This unicorn bomboniere is a simple DIY project that will delight your guests. With some simple illustrations, dried flowers, and some ribbon, you can transform our bomboniere petite box to match your sweet event theme. 

How to Create: 

After drawing a face on your box and allowing it to dry, assemble your box and insert the party favour gift. Close the bomboniere box. Next, tie two small bows, with the larger bow measuring approximately as wide as your bomboniere box. Using a hot glue gun, attach a leatherleaf fern so that it comes to a point, like a unicorn horn. Anchor the horn with the larger bow. Then, attach a small sprig of preserved hydrangea and glue on an angle, with the smaller bow sitting beside it.

This pearlescent cardboard bomboniere with a lacy border is a delicate and Elegant DIY Favours packaging project. With the help of only a small paper doily, our modern box bomboniere packaging is elevated with the power of detailing. 

How to Create: 

Assemble your bomboniere box. Your paper doily should measure approximately 135mm in diameter. Cut a semicircle out of your doily that measures 45mm at its tallest point. The outer curved edge of the doily needs to be the ‘arch’ in your semicircle. Repeat this process, as you will need two semicircles per bomboniere box. Using a gluestick, glue on one semicircle at a time, with the tallest point of the semicircle sitting at the centre of the bomboniere box’s panel. Next, wrap the edges onto the side panels of the box. Take care to glue down your doily securely. Repeat this process with your second doily semicircle on the opposite side.
