Easel Table Favor

Hello everyone! I am so excited to share with you today my Easel Table Favor box. These would make a great addition to your holiday tables.Plus they are super easy, even the kiddos can help out with these! I really loved the DCWV Autumn Melody Pattern Paper and Cardstock Stacks that we were able to use. They were the perfect canvas for my project - it even matched my candy corns! Yay! So here we go!

You will need the following:

4x4 square cardstock for drawer 
7 ½ x 3 cardstock for drawer cover
5 x2 ¾ cardstock for easel box top
Scallop frame cut with Silhouette Machine
Name journaling spot cut with Silhouette Machine
Copper Brad
Burlap, button and twine for embellishments
Leaf shapes cut with Silhouette Machine

Here is how I put this together:

  Step 1 – Score 4x4 cardstock ½ inch on each side.

Step 2- Snip corners as shown.

                              Step 3 –Glue corners in to create box.

     Step 4 – Score 7 ½ x 3 inch cardstock at 3,3 ½,6 ½, and 7 inches.

Step 5 – Fold box and glue edges together. Slide the cover over the drawer bottom. It will be a little bit snug,

Step 6 – Take brown cardstock easel box top and score at 1 ½ and 3 inches.

   Step 7- Glue oatmeal cardstock to the box top and add adhesive to the underside as shown. Glue that section down.
Example 8 – Glue name journaling spot to the scallop frame. Score leaf shapes down the middle and ink the edges. Add burlap strip, button and twine to top of box. Add Copper brad to front of box. Fill with your favorite treat and enjoy!

Thank you for letting me share with you this fun little box. And a hugh, big thank you do DCWV for designing such beautiful and inspirational products!  It will be a wonderful addition to your holiday tables! Happy Scoring!
