This craft is made from FAV Shimmer Orange Fusion which is a gold infused orange. When it gets turned to the light it glows and shimmers. Shine Moss is a rich green shimmery cardstock paper that brings the box to life.
Candy Box Instructions:
This candy box is super fast and easy. Using the full 8.5″ X 11″ paper, divide the space into 4 equal parts along the length and score, using a bone folder. Refer to the photos. Score the paper 2.5″ down from the top and 2.5″ up from the bottom. A small plastic cup will give you fast circle shapes on the top part. Fold the paper accordion style and cut all the circles at once, coming down 2.5″, to the score line. Cut the bottom flaps, one at a time, up 2.5″, to the score line. Put ScorTape along the bottom flaps so they cover each other when folded.
Cut triangles from the Moss and use your favorite punch for a design, saving the cut out to add to the design. The triangles were added last, with one being used to hold the side shut. Glue leaves on the top of the candy box and add two holes for some matching green ribbon to hold the top closed.
Fold along all the score lines, then tape the cardstock candy box together. Make some more and add some candy, for a great table decoration and a keepsake for the guests . Enjoy.
To keep this project perfect for any event, just mix up your cardstock paper to match your theme, change your accent art and you are ready to go.
