"Mint Boxes"


I made these cute little boxes the other day and was trying to figure out what to put in them. I tried two peppermint patty sammiches and they fit perfectly. Woo Hoo!! The boxes are super easy to make too. Cut card stock for the bottom 4 x 4 and score 1 & 1/16 inch all around. Cut pattern paper for the lid 3 x 3 score 1/2 inch all around. For the lid I took a 1 3/8 square punch and punched out the center. Because of this size cover, you can put the punch in all the way and it will be perfectly centered. I cut the acetate for the middle insert 2 x 2. Adhere the acetate to the underside of the lid then cut the flaps on the top and bottom and put it together to form a box and lid. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. LOL
Here is a link to the directions as well.
Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Pacific Point Designer Prints
Ink: Pacific Point
Accessories: Scor-Pal, Acetate, Square Punch, SU Scallop Punch, SU Circle Punch, Glue Dots, York Peppermint Patty, Bling
