Just like glitter, a tacky surface is all you need for this simple project.
Crafty types adore flocking powder (think fuzzy glitter) because it comes in a bazillion colors and adds a soft-texture finish to practically anything (though we have to admit we’re partial to the way the powder cozies up these boxes). It’s versatile, tactile, and so easy to work with. We used double-sided tape, glue dots, and, for our monogrammed boxes, a stencil, and acrylic paint to create a sticky surface. Then we tapped the powder generously on top, brushed away the excess, and voila.
Tools & Materials
Favor Box How-To
1. To make the polka-dot pattern, apply glue dots to the boxes. For the ribbon-style boxes, use double-sided tape. (You can also use paint to create any design.)
2. Pour a generous amount of flocking powder onto the sticky pattern.
3. Tap the box against a paper-covered surface to loosen and collect excess powder to reuse.
