Valentine's Day Treat Box

Check out this cute little Valentine Nugget!!  This adorable little box is simple to make and is a perfect size for Valentine's Treats!  It holds 3 (you could probably squeeze 4) Hershey's Nuggets.  You can watch the video below for a step by step tutorial on how to create it:
Here are the measurements and supply list:
You need to start with a piece of cardstock or DSP that measures 5" X 6".  With the 6" side at the top of your Simply Scored Tool score it at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4" and 5 1/2".  Turn it 90 degrees, so now the 5" side is along the top of your score board.  Score it at 1" and 4".  That's it for scoring.  Looking at your card stock, with the 6" at the top you will see your 1/2" strip along the right.  You want to trim all of the score lines at the bottom (this will be the bottom of your box) up to the next score line.  Then remove the small rectangle on the right hand side that measures 1/2" X 1".  Now for the top of your box you again want to trim up all those score lines.  This time you will remove that small rectangle again, but also the two squares that are formed as well.  This should leave you with two rectangle pieces at the top of your box. 
Looking at your card stock again, with the 1/2" strip along the right side you are looking at the basics for your box.  On the left hand side you will see the 1" strip, the rectangle next to that will technically be the front of the box.  If you want to run a framelit through or punch as I did in the box above, now is the time to do that before you put your box together.  Once you have done that it's time to assemble it.  Put a piece of sticky strip along the small 1/2" rectangle on the right hand side.  Fold it over to attach to the other flap.  Then put sticky strip on the front flap of the bottom of the box and fold those over closing the bottom up.  Now with a pointer finger on either side of your box, pinch and close the top of your box like a bag.  Now you can insert your two tabs into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Be sure it is pushed in all the way and lined up evenly on both sides.  Punch.  You can then take a piece of ribbon and make a loop to hold the top of the box together after you fill it with your Nuggets!  Super simple and takes very little cardstock!

  1. Wow, wonderful project and great directions. Thank you

  2. Hi Brianna. Love the project. Got it all together except for the top scalloped punch. Do you have any tricks for getting the top of the box into the punch? By the time I had mine anywhere near the top (not quite close enough to get the scallop and even that took repeated attempts) the box was a mushed mess. Sigh...maybe my new punch is tighter than yours? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

    1. Yay...figured out an alternative. Punch the two top sections before assembling the box or making the top cuts. Now it works. Love it!

    2. I'm sorry to hear you weren't able to get the top of the box into the punch, but I'm glad to hear you were able to get it figured out a different way. The best advice I could give you to get it in the punch together is to squeeze the sides together and flatten the top of the box well before you slide it into the punch. But of course the way that you did it will work just as well!!! Enjoy!
