My youngest daughter is obsessed with emojis.  If you have an elementary school or middle school aged child, I am sure you can relate 🙂  Every time my daughter sends me a text, she ends it with about a bazillion emojis.  So these cute emoji favor boxes will be perfect for her next birthday party.

The finished treat boxes are approx. 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches x 3 inches in size.  They are the perfect size for fun-sized candy bars or a few pieces of individually wrapped candies like Hershey’s Kisses, mints, etc.  You could probably even use them to hold lip balm (Eos or stick) or mini bottles of nail polish.

I made these with the Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake die.  I have to admit, I hope this die carries over the next catalog because I have made so many favor boxes for kids parties with it.  Super versatile and useful!  You can decorate the Curvy Keepsake treat boxes to match any holiday or occasion (like these cute jack-o-lantern treat boxes).

Creatively Homemade Tutorial

Assembling the Emoji Favor Boxes

The Curvy Keepsakes die set makes easy work of putting together these emoji birthday favors.  The die does most of the work for you!

Using the Stampin Up Curvy Keepsakes die set to make cute emoji birthday favors.

For each emoji favor, you will need to cut two of the Curvy Keepsakes shapes from Crushed Curry cardstock.  You can get both shapes from one piece of cardstock if you cut it down to 6″ x 11″ (so it will fit through the opening in your die cut machine) and angle the dies slightly.

Using the Stampin Up Curvy Keepsakes die set to make cute emoji birthday favors.

Use Fast Fuse adhesive on the backside of one of the Curvy Keepsake pieces.  Each shape has 2 curved sides and a base.  You want to put adhesive on the base.  Then stick it to the base of the other piece like I show in the picture.

I recommend using Fast Fuse adhesive on these emoji birthday party favors or any 3D items you make because it is a stronger adhesive than most tape runners.  It can take some handling and the adhesive won’t fail when you open and close the treat boxes.

To finish up these treat boxes, just decorate one of the pointed sides with an emoji face.  Use Tombow Mono Adhesive to glue all the face parts to the treat box.  I have emoji party favor ideas for decorating the treat boxes in just a bit.

To close up the treat boxes, fold up the 2 rounded sides and line up the holes.  Bring up the non-decorated pointed side and insert the rounded tabs through the slit.  Add your candy or treat, then bring up the other pointed side and pull the tab through.

Emoji Party Favor Ideas:

I made 6 different faces for these emoji favor boxes.  There are more faces of course, but I wanted to stick with the happy ones since these are for birthday favors for kids.  I have included instructions below each to let you know how I made the punch art faces.

Laughing Emoji

I think these LOL emoji birthday party favors are my favorite!  The mouth was created with a 1 inch circle punch like I showed above.  The white teeth are created in the same way.  Just don’t insert the white cardstock quite as far.

The squinting eyes were created with a 1/2 inch paper punch and Basic Black cardstock.  I punched one circle then I moved the punch down slightly from the hole and punched again, giving the crescent shape.

Punch art tears for emoji face party favors.

To create the tears, punch a 1/2 inch heart from Tempting Turquoise.  Cut the heart down the middle to form 2 tears.

Use a black Stampin Write marker to draw the eyebrows.

Sunglasses Emoji

Create the mouth using the technique shown above to punch a crescent shape with a 1 inch circle punch.

Punch (2) 1/2 inch circles from black and cut off the top fourth from both.  Those will form the sunglass lenses.

Cut a super thin strip of black with a paper trimmer.  Like as thin as you can get it 🙂  That will form the top of the sunglasses.

Crazy Emoji

Aren’t these Crazy Emoji birthday party favors just awesome?  I feel like that sometimes.  LOL.

To make this emoji face, use a 1/2 inch circle punch and Basic Black cardstock to punch a crescent shape for for the winking eye.

Punch a 1/2 inch circle from Whisper White cardstock for the second eye.  Punch a 1/4 inch circle from black for the pupil.

Using a 1 inch circle punch, punch a half circle from black cardstock for the mouth.

Punchart faces for emoji treat boxes

Use a 1 inch heart shape from Melon Mambo and cut off one of the lobes as shown above.  This will form the tongue shape and then you can cut that down to make it a little shorter if you like.

Tongue Out Emoji

Using a 1/2 inch circle punch, create 2 black crescent shapes for the eyes.

Using a 1 inch circle punch, create 1 black crescent shape for the mouth.

Using a 1 inch heart punch, create 1 tongue, using the technique I explained above.

Blowing a Kiss Emoji

Punch a 1/2 inch circle from black for one of the eyes.

Punch a crescent shape with the 1/2 inch circle punch for the winking eye.  Cut off the pointed ends.

Punch a 1/2 inch heart shape for the kiss.

Use a Black Stampin Write Marker to draw the eyebrows and the puckered mouth.  The mouth is kind of like a 3 if you are like me and couldn’t draw your way out of a paper bag 🙂

      I hear ya on that 🙂 My youngest is in middle school. Sometimes I look at her and wish we could go back to when she was little, but then I come back to my senses. LOL.
