These boxes are so cute! so easy to make. They will hold two pieces of Ghirardelli Chocolate Candy or two pieces of ‘Fun Bar Size’-Candy Bars! These are done in Real Red and Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock.
Here is the template showing the cuts and the scoring done. The whole box is a piece of card stock 6 1/2″ X 4 1/2″. Scored on all sides at 1/2″ also scored at 3″ and 3 1/2″. Fold, Clip, Glue corners, put together and you have a sweet little trinket box, it also holds gift cards perfectly.
This is what the box looks like after folding, scoring and clipping.
Here is the box with corners glued (or you can use Fast Fuse).
Here are some ideas to decorate the outside:
On this one above I added a belly band using a 1 1/2″ piece of Sending Love Designers Series Paper Stack. Folded to fit around sides and glued together in the middle. Next I wrapped twice a piece of Thick Whisper White Baker Twine and fastened in the middle (under the heart). Basic layer under heart is the Whisper White Side of the Lace Doilies (Occasions Catalog). The die cut real red heart used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets die. I then glued the die cut Real Red Heart to a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and ‘fussy cut’ around the heart. The flowery heart is stamped in Real Red using the Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set. I then die cut again using the Sunshine Wishes Heart die and inserted the middle and glued into place! The little Arrow was die cut using Love Notes Framelits Die Cuts and the sentiment was stamped in Real Rd on Whisper White from the Sealed with Love Stamp Set and tried down to fit on arrow.
This little beauty was finished by a belly band of Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock, topped by a piece of the lovely Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim. I turned the doily over and used the Very Vanilla Side of the Lace Doily out. Using Sweet Sugarplum Ink I stamped the heart from the Bloomin Love Stamp Set on Very Vanilla Card Stock, smudged the edge using a Sponge Dauber and Sweet Sugarplum Ink Pad. The Arrow is die cut from the Love Notes Framelits Set, the sentiment stamped in Sweet Sugarplum on a scrap of Blushing Bride Card Stock, die cut using the little scalloped note die from the Love Notes Framelits Set.
Here are the different uses for this little box.
