how the boxes got made!
So I said I wanted to make some boxes, and on Saturday night/Sunday morning, I got to it!
I assembled my tools on the movie/football watching craft table downstairs (aka. the breakfast nook): holiday scrapbook paper, paper cutter, ruler and bone folder.
I pre-cut all of my paper… 1/2″ off of two sides of the top design paper, 1″ from the bottom sheets.
Then I got to folding! I opted to proceed with an assembly-line style… completing the first folds and piling them up. This helped things go much quicker… and made the “box” step lots of fun…. rather than the end to a tedious task.
It only took about an hour to finish up all of the boxes — 20 in total! Afterward, I added the band and the bows to a few boxes, and stopped when I ran out of staples.
I also bought some small candy wrappers at Target and 4 of them fit perfectly in each little box. Now I just have to figure out what delicious little truffles/candies to make to put in there!!! I know the infamous OREO truffles are one easy choice, but some of these recipes look pretty good too!
Wooooahhhhh!!! These turned out beautifully! Too cool for school. Where’d you get your paper? The polka dots are definitely my fave!
They look awesome!!! Makes me want to give it a try since you said it only took an hour! Yes, Yes, where did you get your cute paper???
Those are amazing! :)
Lots of truly excellent information here. People today need to realize that it’s not only great information that fuels the technological engine of our current culture, but additionally their own willingness to improve the way they think. You truly need to think laterally and outside the box if you intend to succeed or get ahead in life.
