Okay, I am very excited about today’s Nintendo favor box. I remember hours wasted away as a child playing Gameboy with my friends. While I have made this box for a kid’s Nintendo SuperMario Bros. themed birthday party, I think that this little number might be just as popular with all of the parents. I even think it could be a great gift box for father’s day!
I have been sitting here trying to think back to all of the games we used to play on our Gameboy. The ones that spring to mind are Dr. Mario, Tetris and some sort of motorcycle game that I spent ages trying to get the guys to go around the full loop without falling off his bike? It was one of the first games to come out but I have no idea what it is called. If you have any idea what games that might be, let me know in the comments below.

- Printed Nintendo Gameboy Favor Box Template (best if printed on cardstock with 200gsm and up)
- Download the template from our freebie library and print it.
- Cut it out.
- Fold the parts where you can see the solid lines. Do this on both template (drawer and wrap)
- To create the box drawer. Apply some glue on each flap of the box drawer template. Fold and stick it to the sides to secure the box.
- Once you’re done sticking all the flaps on each side of the box drawer, fold the upper part of the template inwards to cover the flaps. Glue to secure.
- To assemble the box case, apply glue on the flap and stick it together with the bottom part of the case template.
- Make sure the flap is glued inside the case to have a neat-looking box case. Leave it out to dry.
- Insert the drawer to the case.
