I love a good treat box (even more so when it’s super easy to make and it has a lab on it)!
I don’t remember where I originally saw the idea for this box but after I had made a few I started reciting “punch and score at two and four” each time and now that little rhyme sticks in my head and I can make these without having to worry about figuring out measurements or using any special dies.
All you need is a 6×6 piece of paper and an envelope punch board. And then just follow the rhyme and punch and score at two and four!
When you’re done with all the punching and scoring, just fold along all the score lines (or don’t – I’ve tried it both ways and either works). You’re paper should now look like this:
Now just trim flaps like the picture below. It’s pretty forgiving so if you happen to cut the wrong side, you won’t be able to tell once everything is put together. Now is also the time to round the corners of each top flap if you want to and add holes for ribbon. You don’t actually need holes on all four – just two will do. Add some strong adhesive to each flap and you’re ready to assemble!
And certainly don’t forget to fill it with some treats before you tie the ribbon on top! Anything chocolate is top on my list!
