{Paper Crafting} Movie Time Popcorn Snack Mix Recipe and Printable

My family loves movies. We watch them at home and at the movie theatre. Popcorn or some sort of snack mix is usually involve when we are at home. We love making snack mix which almost always involves popcorn and for me a “clean out the pantry” time opportunity. Every time we make snack mix it is different. We hope you enjoy our simple, go to snack mix!

This week we are sharing paper crafting ideas and I happen to run across a simple, do-it-yourself free printable popcorn box from the ever so crafty foodie blog, Design Eat Repeat. Today I’m sharing with you what I made with her printable and then you can POP on over to her blog and get the free printable. I printed mine off in gray scale/ black and white but switching my printer setting. On her blog, she has the project in the bright colors. Either works!

This printable project would be fun to use at parties, too. It took me 5 minutes to print, cut, tape and add a cute Bowdabra bow to this box. If you print it off in color use different colored bows. Same if you print it in black and white. Pick any ribbon you want and I just used what I had on hand. Super easy and what a special touch to family movie night.

 

Materials Needed:

 

Instructions:

1. Begin by gathering all the materials you will need to make the popcorn box which includes printing off the pattern in color or black & white.

6. Keep making equal loops and finish with a tail on the opposite side where you began. Do as many loops as you want. I just did one on each side. Add extra scraps of ribbon as needed.
