Little Overalls Favor Boxes

Hello!  I don't know how time gets away from me so much.  I have so many projects I'd love to sit down and create and I end up spending it in email or running neccessary errands, or taking care of family.   I still have many projects on my to-do list!

For instance a baby shower coming up at my church, I am making 75 little favor boxes.
I made this "prototype" below up for the product pictures for Doodle Pantry's new product release today, but the favors for the actual shower are going to have the little SU punched tag in green/yellow (the boys room theme is John Deere).  When I finish all the favor boxes for that, I will post a picture here.
The "Little Man" sentiment is included in the Overalls Favor Box SVG product, along with a few other TINY sentiments. The mustache in the photo below is handcut, but you could find an SVG cut of mustaches to cut some out, in fact, Doodle Pantry has some.
Supplies for these boxes listed at bottom of post.

The box inside is 1-1/4" deep, 2-1/2" wide, and to the top of the overalls (not the curved straps) is 2" tall. But to the top of the curved straps is 3-1/4". So a medium "fun sized" candy can fit in there, or 5-6 kisses. I haven't checked, but maybe even a gift card put in diagonally MIGHT fit in it.
I also made a girl version.  For the girl version below, I used the digi paper from Camo Digi Paper Pack.
I'm so glad I never threw out or gave away my tons of 5mm (1/8") eyelets!  They work perfect on the straps on these Overalls boxes.  And the really TINY brads, I think they are 3mm (1/16"), work best for the pocket corners.
It's funny, after I finished this little box, I thought how cute it would be to get a white or pink 1/2" or 5/8" lace to wrap around the bottom of the box to make it look like an overalls skirt!

These are adorable, Laurie! Such a great idea for a baby shower. That's one big job to make 75 of them though! Good luck!
