The Christmas candy box!

This is the How to for the Candy Boxes I've posted last week.

Let's get started, shall we?! 

First, grab a lovely printed paper that is a bit harder than usual office paper, so printed cardboard, size 31 x 19 centimeters. 

Every 5 cm of length and the bottom once fold it as shown on the picture.

For the bottom cut out small triangles. 

On that one centimeter that is left behind, apply double sided tape. And also on the bottom too (watch the picture above).

After that, you will give the box its shape. First tape the ends together and then take a deep breath and start folding the bottom ends together. Start with the one with no tape, then continue with the next and so on and so on (Be careful that you don't press to hard, because you won't be able to correct the shape if needed).

We are almost done, now you just need to press the two edges together on the top and make holes :)

Decorate and you're done :)


  1. This is nice! I might make this for Christmas as gift package for a little man I know! :)
