The minute I first saw this box on Pinterest I knew I needed to try it for myself. I have made several different prototypes using different types of paper and have learned quite a lot throughout this process. I first tried cardstock wit DSP cut and added to one triangle on each side. I was not happy with how the DSP wrinkled and came unstuck around some edges during the twisting process. I tried stamping directly on cardstock and then putting the box together and twisting. Finally, I tried some thick specialty DSP . The first try, I forgot to score the diagonals before putting the box together. The box was impossible to twist, but I chalked it up to operator error and thought I'd try again from scratch. These pictures show the final result. I would recommend adding a little of your treat in the bottom of the box before twisting and then filling the top with treat once it is twisted.
Here are the dimensions I used for the box:
DSP 10" x 8.5"
Score on the long side at 1/2", 2 1/2", 7 1/2", 9 1/2"
Score on the short side at 1/2", 2 1/2", 4 1/2", 6 1/2"
Lay paper with 1/2" score line running from top to bottom on left side of paper.
Score in the large rectangles diagonally from top right to bottom l
