Last year the day before Valentines I saw this adorable template for making a larger matchbox style paper box with matching candy wrappers to fill up the inside with. I quickly downloaded it, printed it out…and hit a roadblock. No matter what I did with the settings it was either too small or too large and I deleted it and gave up. (sidebar: I honestly don’t remember where I found it last year since I didn’t save it and I’m also quite positive the problems were with our old printer). So this year I wanted to do something similar to send my swap partners for the WB Valentine’s Swap…so I sat down with some scrap paper, a ruler, and a pencil. It took an hour or so…but I ended up with a box template that would hold 8 Hershey’s nuggets.
I went to work decorating the boxes and their chocolate cargo…and I think they turned out quite cute! Each includes a Shrinkey Dink magnet on the front with a familiar little bee for them to keep to remember their fun ‘bee times with for years to come. I hope they like them half as much as I enjoyed making them! 🙂
PS. I’ll be posting the templates & instructions for how to make your own matchbox style boxes later tonight 🙂
