Cute and beautiful Minion favor box using Sizzix dies from Ellison. The dies set I had was actually meant to create owls and foxes, but I had a request for a Minion themed birthday party. So I improvised a little and came up with these instead. They are easy to make and kids just love them, because they are that cute and look so funny.

The Templates And Supplies
For this particular Minion favor box I used the Sizzix dies set from Ellison. To cut the eyes circles I had to use a circle from a different set I had around. You can pick the diameter depending on your preferences.
The paper used was just regular card-stock, and for the glasses base and circles I used foam. To glue the carton I prefer using white glue as it lasts longer. For the glasses in the tutorial I used hot glue. The hot glue doesn’t seem to hold as well, so I used silicone glue even if it takes some time to dry. At the end I want to create a good quality party favor box.
Quick Steps And Tips
It’s easy if you decide on the number of the boxes you have to create, and cut all the needed parts. If you have a large number of boxes to create, try to do on all in one step at a time. Fist prepare and finish all the boxes. Then cut the shape needed for the pants. Since for the pants I didn’t had any dies set, I used half of the one I created the box with. If you want, you can simply cut them by hand with ought using any dies set at all. Then simply create a template, and trace it on the carton to create the rest of the needed pants.
The pocket I cut in the video tutorial is optional. You can cut it from a separate piece, as it gives the pants more like a 3D look. If you don’t want the pocket this way, you can simply draw it. For creating a little shade on the box, pants and glasses edges, I used Distress Oxide Ink ( Vintage Photo ).
