Hello Pebbles Friends! It’s Leanne here today, sharing a fun gift giving idea for those who love to sit back and enjoy their favourite movie! In our household we love to have regular movie nights and have been known to occasionally have a movie marathon or two while we are all on holidays! Right now my children are on Summer break and in the cool of the air-conditioning, they are relaxing with all their favourite flicks. It is one of our favourite destinations to spend time as a family and we don’t even mind that we stay within the comforts of our own home.
These holidays, I thought I would help them celebrate, with a cinematography experience we all enjoy.. Popcorn! Making our family together time just became more fun with these cute little popcorn boxes.
I started with choosing which paper collection I wanted to use. The America the Beautiful collection teamed up with crisp white and primary coloured cardstock, works perfectly for most styles of movie genre.
Next, I found a free template online and used it to create my base boxes. Alternatively, you could always carefully open an existing popcorn box and trace around the outside edge, creating your own template. Either way works fine.
Follow the template instructions and fold the boxes along the score lines. Secure with double sided tape.
To create the labels, simply cut/punch two (2) oval shapes, one slightly larger than the other. These ovals can be cut from patterned paper or cardstock. Layer the smaller oval on top of the larger one and secure with adhesive.
You can add a personal touch to your label by adding the gift recipient’s name or as I have done, words like “popcorn” (created with an electronic die cutting machine), “pop” or “celebrate”.
The red and white stripe of the Holly Jolly Candy Cane Thickers reminds me very much of a classic movie theatre experience. Just because an item is part of a themed collection, it doesn’t mean it won’t work for a something different. Remember to always think outside the box! (As shown with the next label idea.)
Add your labels to the front of each popcorn box and finally fill your finished project with your favourite flavoured popcorn!
Now you can curl up on the couch with your loved ones, enjoy taking a break and treat yourself to some yummy snacks.
Thanks for visiting!
