Ninth Day of Christmas-Top Note Mini Treat Box

And here are the instructions:

Step 1: Cut cardstock to 8x 5 1/2" and score at 1", 3 1/2", 4 1/2" and 7".

Step 2: Then score at 1" on the other two ends.

Step 3: After scoring, cut the little score lines on each side up to the 1" mark to make flaps.

(first picture)

Step 4: You will take the other half of the cardstock that you cut for the box and fold it half as you would for a card and place it on the Top Note Die just to the inside edge(see next picure) so you will have a folded top note "card". Once you have done this, cut it in half (on the score line).

Step 5: Assemble the box.

Step 6: Take the two Top Note pieces and add eyelets and ribbon. If you want to stamp on it do so now before adhering to the box. If not continue on...by adding sticky strip tape to the Top Note pieces (this is what your box is going to stick too.)

Step 7: Finish decorating and viola! You have the cutest little treat box.
