Ok. Here's what I did. I used the mini envelope template. I traced the envelope once on cardstock without the flap and once on designer paper with the flap. Instead of making envelopes, I attached the side flaps together to make the sides of the little box. I scored the flap to make a top and a flap lid for the box. The circle is attached with a little piece of sticky strip to the body of the box so that the flap can slip under it to hold it closed. It is so simple!
One tip, though: don't cut the slanted ends on the flaps as steep as they are in the template or you will have holes in the sides at each corner. When you trace it to cut just make the lines a little closer to 90 degrees.
This box fits a miniture chocolate bar--if it doesn't get swiped while you aren't looking LOL.
