This was a make and take I designed for a workshop in early February. I knew I wanted to make some to swap at convention, so I bought a huge bag of candy hearts on Valentine's Day. I figured if they retired Year Round Fun 2, I would make due with another heart stamp or let my son and hubby eat them. (-:

Very cute, I would love the dimensions for this also if you have them. Thanks. Hope convention is fun. I went last year and had a great time. Got a chance to go onstage and play the game they had. That was fun after I got over being scared. LOL. Have fun.

I did not use a template to make this. It's so easy to make it with our c.s. And if you use 12x12, you get 8 per sheet with NO scrap!
The box is 3 wide x 6 long." (But you can make it as little or as big as you want. Just make sure it is twice as long as it is wide.)
Fold it in half lengthwise, so it is now a 3" square. Flatten it back out.
Now you want to make a score marks from the center of each end (ie at 1-1/2" since it is 3" wide) to the fold you just made.
Fold along these score marksm, fold it back up in the middle, and viola, you have the box! The ribbon holds it together, so you don't even need adhesive.
As for the circle window, just push the paper into the 1-3/8" circle punch so that the hole is slightly above the center fold mark you made. You want to come in from the side, not from the top. The width (3") is such that if you push the paper all the way to the punch, the circle will be centered. (-:
RE: Jen - well, so I wouldn't eat them, I vacuum-sealed them into a large bag. Big mistake. I had one HUGE mound of candy, ALL STUCK TOGETHER. It took a while to pull them apart, and there were many casualties. (-:
