Party Favor Box

I've learned how to make a tiny box using the envelope punch board, (http://pootles.co.uk/2015/03/27/envelope-punch-board-yankee-candle-tea-light-gift-box/ "Thanks for sharing a great idea, Sam!") so I've made five boxes for diferent occasions. It takes only a few minutes to make a box itself, and you can decolate it as you like it to be.

When you take off the band/ribbon, all the boxes open up like this.
