These bon-bon boxes are the perfect present to hold a special treat. Decorate them for any holiday or birthday! You can change the box size to fit any size bon-bons.
We will be making a 2” cube bon-bon box and are therefore starting with a piece of cardstock
Since we are making a 2” cubed bon-bon box, we will now need to score our cardstock so
Your piece of cardstock should now look exactly like the picture to the right, comprised of 9 sections, similar to a tic-tac-toe board.
Score lines from each of the inside corners to the outside corners of your cardstock as
Your finished piece should look like the finished picture in 4B.
Fold in each of the corners as shown in 4C.
Your finished bon-bon box should now look like the example in 4D.
To figure out the size of your lid, just measure the bottom of your box, which if done correctly
Taking our 4 1/16” square piece of cardstock, we will now need to score the lines to define the depth of our lid. Because we have already determined the depth of our lid in figuring out what cardstock size to start with we know that it will be 1 inch deep. Score the 2nd line down on the “Box Lid’ portion of the board on all 4 sides of your cardstock. We know it’s the 2nd line down because each line represents 1/2” in measurement and therefore 2 lines down equals 1 inch.
Your piece of cardstock should now look like the example to the right. Follow the rest of the directions in your instruction booklet to finish off your lid.
Once you’ve finished your lid you will fold in the sides of your box and put the lid over top.
To make bon-bon boxes bigger than what I’ve detailed previously you will still need to follow the basic rule of tripling the finished cube size of your box (ie. To make a 4” cube box you need to start with a piece of cardstock that is 12” Square (4 inches x 3 = 12 inches)). The next all important step is to make sure that a scoreline exists on the board to score the dimension in “Step 2” of these directions. In the case of a 4” box, you would use the line labeled “Half-Fold 8x8” on the card making side of the board.
