I am making cookie boxes!!

So I wanted to give cookies as gifts to some friends this tear, but just giving cookies alone is kinda boring.. so I decided to use some of the amazing papers from my favorite paper store..(can you guess?)

Thats right!! the amazing paper temptress store !! I used various papers to make the boxes and the are super easy, I am even going to give you the recipe(cause I’m cool like that! 😉 )

so here we go

take two pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock . the first one you will cut into an 8 1/2 inch square and on all sides score at 2 1/4 and 6 1/4 like this, then cut on each horizontal fold up to the score line like this

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

next you will measure a 4x4inch square from the other sheet of card stock and then add a 1 1/2 in half circle to each side like this..then score along the fold lines

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

nest you will cut four half circles and fold them in half like this.. these will be the scalloped sides of your box

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now fold and glue everything together and you should end up with something like this

and an example of how to decorate you cookie box..

you can get as detailed or as simple as you like. on some of the boxes I simply stamped some Christmas images and a simple greeting. Then add cookies or treats to the inside and ta da.. a simple easy but wonderful gift!!
