This DIY Star Wars popcorn box project is sponsored by World Market, Sizzix, Kunin Group, Scotch/3M, Adorn-It, Expressionary.com, Udderly Smooth and Cre8time. I received free product but all ideas and opinions are my own. There are affiliate links in this post. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… well it wasn’t that long ago. I never watched the Star Wars movie as a kid. When the movies were re-released in the late 90s, I went to midnight showings with my college friends. With the new A Force Awakens movie coming out in December, I think a Star Wars movie marathon is in order. I made a special popcorn box for the occasion.
This Star Wars popcorn box is perfect for the 2015 Popcorn Box blog hop. You can see all the other popcorn box projects and enter a giveaway at the end of this post.
- popcorn box from World Market
- 2 8.5×11 pieces of black cardstock
- 1 sheet of yellow adhesive backed vinyl
- Scotch ATG with permanent adhesive
- transfer tape
- Silhouette Portrait
- Silhouette hook tool
- Silhouette scraper
- free cut file (see Step 1)
1. I downloaded the free Star Jedi font by Boba Fonts and used it to create the design for my popcorn box. You can download my design for personal use only below.
2. Trace half of the popcorn box on the black cardstock. After tracing the paper, label the sides of the popcorn box and the paper with letters so I could tell the different sides apart. Trace the other half of the box too.
3. I cut out extra paper on the right side of each piece of the black cardstock to help cover the seam of the box. I used my Scotch ATG and permanent adhesive to adhere the cardstock to my popcorn box.
4. Load the yellow adhesive backed vinyl into the Silhouette Portrait and cut it out using the Silhouette brand vinyl cut setting. I cut two of the design because I wanted to have the design on the front and back of my popcorn box.
5. Remove the excess vinyl from the design. Remove the inside of the letters R and A first and then work your way out. The Silhouette hook tool is useful in removing the small pieces.
6. Cut a piece of transfer paper the same size as your design. Use the Silhouette scraper or a credit card to burnish the transfer paper onto the vinyl sheet. Peel the transfer paper off the vinyl backing sheet which lifts the vinyl off the vinyl backing sheet. Apply the transfer paper to the popcorn box. Burnish again while supporting the inside with your hand. Then peel off the transfer paper. I added the vinyl design to the front and back of the popcorn box but you can add it to just the front or all four sides.

Haha This is such a fun blog hop. Who knew you could do so many things with popcorn boxes. I bet you’re excited for Dec 25th for the movie to come out!
I can’t wait for the new movie. Need to find the time to watch all the other movies before then.
