- Templates can be made bigger or smaller using your printer or a photocopier, or you can ask a... print shop to prepare your printing files
- Make a sample box and mark where the decoration is to go before finishing the boxes, this will save any mishaps such as a stamped image placed the wrong way up
- Prepare the favor boxes in advance by printing the templates, trimming the box shapes from paper or card stock, adding any surface decorations and then store the prepared boxes flat, ready to assemble shortly before the wedding. This avoids any risk of damage to the favor boxes before the date of the wedding.
