Clear Top Candy Box

Here’s a last minute Valentine’s idea that let’s the candy show through to be the star. Any small candy like Hershey’s kisses will work or use a stack of 3 Ghirardelli squares. The finished box is approximately 2” square by 1” high. It makes the perfect little treat to give your special friends on Valentine’s Day! If you want to make your own, just follow my tutorial below. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Clear Top Candy Box Tutorial

Step One: Box Base

1. Start with a piece of 4” x 4” cardstock. Score at the 1” and 3” mark. Turn your card stock one quarter turn and score at 1” and 3” again.

Step Two

2. Cut away card stock to create ½” tabs on each corner. Place a piece of double sided adhesive on each tab.

Step Three

3. Flip over. Fold piece inwards along all the score lines.

Step Four

4. Remove adhesive liner and bring sides together to form box.

Step Five: Clear Lid

5. Start with a piece of 3-15/16” x 3-15/16” piece of window sheet. Score in 1” on all four sides.

Step Six

6. Cut off all four corners along the score lines.

Step Seven

7. Fold piece along all score lines.

Step Eight

8. Place candy in the box base. Nest the clear lid with its sides tucked into the inside of the box.

Step Nine

9. Tie box with an 11” length of pretty ribbon. Note: The box will stay closed without the ribbon.

Step Ten

10. Decorate the rest of the box as desired.
