To create the side flaps for the box, snip as indicated by the dashed lines on the diagram.

Fold the box up. On both sides, fold in both flaps A and tape together. Fold up side B and tape to A. Fold middle tab C over the top of side B and tape to the inside of the box. Take the 1/8” Hole Punch and on the two wide tabs, punch two holes about 1/2” down from the tip and 1/2” apart.

Fill the box with your treat. Bring the two top tabs together and thread the ribbon through the holes. Tie the ribbon together into a bow to keep the box closed.

Finishing –

Follow the manufacturer’s directions and use the Big Shot die cutting system to cut out one turtle body and two turtle shells. Optional: You can edge the turtle pieces with black or brown ink.

Tape the turtle body to one of the shells. Take one Pop Up glue dot and place on the end of a jumbo paperclip. Place clip on the back of the turtle. Add some double stick tape or another glue dot and place the other shell on top, sandwiching the paperclip in between. Place the turtle paperclip on top of the favor box, slipping the paper clip between the two ribbon holes.
