It’s true that all things tiny are cute. Especially little paper matchboxes with a lid that slides. The fun part is deciding what to put inside. This craft makes the perfect party favor, party decoration, or just a little treat box for your kiddos.
Adorable Little Papercraft Matchboxes
This Matchbox diecut from Quickutz makes it easy and fun to make these little boxes. You can also make them with a template like this one. Once you have the shape cut out, all you need to do is fold it all up. Follow the picture instructions to get the right fold.
This little box is the perfect size for tootsie rolls, gumballs or my personal favorite…lemon heads. What are some candies you would put inside?
Four little tootsie rolls packed like pickles. Aren’t they adorable?
To make the paper watermelons, all you need is a small paper circle cut in half. I used regular old craft paint, glitter and tiny black beads for the watermelon seeds. Glue the watermelon to the top of the boxes and then use them as table decor for a summer party or BBQ. This is a great craft idea for the summer months when watermelons are in season.
These little boxes make for a fun way to welcome guests to a dinner party or a fancy indoor picnic. Too cute!
