You can make these little party favor boxes and fill them with candy, a poem, picture, a small toy or affirmation note. I think it would be nice to write a little love note to a family member who has passed away and set this box at the ofrenda you make for them. Or you can insert a picture of a loved one who passed away and hand out a box to each family member to open and cherish.

SUPPLIES:

– Empty bath tissue paper rolls

– Aleene’s Tacky Glue, Aleene’s Tacky Glue Stick

– Paper (I used my Crafty Chica paper!)

– Scissors

– Small pictures (I’ve provided those below), glitter

Coat the roll with the glue stick, generously. Then line up the edge of the paper and roll around it until secure. Press your fingers so the paper stays in place, securely. Trim the paper, but leave about a 1/4-inch so you can fold the edges inside the roll. It looks nicer that way.

Put the treats inside the box. Carefully fold over each end into flaps to close the box.

Now it’s time to add pictures!

For these images, I shrank down some of mine and Patrick’s paintings to the size of a postage stamp. I then glued them to solid card stock.
