I made this treat box today added tissue paper and filled it with store bought chocolate covered pretzels for a gift. The box design I cased from Andrea Walford. She is so talented!

Here's the instructions for the box:

2 - sheets of 12" x 12" cardstock

For the bottom:

  1. Cut 1/16" off 1 side and rotate 1/4 turn and cut 1/16" off again. This will ensure the bottom is a smidgen smaller and the top will fit.
  2. Score at 2-3/4" and again at 9-1/4"
  3. Rotate and score at 2-3/4" and 9-1/4"
  4. Cut on 2 score lines to where the scores intersect, then repeat on the opposite side.
  5. Adhere flaps to inside of box with Sticky Strip. Snail does not hold very well if there's much weight in the box.

For the Top:

  1. Same as for the bottom, except do not cut the cardstock. Use the full 12" x 12" sheet.
  2. Score at 2-3/4" and again at 9-1/4"
  3. Rotate and score at 2-3/4" and 9-1/4"
  4. Cut on 2 score lines to where the scores intersect, then repeat on the opposite side.
  5. Adhere flaps to inside of box with Sticky Strip. Snail does not hold very well.

I hope your enjoying your weekend!
