Cute Candy Box! Tutorial

Dressing up candy is always fun to do and fun for those who receive it!! And it's always nice to have something that isn't very expensive but yet brings a smile to someones face.

For box bottom
Cut card stock 4-1/2" x 3-3/8"
Score on all sides at 1"
On the short side clip the vertical score lines up to the horizontal score line.
Turn and repeat for other end.
Fold in all the score lines.
Fold in and glue the small flaps that you just created from clipping and set aside.

For the lid
Cut the card stock 3" x 4"
Score at 3/4" on all sides
Using the Scallop Punch, punch all around the entire piece.
On the short side clip the vertical score lines up to the horizontal score line.
Turn and repeat for other end.
Fold in all the score lines.
Fold in and glue the small flaps that you just created from clipping. You will need to trim up the ends, the scallops are not going to match completely and if they do you are REALLY good at using that punch!!! LOL

Decorate your lid as desired! I had found some snowflake stickers and just added them to the top of the box. I wanted to do a little snowman and some small stamped trees but that big ole ribbon would cover it all so I just went with the snowflakes. I do have several small snowflake stamps I could have used too but I found the stickers first!! LOL I liked adding the big bow because it just looked so cute on the small box. It somehow cutened it up!!! LOL

This is a great way to dress up that little candy bar to set on co-worker's desks, for the kids to give to friends and teachers, etc. The ideas for this are endless.

Thanks SO much for stopping by,
Wanda
