To create a Quick and Easy Candy Box for your favorite Trick or Treaters.
Begin first cutting a the width of pattern paper that will fit the candy box you have; add 1″. (This will be the backing for your candy box)
Lay candy box on top and fold over at top and bottom. Adhere box of candy to paper backing. (Each box of candy will be different so sizing will need to be adjusted slightly.)
Cover the top of the candy box by cutting the width plus 1″ and the length of box from pattern paper; decorate with strips of paper. Adhere to flaps on back of prepared paper. Layer two strips of pattern paper and score to fit around covered box to create a wrap to hold the covers together.
Add matted Epherema Cards to top of wrap.
Add bow, enamel dot and small metal brad to finish your candy box. These would also make fabulous party treats, special gifts to friends and family; etc. You could also add a gift card inside the back of front flap for a fun surprise! Your own imagination will go into overload when you start creating these Quick and Easy Candy Boxes. Remember to use other Authentique Collections to create other special candy boxes with. Pam
