Tutorial - Candy Box

Today instead of posting a project, is one of those odd day that I am posting a tutorial of the candy box (see above) I made on my previous post. Before I continued, I would like to thank my daughter JASMINE who help taking some of these pictures for me. Thank you Jasmine and SMOOCH!!!!

Materials you need are:
Box bottom - 6 1/2" x 5 1/2" cardstock
Box cover/lid - 6 5/8 x 5 5/8" cardstock
Inner divider - 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" designer paper/patterned paper
Nugget wrapper - 3" x 1" designer paper/pattered paper (you need 9 pieces)
Acetate/plastic for see through box lid - 4 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Scrap color cardstock for flower punch of nuggets toppers

Any stamp set - I used the "Flying Kite Fhiona" from Your Next Stamp on my sample here.
Small circle, flower punches for nugget wrapper toppers and any border punch for decorating side edges of the box cover/lid.
A little cotton ball to add more dimension on the cloud images (optional)
9 pieces of Hershey Nuggets
Spellbinder/Nesibilities shape cutter - I am using a flower shape on this sample. If you don't have any cutter, that's ok, you just have to leave your box closed without a window as you wish, the recipient will also have fun opening your box and find the goodies inside without knowing by peeking through the acetate window of the box cover.
Standard tools - glue, adhesive tape, scissors, Scor-Pal, scor-tape/double sided tape, double sided foam dots.

*****Nugget wrappers*****
Step 1 - Take a piece of 3" x 1" designer paper/patterned paper and wrapped around a piece of nugget and adhere the edge on the bottom (see picture below on the left)

Step 2 - Stamped 9 small birdie image on a piece of white cardstock, colored them all.

Step 3 - Punched them out using the small circle punch.

Step 4 - Adhered them into a color cardstock which looks like a little "flower" (see left picture below).

Step 5 - put a foam dots on the back of each "flower" and adhered them on each wrapped nugget

Here is the finished look on each nugget.

*****Box Cover/Lid*****
Step 1 - Take the - 6 5/8 x 5 5/8" cardstock, score 1" on each side.

Step 2 - After score each side, run a shape cutter through the middle of the cover to create a flower shape opening (see the picture on right below)
Note: I didn't run mine right in the middle, but toward the top more because of the way I wanted to apply my images for decorations which I feel that would look nicer that way.

Step 3 - take the 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" acetate/plastic sheet and put double tape on each side of the acetate sheet, and adhere it to the back of the box lid. (see the pictures of the right below)

Step 4 - Cut open 4 corners according to the left pictures below and apply glue to put the box lid into the cover shape.

*****Box bottom part with inner divider*****
Step 1 - take the 6 1/2" x 5 1/2" cardstock and score 1" on each side

Step 2 - same as the box cover, cut a line on each 4 corner (see right picture below)

Step 3 - Same as the box cover, apply glue on the cut corner and glue them together to form a box shape.

Step 4 - put the 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" designer paper/patterned paper with long side across the top of your scoring tool, score at 1", 1 3/4", 2 1/2", 3 3/4", 4 1/2", 5 1/4" (see the left picture below)

Step 5 - fold along the scored lines in an accordion style (see the right picture below)

Step 6 - Glue the inner divider inside the box by putting scor-tape/double sided tape on the bottom of the inner divide (see left picture below), then add the nuggets inside.

*****To decorate the candy box*****
Stamped the images from your stamp set, colored and cut them out. In this case, I adhered little piece of cotton on top of the little cloud images just because I think a little puff of bluff would be cute. Just use foam dots and adhere each images on the box to decorate as you desire. I also add some punched borders around the side edges of the cover, but you can also replace that with ribbon or stickers.

Sorry for the length of this tutorial, but I hope you like what I prepared for you.
