Cookie Box TutorialBy
How many of you give out a plate of cookies at Christmas?
HaHa!! I knew it – lots of you!!! Me too!
This year, let’s throw away those paper plates and plastic wrap and give cookies away in this!
I was able to fit a dozen cookies in this box – the dimensions are 2 3/4″ x 6 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ .
Here’s the step-by step instructions for you:
Stamp a 12″x 12″piece of cardstock as desired. I used Bravo Burgundy, Bells & Boughs stamp set and shimmer paint.
Score one side at 2 3/4″ and 9 1/4″; turn cardstock 90 degrees and score at 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″, 8 1/4″, and 11″.
Cut off the two un-neccessary thin ends.
Cut on all horizontal score lines up to intersecting score lines – this creates your side ends.
Cut off 1 3/4″ off set of 1st tab ends. This creates the box lid…
Round all 4 lid corners.
Create a 2 1/2″x 4 3/8″ rectrangular template; lay template on box top and trace; cut out with paper cutter.
Cut a piece of acetate sheet to 3 1/2″x 5 1/2″ and adhere to inside of box covering the window.
Fold on all score lines folding the acetate sheet as you go.
Apply double-sided tape to the last two tabs on each end as shown in photo above. Fold up box starting at far end and finished at box lid. Fold lid into box with tabs on the inside.
Decorate as desired…then send me a link or photo of your creation- I want to see!!!
