  • Score the long way 3/4" in on both sides then score the short way at 3/4", 2 1/2", 3 1/4" and 5". 
  • Using the template for reference, cut in from the edge to the first score where indicated. Cut and remove the areas that are shaded in gray. 
  • Cut and attach designer paper. 
  • TOP: 1 5/8" x 2 5/8" 
  • SIDES: (2) 5/8" x 1 5/8 and (2) 5/8" x 2 5/8" 
  • Fold and glue decorated card stock to create box. 
  • Fill with 2 boxes of Nerds and embellish as desired.
