Squash Box Treat Holder with Video Tutorial

I’m calling today’s project a Squash Box Treat Holder!

Here’s a view from the top:

Here’s what it looks like in the palm of my hand for a size reference:

And here’s a view from the side:

My project is inspired by THIS project created by Annika Flebbe. I converted the measurements and then decided to create a smaller size. I’ve included the original converted measurements below as well, so you can make this in 2 different sizes.

I’ve seen this project before, but it’s been a couple of years since I made it, so I’m not sure who’s project I followed then. For that box, I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to create the diagonal score lines, but it was a much bigger box than this one.

Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template I created:

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed weekend!
