micro Santa cookie box

santa-micro-box-diane-zechman.jpgHere’s another project that I just haven’t had time to share yet.  I made this micro sized Santa box as a large group Make & Take several weeks ago.  I was set out to make them larger, but at the last minute I realized that I was running low on red paper.  eek!  So I micro-sized my boxes and I think they turned out kinda cute!  They are only 3 1/4″ tall when finished.  And they hold one of those Keebler 100 calorie packs of Right Bites cookies rather nicely if you open the package and wrap them with some plastic wrap.  :0)  (They also hold mini size candy bars).

This box is made just like the 2-4-6-8 boxes, only I started with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock (a quarter sheet).  Then I scored the long side at 1″, 2 1/2″, 3 1/2″, and 5″.  Next, turn it 90 degrees and score the short side at 1″.  After scoring, cut and fold as shown in the diagram below (click to enlarge).  Cut on the red lines.  The yellow section will be removed.  Attach sides and bottom with strong adhesive.


To finish it off, I cut a strip of black for a belt that would fit through the die-cut buckle and added some buttons.  The Sizzix Bread Tag was cut a little shorter than the diecut size and stamped with images from my Annabelle set.

Check back tomorrow for another Christmas card I forgot to upload- oops!
