Flower Punch Box

What is a punch box you might be asking yourself.  Don't worry, I had no idea until I saw it being pinned and featured everywhere I turned.


The woman that made this latest trend go viral, Elena from 'a Casarella, has pinatas all over the world crying, 'don't forget about me'.


A punch box holds all sorts of prizes inside and the only way to get them out, punch through the holes.  How much fun is that?


One of the things I love so much about punch boxes, just like with pinatas, you can customize them to fit your party theme. 

For our garden themed party, we opted for a flower themed punch box.  Yellow tissue paper makes up the center of the flowers.  I cut out and glued 7 pink petals around the yellow tissue paper center.  And, at the last minute, added a few green leaves.


You know your punch box was a success if, when you are done, it looks like this.


Here's a walk down punch box memory lane from past parties.

'A Casarella has an amazing tutorial on how to make one.  There is no use to reinvent the wheel, so go and check her post out for all the details.  And, make one for your next party!

  4. If I ever throw a party at home (instead of at a venue, or not at all), I'll have to do this. I loooove the idea!

  5. I really need to add this idea to my party to-do list, the kids would love it! Do you use the same large cardboard box and just redecorate it? xx

  6. I LOVE the punch boxes, I think I want one for my next party I could make it out of a wine rack and everyone gets a bottle of wine....or is that wrong? My kids would adore this, pretty sure even the boys would want a punch.

    1. Ha! That same thing happened to me the first year I made it. My nephew punched a hold in 8 holes before the party even started.

    1. Thanks Maysem. I prefer the punching to the clobbering of a pinatas :)

  12. I am so over pinatas, I love this idea. No kid gets bashed in the head with a stick, and then elbowed in the face when they are trying to grab as much candy as they possibly can. Yours is so cute.
