Candy Box by Melissa Mann
Supplies: Wishful Day Paper (35610) - Daydreams, Pleasant Day Paper(35609) Daydreams, Chestnut (58409) - Premium Ribbon, Chipper (78061) - Details, Printed Variety Tags (77263) - Bits, Friends (42228) - Remarks; Other: Gift box, candy, baker's twine
Step 1: Assemble your candy box.
Step 2: Cut patterned paper to fit the sides and top of your box. I cut mine to 3" square.
Step 3: Adhere the paper to the sides of the box.
Step 4: Adhere a different patterned paper to the top and underside of the top of the box.
Step 5: Cut a piece of ribbon and adhere it to the bottom of the box.
Step 6: Cut 3" pieces of paper from the tearaway strip at the bottom of a patterned paper block and adhere them to the top rim of the box.
Step 7: Cut three strips of paper measured at 1.5 x 6" and fold them accordion style.
Step 8: Adhere each end of the folded piece to each other and create a circle.
Step 9: Punch out a piece of scrap cardstock and press the folded piece of paper down to create a circle then glue it in place.
Step 10: Gather a few embellishments. I picked out some Details, a piece of baker's twine, and a Bits tag.
Step 11: Thread your baker's twine through the tag then put a dot of glue down on the top of the box and stick the ends of the twine in it. Place your folded paper embellishment on top of this and adhere it with a strong adhesive.
Step 12: Punch out a circle of patterned paper and pick out a Detail. Glue down the circle on top of the folded paper embellishment and then adhere the Detail on top of that.
Step 13: Open the box up and fill it with candy.
