Candy Wrapper Box with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is a Candy Wrapper Box that I demonstrated during this week’s Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live!

Here’s a different view:

And here’s what I fit inside (two tea lights!):

I’d like to credit both Samantha Clayton and Dee Copus-Reed for this idea! Samantha originally shared the idea and Dee made a few minor changes to make it easier to close. I decided to change the measurements to create a shorter version sized perfectly to fit 2 tea lights or a Ferrero Rocher or any number of things!

Here’s my video tutorial:

Here’s the template:

  1. what a great little box… super cute!.. thanks for sharing… I also saw your die storage method … it looks really neat and efficient… I am going to try this method.. do you store your dies that match some of your stamps using this method or with the stamps? I can see advantages to doing it either way but was wondering how you do it.. thank you.

  2. Terrific project! I am making these using the “welcome” sentiment to give our new staff members next week. I plan to fill with treats to welcome them!

Have a question or comment? I’d love to hear from you!
