DIY Favor Box

I'm feeling a bit crafty lately. Craft is my thing, you can call it a hobby. I feel happier when I've done some successful craft. So, of course this post will be something about craft. This time I'm posting a DIY Tea Stained Favor Boxes that I found on Style Me Pretty. Favor boxes have to be good since most of the time, we give those boxes to someone else. Below is the visual step-by-step tutorial. Don't worry, it's not complicated =)
Hope you like it...

Box Supplies:
  • Unfinished wooden boxes
  • A cup of black brewed tea
  • Sponge brush,
  • Scrap paper
  • Several tea bags
Label Supplies:
  • Chalkboard paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Chalk pen
  • Tape or adhesive
1. Dip the brush in brewed tea and paint the wood boxes. Use some scrap paper to catch the drips.
2. Be sure to get all the nooks and crannies of the box, even the insides. Let the box dry, then apply additional coats if you want a deeper color.
3. Cut the labels if necessary to fit on top of your box. Use a pencil to sketch out the label. You can do names for table place cards or cute sayings for favors.
4. Use a chalk pen or white marker to trace over your pencil lines.
5  Adhere your finished label to the top of the box with tape, glue or adhesive.
6. Fill the box with your favorite tea for your guests to enjoy!
