A few weeks ago I posted a similar Christmas treat box. My original post with the story behind it can be found here.
I spent some time this week working up a tutorial video that demonstrates my version of this treat box starting with a 8.5 x 11 inch piece of cardstock.
I have not made many of these videos and as a perfectionist, they are never quite what I want them to be but I figured it would still be helpful. I hope you enjoy the video and it helps you make your own cute little boxes.
Here is more helpful information for the box. This will make sense after watching the video.
Starting with a 7 3/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock…
On the short side (7 3/4” side):
Score at 1/2″ 1 7/8″ 5 7/8″ 7 1/4″
On the long side (11” side):
Score at 1/2″ 1 7/8″ 3 1/4″ 4 5/8″ 8 3/8″ 10 3/4″
Also score at 6” to 2nd line from both ends.
Then turn the paper 90 degrees counter clockwise, then score at 1 1/4 to 2nd line.
Score marks should look like this:
And this is probably the most helpful visual- the actual template on top of the score lines. Use this as a guide to know what to cut away.
I have decorated this box using the Cookie Cutter Christmas and Candy Cane Christmas stamp sets paired with the Presents and Pinecones DSP.
On the back, I created a decorated panel for the message:
Here are the measurements given in the video for the pieces of paper that I covered the box with.
Small Squares: 1 1/4” x 1 1/4” (cut 2)
Box top and front: 1 1/4” x 3 7/8” (cut 2)
Main panel (behind Santa) : 2 1/4” x 3 7/8”
Back Message panel: 3 5/8” x 3 7/8”
I hope all of that information makes sense and that you enjoy making your own. If you grab a scrap piece (a generic piece) of cardstock or 2 and follow along with the video, I think you’ll have an easy time of it.
This box has become a big hit at my house and my two boys have made an assortment of them.
