  • Cuts through so many different materials – including card, craft metal, leather, and more!

Gemini Dimensionals Favour Boxes

Receiving a gift is always amazing, and it’s even more special when it’s presented in the sweetest little box! 

Each set in this range has everything you need to create and decorate the cutest favour boxes, perfect for wedding favours, party treats or just as a way to personalise your presents.

There are six designs to choose from, and each set comes with a stencil to create the box and a set of dies to decorate the sides with ornate designs. And, the best part is that the boxes are sized so you can mix and match the decorative panel dies to create something that’s just right for you! 

Making enough favour boxes for a full guest list of people can be time consuming, but that’s where the Gemini Pro comes in! The larger cutting platform means you can cut so many more elements in one pass – making your box-making a breeze!
