DIY Mini Fiesta Boxes with Fringe and Taco Bars for Weddings

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I have a fun DIY to start today's post with. I was recently sent several blank boxes from Pamela Smerker Designs and asked to put my craft skills to the test to see what I could come up with. Since I knew today was coming, I thought her petal favor boxes {which come undecorated or with patterns on them} was the perfect starting point for my Mini Fiesta Boxes. How cute would these be for guests at your next party of fiesta? Or maybe at your taco bar? {more on taco bars for weddings after the DIY}
To create this mini fiesta box, I used one of Pamela Smerker Designs' white petal box with crepe paper that I fringed with scissors and then glued around the sides of the box with glue stick, overlapping the colors. I then painted both sides of the petal flaps with matching colors. I lined the box with wax paper and placed in corn chips. It's now the perfect individual serving for your guests' chips to be dipped in guacamole or bean dip. This cute little "take-out box" of sorts, is perfect for today's Cinco de Mayo parties and especially perfect for taco bars at weddings and pre-wedding events. The colors can of course be changed to match your party.
A perfect way to use these Fiesta Boxes is with a Taco Bar at your wedding. Wouldn't it look super cute to see a box like this filled with chips and decorated in your wedding colors waiting at your guests' place setting? What a fun way to bring color to the table. You could even have small bowls of bean dip and guacamole ready for immediate dipping at the center of the tables. And, then of course, a taco bar is the perfect reception solution.
