Treat Box Card Template
If you have trouble reading or printing the template use these measurements:
Start with a 6 1/2" x 11 3/4" piece of cardstock. Score your 6 1/2" side at 3/4" and 5 3/4". Score your 11 3/4" side at 3 1/2", 7", 8 1/2", 9 1/4", 10 3/4" and 11 1/2".
Trim 3/4" from each of the longest sides up to the first base flaps of the box.
Crease the cardstock at the score lines. Create the end tabs by cutting the 3/4" extensions on each side of the box up to the score line, and totally removing the smallest end tab.
Remove a diagonal piece of cardstock from the opposite end of the box. This will create your front flap.The diagonal line should go from approximately the center of the flap down to the score line.
Cover the inside of the card with decorative paper.
Use a decorative punch to make a window in the top of the box. Use a punch that is 1” or smaller to keep your box stable.
Apply adhesive to the 1/4" fold of the box end. Fold over following score lines to form the box.
Cover the front flap of card and embellish remainder of Treat Box Card as desired. Fill box with treats and secure top and bottom flaps with adhesive.
