This Steampunk Party post is courtesy of our contributor Michelle…When planning a party, I love to add lots of details to bring the theme together. For my upcoming birthday, I am planning a Steampunk themed “Stopping Time…Forever Thirty Nine” dinner party and today I‘m sharing how to Steampunk store bought popcorn boxes using the Big Shot by Sizzix. Of course, you can use this technique for virtually any party theme. There are literally hundreds of embossing folders available in the Sizzix online store so you are sure to find an embossing folder to match your theme.
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Multipurpose Platform
- Standard Cutting Pads
- Embossing folders of your choice
I used Pocket Watches & Steampunk folders from the Tim Holtz collection to match my theme, but you can use any Sizzix embossing folders to match your party theme.
Steampunk Party Popcorn Boxes:
Step by Step Instructions:
Line up the popcorn box with the embossing folder as shown.
Then “sandwich” the embossing folder between the two standard cutting pads and place them on the multipurpose platform.
Turn the handle to run the platform and “sandwich” through the Big Shot.
To emboss the other side, turn the popcorn box over and repeat. You can use more than one style for your popcorn box as shown here. I used both the gears and the pocket watches on 1 popcorn box.
Now just fill up your popcorn box with flavored popcorn or your favorite treat and you have the perfect little party favors for your guests! Embossing popcorn boxes are an easy way to add a little extra detail to your party!
