Step 1

vertical with your paper cutter and score at 2
5/8".
Step 2
Turn your cardstock and score at 2 5/8", 5
1/4", 7 7/8" and 10 1/2".
Step 3
Fold all the score lines, and then cut on them to
make flaps along the bottom. Cut off the
smallest end piece.
Step 4
Center your Coluzzle" between the score
lines and the top of the box (I marked my
score lines with a black marker) on one of the
box side panels and cut out an oval.

Step 5
Centering your Coluzzle¯ over one of your
your patterned paper pieces, cut out a slightly
bigger oval from the center. You want the hole
to be bigger for matting purposes.
Step 6
Adhere your patterned paper pieces to the box
front and add some Sticky Strip" to the flap
on the end.
Optional:
Adhere a piece of Acetate on the inside box to
cover the window to keep loose treats from
falling out.
Step 7
Remove the red liner and adhere the box
together.

Step 8
With the box upside down and the oval facing
toward you, fold in the 2 side flaps.
Step 9
Add Sticky Strip¯ to the flap in the back of the
box (no oval), remove the liner and fold down
the front flap to finish the box.
Step 10
Score your 4 1/4" square piece of cardstock
at 3 1/2" on all sides.

Step 11
Cut on the right score line on each side,
creating flaps.
Step 12
Punch the edges off your square with the
scallop edge punch, but cut the scalloped
area off the flaps. You do not want them to
show under the other scallops.
Step 13
Using your craft knife, create slots in the top
of the lid. You could also use a punch if you
have one that works. Decorate as desired
using scrap cardstock and patterned paper.

Step 14
Add glue on the flaps to adhere the lid
together.
Step 15
Thread the ribbon through one slot, then go
under and around the box, threading it through
the other slot. Tie shut to hold the lid on.
Step 16
Decorate your box.
