Since the girls are in school, I decided to create. I had seen a box like this before while I was blurfing one night and thought it was super cute. I tried Di's tutorial and I think her measurements were wrong at the beginning, cause mine didn't look good at all. It was too short. So I created my own and made it just a bit taller. Here are my directions for this box along with two pictures of two of the steps. Check out Diana's blog for step by step directions to make this.
Cut Cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.
Score on the long side at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 3 3/4", and 5".
Score on the short side at 1 1/4".
Turn 180 degrees and score the other end at 1 3/4" and 1/2".
Cut out the corners so it looks like this picture. Then cut the bottom three and the top two short lines down to the first scor lines on the top and bottom to make the flaps so that you can fold them to close the box.
Round the corners so that when you close the top the sides go in better. It isn't necessary but it does help. Then take your word window and make a couple punches to make a tall window. If you want to use small candy like M&M's you will need to put an acetate sheet inside before you assemble the box so they don't fall out. I used Hershey Kisses and didn't use an acetate sheet. Clear as mud?? I used Scor-Tape to put it together and to add the pattern paper trim around the top and bottom.
*Di's tutorial has been corrected so her measurements are right on now.*
