 Justrite Stampers,
Nestabilities: Labels One, Circle.
Cuttlebug embossing folder-- Swiss dots,
Post-it (3" x 3"), Ribbon, Candy..I used Hershey minis...
We will make the box first....Cut cardstock to 5-1/4" x 10-1/2". Score at 1/2" and 1" on all 4 sides.
I have marked the lines for better view..

Cut off the X marked portions....

Step 3:
Apply Scor-tape as shown...I love Scor-tape..its the best adhesive for these kind of projects..

Step 4:
Now fold carefully to make the box-base....and adhere

Cut Cardstock to 3"x 10 1/2" ...then score at 3-1/4", 3-3/4", 4-1/4", 6",6 1/2" and 7"...

Score at 1/2", 3-13/16, 4-3/8", 7-11/16" ..and apply scor-tape to the 1/2" part..

slide it on the box and then adhere the ends..for better fit.

Our box is lets fill it up with goodies..

Step 14:
Time for mini note cards.. Cut 4--- 3"x6" cardstock pieces..
score at 3" to make mini notecards..I embossed them with Swiss dot folders...
and add a strip of 1" x 3" Bo Bunny paper..

Step 15:

colored the image quickly with Copic Markers..
