Dress Up A Juice Box

I recently threw a Pinkalicious birthday party for my daughter who turned 3.  I wanted to serve juice boxes because the party guests were little, and I didn’t want to be cleaning spills in the middle of the party. 😉  So, I decided to dress the juice boxes up a little, to make them fit the Pinkalicious decor.

Dress Up A Juice Box

It was really easy to do, didn’t require anything beyond what I had around the house anyway, and you could totally make these to match any party theme or color scheme.

Here’s what you’ll need:

– paper
– glue gun
– juice boxes
– stickers or something to decorate with

1. This is a lot like wrapping a gift, but you don’t need to cover the top or bottom, so you don’t need to do any fancy folding.  Just measure & cut the paper to the height of the juice box.  Then wrap it around to find how wide the paper needs to be & cut it.

2. Next, you’ll get your glue gun & glue the paper in place around the juice box.  Just glue along the edge, hold the paper in place until it’s dry & repeat as you work your way around the box.

(oh you noticed my pink fingers?- I had been using pink food coloring the same day ;))

3. Next, you can add some stickers or whatever extras you want to decorate with, & your cute party drinks are all ready to go for those little guests’ hands!

If you want, you can even make this a little party craft and have them decorate their own drinks!

I hope you enjoyed this simple party craft!  I’ve thrown two birthday parties recently and I know how nice it is to have something simple you can do to add to the party!  If you’re visiting my blog in the next little while, I’ll be adding more bits & pieces from my daughters’ birthday parties.  You’re welcome to check in on our birthday party fun!

      Cute! We had a Pinkalicious Party for my oldest girl last year, it was by FAR my favorite party theme yet! There are so many great ideas floating around on the web for it.

        I just took them off & put them aside (still in the wrapper) for when we'd be drinking them.

      This may sound silly but I'm new to this, so have mercy! How do the labels not get wet from the drinks being cold? I wanted to put labels on water bottles too but I want the drinks to be cold and was worried the labels would get soggy.

        That's a good question Jasmine! I didn't refrigerate the juice boxes because my girls aren't big on cold drinks, so I'm not sure.
