found in Divisoria. You can buy them at George Enterprises, just outside the Divisoria Mall along Tabora Street. They sell wrappers, school supplies, and packaging products. I requested for their smallest noodle boxes but they were out of stock so I purchased them in medium sizes (16 oz or 26 oz). Each box costs around 3 pesos only. I chose the printed red boxes with plastic handles.
Personalized birthday stickers
Fold along the lines.
Glue the cone-shaped sides together to make side flaps.
Find the hole marks in each flap. Pierce the hole with the pin at the end of the handle. Secure together flaps on both sides to create a box.
Place the party favor inside the box. For the ladies, I made personalized bag charms with a letter Z metal accent for my son’s initial.
Get the Japanese paper and cut them into thin strips. Crumple them a bit and fill more than half of the box. They should look like noodles. Noodles fit right into the Japanese/Naruto birthday theme.
Throw in a few pieces of paper soaps for the “ingredients”.
Close the box.
Place a personalized birthday sticker on top or on either sides. You may also replace stickers with birthday tags.
Cut ribbons in desired length.
Wrap a ribbon around the box and tie it.
I made 50 take out box party favors. 🙂
