Valentine Treat Boxes

I made these cute little 3X3.5 treat boxes for Scrappy Moms Stamps - Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Out of the Box! Of course, I'm making all my "grown" kids Valentine bags and these will go in them!! :) Instructions on how to make them are below! :)
Cut cardstock 7" X 4 1/4"
Score (horizontal) 1" X 3 1/4"
Flip (Vertical) & score at 1"- 2"- 4" and 5"
Fold on score lines and cut as shown :)
I used score tape because, it seems to hold better :)

Flip over and used score tape where shown :)

Assemble box starting with the small tape first (on the inside of the bigger tab)

Then the bigger tab on the outside :)
I used a corner rounder. It makes the lid close easier :)

.... and here's your box!! Now decorate! :)
