Oompa Loompa Favor Boxes

Posted on



I have been wanting to create some sort of favor boxes to go along with a Willy Wonka Party, based off of the stylized version of my Oompa Loompa toppers. I have actually been wanting to start adding more favor related items, so the inspiration for this came at the sort of, kinda the right time. I still am not up and running full time and wont be for a bit cause’ you know ….kids. So it’s still always a challenge to find time to squeeze out of a day that never has enough time for me to do all the things I want to do!

I often wonder about people who complain that they are bored, I mean with all the things one can learn and do and be, who ever has time to be bored?? But that is a tangent for another day at another time.

 

I thought that it may be appropriate to add in a bit of a how to assemble type of post, because I would rather just write it out once than to explain it over and over again. To begin these are a digital file available for purchase through my ETSY shop. You can purchase it in the Favor Box section of my shop and it goes along with the themed Willy Wonka items in my shop also available as digital files. A digital file if you are unsure, is simply a file that you can purchase and print at home basically immediately after purchase. If you don’t have the means to print at home, no problem, you can just print through a local printer like OfficeMax/Depot, Staples, Kinkos, etc.  They always print out great and at a great price. All the info is available in each listing or I can easily be contacted through my shop if one had additional questions!

The first thing that needs to be done, obviously is that the file needs to be printed. Always print at the best print settings. To free the little Oompa Loompa and get him up and going you will need the following…

  • Card Stock 110# recommended ( Think Index Paper)
  • Sharp scissors
  • A Ruler or something with a flat edge for folding
  • Ribbon
  • Hole punch
  • Hot glue, glue dots or tape
  • Fun stuff to fill box with

Print out the image (or however many you will need.)

Before you cut, flip the paper over and make fold lines, The first one may be tricky, but after that it just goes smoothly. It is so much easier to do this before any cuts are made. And make assembling them later so much less troublesome.

After the creases are added, it’s time to free the Oompa Loompa from his little paper prison. Make a rough cut first, then go in and cut out the smaller finer parts.

Bend the box over gently to match up the tops of the favor box and use a hole punch to create a ribbon hole thorough the hair.

 

Fold the box so that the sides can be attached. I use hot glue, but whatever method you prefer to use is up to you. I folded the middle portion on the inside and then folded the outer flaps in.

Once it is all sealed this is the inner portion of the favor box.

Using the ribbon color and thickness of your choosing, run the ribbon through the hole in the hair. I hate making bows, it’s one of my vices,  but do it anyway!

These are the front measurements of the box. Total height is 4.34 inches, the actual favor box height is 2.46 inches. These are not huge favor boxes, but the can hold some candies and goodies. And they look super cute all lined up

The side view measurements are 2.45 inches in height 1.84 inches in width.

Such a fun way to end any Willy Wonka themed party with a unique and festive favor box. Any questions please feel free to contact me through the shop or  here.

 

Have a great day friends!

 

 


Oompa Loompa Cupcake Toppers

Posted on


Hey there strangers! Miss me??? I am hoping that by this Fall 2016, I will be up and posting a bit more on the regular. If I have not mentioned it before, which I am sure I have a million times; four kids ages 7 and under does not leave much time for anything else but chasing them and cleaning up in the wake of their messes.

With that said, 3 out of four will be in school come this fall, which means a bit more time to get back into the studio and more time available for designing. I have decided that I am going to start shipping some items, now that I have an ounce more of time, I can start to work from home again and I want to be able to offer more options. Starting with these little guys.

My Oompa Loompa Toppers.

Starting now I will be able to ship them domestically fully assembled. In time I will offer international shipping but for now, these will only travel in the U.S.A.  

They measure out to be a tad bit smaller then 3 inches in diameter, not including the stick.

These are such a great addition to any Willy Wonka themed party or event. I will slowly be adding in all of the wonderful themed items to be available assembled and shipped, but for now just these little guys will be doing the traveling.

Thanks for stopping by to visit, hope I will be seeing more of you soon!!

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

 


Willy Wonka & Oompa Loompa Party

Posted on


These are some new ideas that I have been working on for a new type of printable. I made these more out of the sheer fact that I myself am pretty cheap and I’m always on the lookout look for more cost effective ways to make things. This is due to the fact that for many years of my life, I just did not have the money to spend on more expensive items, so I figured out how to make great stuff on a decent budget and I think many people would prefer to pay less for something more as well.

These over sized printables do just that…give you the larger decor factor with for less money.

Willy Wonka Oompa loompa Party Printables

The framed picture of Mr.Wonka himself measures approximately 15 inches tall when fully assembled. This would look great over the cake or as an wall hanging for a candy/dessert table.

And his trusty little assistant the Oompa Loompa measures approximately 24 inches tall when fully assembled. You can print as many as you need so if you wanted you could make an army of these little guys to decorate your party.

Oompa Loompa Large Cut Out Decoration

Willy Wonka prints out onto 5 separate pieces of papers that measure 8 1/2 x 11 in size. After printing, all you would have to do is cut out the image and piece it together using tape/glue. It lines up in a way so that it is seamless afterwards. You could even substitute the background with any type of patterned paper of your choice or use the patterned paper included.

The Oompa Loompa prints out on three separate sheets of paper measuring 8 1/2 x 11. You would just need to cut  out the character and attach the parts using glue/tape.
