Easy Treat Boxes with a Template

Showing some easy treat boxes today - we made these in August and I had shared a quick picture - but have had some questions on measurements, etc.  So here goes. 
The boxes are made with 1/2 sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock cut 4.25"x10".  See template below - 
You are going to Score horizontally at 1" then turn score vertically at 1", 4.75", 5.75"and 9.5".  Placing the horizontal score toward the bottom you will cut up on each of the vertical score lines to the horizontal score line. I have darkened out a little triangle, as when you cut this way it is easier to fold the box together.  Note I also cut out the small rectangle at the right side bottom of the diagram. Then you will just score on all the score lines, place sticky strip as shown, and fold together.
You can see above after it is folded together you get a rectangle box with an open top.  We stamped, colored and fussy cut the flowers; and using the 1" strip we cut off the end at the beginning to make the length 10" - we stamped our sentiment.  Of course you can decorate as you choose.  Then pop in what ever goodie you like - and make someone's day.
Hope that helped a little bit.  These are quick and easy, and you can get two out of one sheet of cardstock - which is awesome.
