Make a simple hinge close treat favour box - 4 from one sheet A4 cardstock

Box making for beginners with this simple hinge close little Love Hearts treat or favour box. Make 4 from one sheet of A4 cardstock. Get ahead of the craft fair and Christmas rush.

Box making can be quite daunting when you start, learning where to score and cut and how to put a box together that will close easily and be straight and perfect.  Well I have tried to show you with an easy to follow step by step video tutorial how box making can be simple and easy to achieve giving perfect results every time and the best bit is that you can get 4 boxes from a single sheet of A4 cardstock.


1 piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/2" (make 4 from one sheet of cardstock)

Score on 4" side at 1" and 3"

Score on 5 1/2" side at 1"and 2 1/2" and 3 1/2" and 5"

2 at 1 3/4" x 1 1/4"
2 x 3/4" x 1 1/4"
2 x  1"  x  1 1/4" (these can be cut out of the little scraps that you have left over from card making)

Use the Simply Scored score board to score all your lines (this score board is also available in metric)

This little treat box will hold two mini packs of Love Hearts and so to keep the "love" theme I used the Well Written Dies which have 24 word dies.

To make the little thumb hold use a circle hole punch, if the punch is a large size then put the thumb hole in before closing the box.

Here is the step by step video tutorial to show you just how simple box making can be. I hope you enjoy and have a go at making this little love heart treat box.
