The Last of Valentine's Day...I think :)

Hannah had some "special" valentine's that she wanted to have for her friends that weren't in her class so we created boxes for a lot of Pixie Sticks (SUGAR)!  These boxes are 2" wide and a 1/2" thick and are perfect for lots of small items!
Start with a 8" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock.  Score along the 8" long side at 1/2" (this will be the bottom of the box).  Rotate the paper (so the paper ends at 5 1/2") then score at 1/2", 2 1/2", 3", then at 5".  Fold on all score marks.  Cut up to the 1/2" score mark along the 8" side to form tabs.  Place adhesive on one flap of the longer tab and along one of the 1/2" sides.  Fold and adhere.  Pinch the sides in half near the top of the box and punch two holes and tie twine to keep it closed!

Paper: Love Nest (My Mind's Eye)
