When you think of a box of candy, do you think frills and fluff? Not that that’s a bad thing, but how about a little vintage chic, or some might call it a masculine bit of sweetness.
This is a candy box that six Nugget-type candies can fit into. I made this box with one sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ Brown Bag paper, Blissful patterned paper from Paper Made Bakery’s January Fresh Baked Kit and some fun embellishments we’ll chat about in a minute.

I learned how to make these boxes when I bought my first Scor-Pal. For the six-piece candy box’s bottom cut a 5.75″ x 6″ piece from the Brown Bag cardstock. For the lid, cut a 8.625″ x 3.25″ piece from the same cardstock. To make the bottom score the cardstock at .75″ and 1.5″ on each side (rotate the cardstock and score at these measurements on all four sides). Bend at the score lines and cut away the three squares at each corner and create tabs like shown. I always trim the tabs just a hair to help them fit under the flap. Place a little adhesive on each flap, fold over the first section of each side, then fold over with the sticky tab in between. Here I used white paper to help illustrate the score lines, folds and tabs:
Once the box bottom is made you can either leave it just like it is or have some fun decorating the inside. Remember, you’ll place those tasty chocolates inside, but why not leave something pretty to look at after the candy’s gone?
