WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • Thick white, printable card stock or thick glossy photo paper (2 per box)
  • Color printer
  • White string
  • X-acto knife/scalpel
  • Ruler
  • Cutting board
  • Double-sided tape or glue
  • Candy
  • Paper/plastic bag or wrapping to hold the candy

WHAT TO DO

Download the PDF (below). The box comes in two sections. One side should fit snugly into the other to close.

Print out both sections of the candy box onto 2 pieces of thick white card stock. (The thicker the card, the more expensive, but the better the result, in my opinion.) You can also use glossy photo paper if you would prefer a shinier texture.

Use your x-acto knife to score gently from dotted line to dotted line (where the folds will be).

Use your knife, ruler and cuttting board to cut them out.

For each section, fold along score lines then stick ends together with double-sided tape or glue. (My preference is for double-sided tape- clean and simple. I just love the stuff.)

To make sure the boxes hold together, tie string to the ends of each section

Put your candy in a small paper/plastic bag or wrap and secure. Stick the candy into the section withoutthe ‘candy’ wording. Slide this section into the end of the other section to create your completed box.

Crochet Gif Tutorials: Puff Stitch

The version of the puff stitch I’ve demonstrated here is a ‘7 loop puff’ (7 loops on your hook before you wrap the yarn over and pull through them all). This is probably the most common type of puff, but there can be a lot of variation between patterns. Sometimes they’ll require a 9 loops or 5 loops for more or less puffiness. Patterns will generally tell you how many loops to do, but if they don’t, I’d say 7 is pretty standard, or pick the puff level you like best.

Also, some patterns count the securing chain as a stitch on its own rather than as part of the puff - check your pattern so you don’t accidentally do it twice!

The trick with the puff stitch is to keep your yarn nice and loose.
Good luck! XX
