Would you give directions for the box? What a cute idea!

Hmm. Let me see if I can describe it. It's very easy to do, but you sort of have to see it. If you are a demo, this candy holder is shown in the training video. What you do is take a half sheet of cardstock. Start at the narrow end and fold it up by 3/4". Then take the opposite end and fold it under the flap (like a matchbook). Crease it flat and then fold up the opposite end by 3/4". You will end up with a flat piece that is folded up towards the center on both ends. Now comes the tricky part. You are going to take the center crease (from your 2nd fold) and fold it back against itself and bring the free end around the other way and put it under the flap again. You will end up with a bottom that looks like a "W" and a top that looks like a matchbook. Then you tear the flap slightly and put a bit of contrasting color under it, come up with something to put on the front (I like the Tulips from Nice & Easy Notes, watercolored and matted) and staple a snack sized candy bar to the inside. Or you can put a cello bag with candy kisses or M&M's. Then punch some holes and thread a ribbon through to hold it shut and voila!
