A Box For The Snowmen

After I made a bunch of snowman tea lights (directions can be found here), I was trying to decide how to give them. I didn't want the nose to poke through anything, so I made a box!

 I added some iridescent shreds to the box to make it a little sparkly.

Too bad you can't leave the battery on when you give them. They might receive a snowman with a dead battery!

You want to know how to make the box?

  1. Cardstock for the bottom is 5-1/2" x 6-1/2".  Score all 4 sides at 1-3/4".
  2. Cardstock for the lid is 4-1/8" x 3-1/8".  Score all 4 sides at 1/2".
  3. Punch a hole in the lid and add a piece of Window Sheet behind.  If using the Decorative Label punch as I did here, you will need about 2-3/4" x 1-3/4" size Window Sheet.
  4. Designer Series Paper is cut 1-1/2" x 1-3/4" for the 2 short sides and 1-1/2" x 2-3/4" for the 2 long sides.
Finished box size is 2" x 3" x 1-3/4" tall.

Just three days left for the Online Extravaganza! 
The final day is November 28th and there will be three more items drastically reduced for that day only...Clear Block Bundle, Clear Blocks Storage Caddy and Stack & Store Caddy!

  17. Hi,
    I have printed and made several boxes but the score lines are so faint I can't get them to come out even.

    1. Hi Kathy, I am not sure what to tell you because I am only providing cutting measurements, not a printable document. Maybe adjust the dark/light setting on your copier??
