Easy Candy Box
Here is a super easy candy gift box. It holds 6 mini baking cups. This box is for my dad and will be filled with Chocolate Truffles with Sea Salt. Oh yum!
Items needed to create this
Solid cardstock 8 1/2x 6 1/2
Patterned cardstock 5 1/2 x 7 1/2
scissors or knife
Acetate if you plan to have a window
Here is a sketch for the bottom of the box.
The large piece is scored at 1 1/2 inches on all 4 sides.
Cut in on each side 1 1/2 inches.
Here is the sketch for the lid to the box.
This piece is scored at 1 inch on each side.
Cut in on each side 1 inch.
Here are my cut and scored pieces.
At this point I decided I wanted a window in the box top. I used the cuttlebug and my nesties to cut a window. You could very easily measure and cut with a knife or scissors as well.
All you need to do is glue the tabs and you have your box! I am going to cover my cut out with a sheet of acetate. I hope you have fun with this little box. It has huge possibilities. Let me know what you think!
