Sweet Treat

Isn't this cute? It is a modified 2-4-6-8 box. Here's how I made it:
Cut a piece of transparency so it is 4 1/4" x 10" (You could make it taller or shorter by changing the 4 1/4" measurement)
Score at every 2" along the 10" side. You will need to use your bone folder to fold sides in after scoring as it is tough to fold.
Use a small amount of snail on the 2 ends and fold into a box and stick sides together (one will completely overlap)
For the base and top do 2 of these:
3" x 3" piece of cardstock or paper
Score at 1/2" along each side. *A little less than 1/2" is better than a little more. If it's scored too small then it will not fit.*
On 2 opposite sides cut along the 2 small score lines
Fold edges in. Put a small amount of snail on the small flaps and tuck them inside.
Use one as the top and one as the bottom of the box. I adhered the bottom one on with some snail.
Hershey Kisses are quite heavy. A lighter weight candy may work a little better but the bottom still sticks even with the kisses.
I decorated with some ribbon, a tag, and the new heart punch. All done in Real Red and Silver cardstock. "Love" is stamped in silver.
