The easiest little box you can make!
Hello my friends! So are you ready for the holidays? I don't think I am so you may be getting some ideas from me in the next coming weeks while I prepare so let's get to it shall we?
First off, I promised a link to these awesome little kiss trees. Here is what those look like:
These are surprisingly easy to make and recommend watching this video. Brenda Quintana did such a great job teaching us this technique!
Cute right? I was shocked how easy this was to put together and have you seen all the different prints there are on Hershey Kisses?!? The skies the limit on this project!
So next, we need to look at the box that is so easy to make!
What I love about this box is the size and the very minimal supplies needed to construct.
- 5 1/4” x 6” piece of cardstock
- Paper cutter with scoring blade- I love using my SU cutter for this!
- Scissors- Paper Snips are my favorite.
- Tear & Tape Adhesive
- 3 Hershey’s® Nuggets® chocolate bars
- 3 1” x 3 ¼” pieces of cardstock or DSP
You will start with your 5 1/4" x 6″ piece of cardstock. Score across the longer side (Landscape mode) at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 4 1/2″, and 5 1/4″. Score across the shorter side (Portrait mode) at 3/4″, 2 1/4″, 3″, and 4 1/2″. See the picture above for reference.
Use scissors to remove the top left and top right sections. Cut the tabs on the score lines. The box goes together easier if the top and bottom tabs are trimmed on an angle as shown. See the picture below:
Next is folding on all the lines. I like to fold them in to start forming the box like so:
Next is the assembly of the box. Below is a picture of assembling one side, but I left the other side undone so you can see the difference. Note the placement of the adhesive:
And that is it! The fun part is decorating this little box of goodness which holds the 3 Nuggets. You will use the 3 pieces of your chosen DSP (Designers Series Paper) to wrap your candies before placing in the box. Here is a look at the finished product:
I added DSP around the outside of my box because this snow flake paper is so easy to use. This is a light weight DSP that is located in our annual catalog and included below in your supply list. I cut the paper at 3" x 6" and wrapped it around. What do you think? Easy? Need to make a couple dozen of your own? Yes, so easy for those little gifts to drop by for a neighbor, co-worker or unsuspecting friend! And who doesn't love a little chocolate. :)
I hope you enjoyed this project and please, let me know if you have any questions. Have fun my friends!
