All My Love Triangle box

My friend Janey Backer  created this cute box. It’s quite large and easily holds 8-10 Hershey’s kisses.

I'm using the All My Love paper and matching Be Mine Heart Dies and the ribbon.  

1.Cut the base in designer paper or  cardstock 8 x 4
2.Score on the long side at 4”
3.Now score with the short side on top, find the middle (2”) and score from there to the 4” score line on the diagonal. Do this 4 times.  You could use your trimmer with the scorer or a ruler and stylus.

I’m showing you this in Bermuda Bay with the score lines in pink sharpie so you can see

4.Burnish your folds
5.Punch 4 holes at the top, do 1 at about ½ “ done and ½” in and then use this as a guide for the other holes
6.Put your candy inside, and add the ribbon – can you see how I threaded it?

I used the Lovely Lipstick about 14”

7.If you want you bow to end up parallel to the box, tied the know the opposite way – perpendicular. Now tie the bow
8.See how it lies in the opposite direction to the knot? Handy tip ! and then  trim the ends (it’s a bit of a waste but so much easier to have longer ribbon to tie a nice bow. And I left the waste so you can see it's not that much!

9.Decorate the front – I used the Me Mine hearts dies.  No greeting.  But I could easily add one. 

And here is our box – will you make one? Lots? You can get 4 from 1 piece of 12 x 12 paper!
