Step 2

On each of the four corner squares, score a line diagonally, from the corner of the square in toward the center.

Fold along the horizontal lines …

It will look like this.

Punch a hole in each of the four corner squares…

Take a piece of ribbon …

Draw the ends of the ribbon together and tie a knot, or a bow if you like. Now fill it with candy.

And, that’s it!!  Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!!  You just finished your Candy Box for Valentines Day.  How did it turn out?  Now, fill with candy and give it to your favorite someone this Valentines Day.
