I have included a tutorial to show you the steps that I used to make the boxes. You will need a scoring tool or scoring blade, some sticky strip, a crop-a-dile or hole punch and some ribbon. And of course some fun Doodlebug supplies to dress them up and the popcorn and gift card (if desired).
Take a 6x 9 inch piece of paper and on the 9 inch side score the paper at 3 3/4, 4 1/4 , 8 and 8 1/2 inches.
Fold the paper on the scored marks and add sticky strip on the edge as shown.
Fold the box up as shown.
Using a hole punch, punch a hole about 1/4 an inch down from the top and in the middle. Squeeze the paper together and punch both sides at the same time.
Take a piece of 24 inch ribbon and lace the 2 ends through the holes you punched.
Add the gift card to the popcorn. Place the popcorn into the center of the ribbon and push the popcorn all the way down until it is covered. Tie a bow or knot at the end.
The fun thing about this package is the popcorn slides out of the box even with the bow still tied. It is super fun!
To add a belly band of pattern paper to the box, I took a piece of 4 1/2 x 9 inch paper and scored it again at 3 3/4 , 4 1/4 , 8 and 8 1/2 inches. Add the sticky strip to the end like we did on the cover and wrap the pattern paper around the base.
Step 8 - Have fun and decorate the covers! I used the cute 4x4 inch square papers for the bases.
I then had fun adding Icon stickers, sprinkles, doodle sentiments, frills and sentiments from the This and That sticker sheet to dress them up. And what festive package would be complete without a jingle bell to top it off?
Here are the boxes up close:
