The template is super simple to use – all you need is Adobe Acrobat Reader (which you can get for free here if you don’t have it already). Then just type your wording in the template, print on cardstock and trim using the cropmarks as a guide.
Please keep in mind that in order for the personalized portion of the template to work on all computers, a standard font needed to be used.
Thick white, printable card stock or thick glossy photo paper (2 per box)
Double-sided tape or glue
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.
