Cocoa Holder Instructions...

Due to many requests, here are the instructions for the Cocoa Holder. Enjoy...

You will need the following:
(2) 9-1/2" x 7" card stock (box bottom)
(1) 6" x 7" DSP (box cover)

Box Cover:
Score the 6" x 7" DSP at 15/16" on all sides. Fold on the score lines. Cut slits on the dotted lines and adhere together to form the box cover.

Box Bottom:
1. Score the two 9-1//2" x 7" card stocks at 1/2" and 4-1/2" on the 9-1/2" side. Turn the card stock and score it at 3" on the 7" side. Fold on the score lines. Cut on the dotted lines. On one of the card stock, use the paper cutter to cut out the gray rectangle at 1/4" from the sides and bottom. Cut out the rectangle 1" high. Use the 3/4" circle punch to cut out the half circle.

2. Attach the two card stocks together by the 1/2" tab.

3. Assemble the box using sticky strip. Do the remaining 1/2" tab first and then the bottom flaps.

4. When you are done, decorate as desired and fill with cocoa packets. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you will find these instructions useful.
