Candy Wrapper Instructions:

1. Place four pieces of candy (I used Hershey's Bliss) in a row on a sheet of paper; score as shown so that the paper forms a wrap around the candy and tape edges together.

2. Embellish with chipboard shapes and strips of cardstock that note the days of the week.

Box Instructions:

1. Cut (2) 12" strips of striped paper to fit the outside edges of the box. Glue first strip around outside; add second strip as needed and cut length to fit.

2. Cover the inside of the box with green paper. (Detailed directions: Measure the inside depth of the box and the inside width and height. Cut one piece of Tender paper to fit the inside "floor" of the box, plus each of the four "walls" of the box, scoring where the walls meet the floor. Cut the corners as needed to fit and glue the paper inside.)

3. Make side-fold card from Loved paper; distress edges of chipboard flowers and card. Adhere flowers to card and embellish with felt flower, chipboard buttons and ribbon.

4. Put candy wraps and card in box, cover with lid and embellish with letter stickers and ribbon.
