Pencil/post it note holder

  • Cardstock 5 .75 x 12
  • Score on the short side at .5, 1, 4.75 and 5.25
  • Score on the long side at 2, 2.5, 6, 9.5, 10.5 and 11.5
  • Trim out the long side panels starting from the end with the three score lines that are 1 in apart
  • Cut off one tab and miter cut the other one
  • Put tear and tape on the two ends
  • Fold your box and adhere the back put tear and tape on the back accordion flap
  • Cut 1.5 in off the discarded strip and score at .5 and 1 this is for your pencil
  • Adhere DSP to the inside back of the box cut 3.5 x 3.25
  • Add the piece for the pencil holder
  • Adhere the DSP to the front as well cut 3.5 x 1.75

Acetate box

  • Cut the box in half at 4
  • DSP is cut 4 7/16, not quite 4 ½ x 5 – needs to be a little smaller to fit in the box
  • Score at 1.5 and 2
  • Can add Hershey nuggets fit 9, three rows of three

Bag Toppers

  • Cardstock cut 4.25 x 3.5 score at 1 ¾

Custom size box and how to figure out the size

  • Measure what you want to put in the box, in this case it was 5.5 x 6.5, so I went with 7 x 7 – keeping it square is best
  • Most boxes can be scored at 1.5 for the depth of the box – you simply add 1.5 x 2 for 3 plus 7 so box base would be 10 x 10
  • Top of the box you want scored smaller, I usually do 1 inch so you follow the same concept 1 x 2 plus 7 for 9 x 9 but allow a 1/8 bigger for it to fit just right on the box, so 9 1/8 x 9 1/8 then score at 1 inch on all sides and assemble

Here is the complete list of supplies that I used on these projects:
