St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Party Favor Box Craft

Pin It
This is a great looking box to collect goodies at your next St. Patrick's Day party. It's made around a small box with craft foam. It takes many steps and is less of a classroom project than a home one, but the end result looks awesome.
Materials:

  • craft foam in rainbow colors
  • cotton balls
  • card stock
  • small box like a jello or crayon box
  • glue
  • ruler
  • clothespins
  • scissors
  • box cutter

Directions:

  1. Craft foam comes in sheets. Cut to 1/4 inch wide strips about 8-10 inches long.
  2. Cut a small rectangle from card stock. Cover with glue and line up the craft foam strips in rainbow order. Put a generous amount of glue on top and add a few cotton balls. It's maybe easier if you do both ends at the same time. Allow to dry.
  3. Take a small box like for jello. Trace the sides on green craft foam, cut out and glue to the box. Allow to dry.
  4. Put glue on the back of the card stock behind the clouds and attach to the sides of the box. Attach clothespins to hold in place. Allow to dry.
  5. If desired, add shamrock stickers or dazzles.

Original craft with lots of great pictures available from the 4 Crazy Kings website.
