If you don't have a Cricut, you can search for similar files in your machine's software. Just search for things like treat box, 3d box, and St. Patrick's Day.
After cutting out all of your paper pieces, you’ll start by gluing all of the rainbow pieces to the front of the box.
Flip over the box cutout to the back and glue the acetate shamrock window piece to the inside of the box. Flip the project back over to the front, and glue the green glitter shamrock outline to the window opening.
Using the edge of a ruler, fold along the score lines of the box.
Use glue along the side tab and allow it to dry, then fold in the bottom flaps to create the box, leaving the top portion open.
Using glue and foam dots, attach the gold shamrock cutouts to the front of the box.
Fill your box with your desired candy, and glue the top closed. (You may also use a stapler instead.)
Attach the cloud name tag to the top of the box using glue or foam dots.
You can add additional embellishments if desired. And just like that, you have a fun way to deliver some treats to your friends and family! It’s even more special with the custom personalization on each box. They will love that you took the time to make such a nice and thoughtful gift.
