It sure was fun to show everyone how to make an easy to make box that doesn’t need a template or a die. We also shared a quick gift you can give as a tip to someone like your mail carrier or UPS driver.

No Shaking Here!

Just want to lay your minds at ease. We didn’t have any shaking where we live in Northern California. We’re about 175 miles from where the earthquake was. But Ann’s friends that they travelled to Europe with live in Eureka and lost power for several hours.

Thanks for asking! Ann was up typing my pupographic messages so we know we didn’t feel it here. But it sure messed up the Eureka , California area.

So we should ask you…

We’ve always loved this small box you can make without a template or die. Ann’s been making it over 20 years and you can fill it with lots of things:

  • Gift Card
  • Quiet Money
  • Jewelry
  • Hair barettes
  • Candy
  • and of course, dog treats.

In the back is a candy bar that we decorated to give some of the people who deliver things to us.

Easy to Make Box Video

You can watch how we did it here on YouTube or watch it below.

Tips to Make These Projects:

  • The box is made with 2 half sheets of card stock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
    • The bottom is cut 1/8″ smaller than the top 5-3/8″ x 8-3/8″
    • You can also make it with patterned paper but it’s less sturdy.
  • The regular sized Hershey candy bar paper is 5-3/4″ square.
  • More tips are in the video.

The Designer Series Paper is sold out, but I’ve listed a comparable one in the supplies that is on sale on the Last Chance List. We’ve also listed a couple options you can use for the tags. And yes, she added a Red Rhinestone in the box because we’re using it to give a gift card to a special young lady.

But I’ll bet that you’d like to know what we used for supplies.
