Handmade Paper Favour Boxes

Here's some favour boxes I've been making for a friend's wedding.

They are made form two 21cm squares of handmade paper.  Each has been scored using a score board an equal distance from all four edges.  The little squares made at each corner have then been scored diagonally form the centre out to the edge of the paper.  The boxes are then easily assembled with a little PVA glue.

Ribbon has been stuck around the edges of the lids using 6mm double sided tape.  A hole has been pieced using a piercing tool and a blossom threaded through it.  I have secured the blossoms in place with a little clear tape and trimmed off the excess wire.

These boxes could be made in different sizes but these will be filled with soil and seeds ready for the guests to plant in their gardens.  The bride has requested handmade paper which will compost relatively quickly so that there is no need for guests to remove the seeds and soil from the box before planting.
