Super Saturday: Super Candy Cane Christmas from Stampin' Up! Box

How about this super cool, tall box to fill with treats this holiday season? Found the directions on a stamping friend's blog, Sharon Johnson.
You’ll need 12 x 12 designer paper... full sheet for the box bottom and 1/2 sheet for the box top.

Box Bottom, using a full 12 x 12″ sheet:

Score at 2 3/4″, repeating at 2 3/4″ intervals. You will have four score lines with a 1" tab left to adhere the box together.

Turn the paper and score once at 2 3/4″.

Cut your slits as you would for any box, removing the narrow piece under the tab.

Fold and adhere box bottom and sides together using Sticky Strip.

Box Top, using a 6 x 12″ piece:

The box top needs to be slightly larger than the box bottom for a smooth fit. Score the box top at 2 7/8" intervals along the long side. Turn and score at 2 7/8" on the short side. Cut slits and adhere box top together.

I tied a piece of "retired" Stampin' Up! ribbon around the top and created a tag with the Two Tags Die embellished with the snowflake stamp from Winter Post and a Big Designer Button in Real Red.

This would be a great box to give filled with votive candles or wrapped candies. Create yours now and be ready for the season of giving!
