The Wood Crate Candy Box pictured features the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack: a whole pile of Neutral wood-look backgrounds! Neutrals go with anything, so you’ll have an almost unlimited number of Color Combinations to play with!!
The sliced trees pattern caught my eye for my original plan to fill the Crate with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Then I realized that, since I keep the Peanut Butter Cups in the freezer, I would run the risk of getting my Crate wet when the candy thawed. I changed to room-temperature Starburst Fruit Chews to avoid unsightly spots.
Incidental Tip: If you want to fill the box with unwrapped candies, as a place setting favor for example, cut two or three Scalloped Circles from waxed paper with the largest of the Layering Circles Framelits™ Dies. Line the Crate with the Circles first, then put in your candy.
The Wood Crate box is easy to assemble. Die-cut two of the box pieces, then fold along all score lines. If you find the score lines are too faint, shim with a piece of paper or use a Stylus and ruler to define them. You may also use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to define the lines. Crease well with a Bone Folder.
Open out the flaps and apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to the “outside” of each one on both box pieces. Also apply Tear & Tape around the edges of one box bottom, again on the “outside”. Remove the backing on the box bottom adhesive and lay the non-adhesived piece on top with the box sides facing away from each other. The overlapping box bottoms add strength so the box holds up when filled. Remove the backing on the flaps and finish assembling the box.
The Wood Crate Framelits Dies include several shapes you can use for embellishments. The Rooster is shown in the photo. There is also a Tag Die. You can use it for a gift tag or as a place card for my party favor suggestion.
