Today is the first day of H & M's blog hop and a chance for you to win some goodies!!!
Those of you who visit my blog might remeber this post where I found these super cute treats at the dollar store. There are several different test tubes templates/instructions out there in blogger land but none of them were what I needed b/c I wanted to show off the label and tops of the candy since they were my fave part. I just think they are soooo cute! I made 3 of these one for each of my kiddos. So would you like some instructions....I really tried to do a tutorial but I ran into some issues! Sorry! If you have any questions about the instructions please feel free to email me ( I have to work tommorrow so it will be after school before I will be able to respond).
10 x 5 1/2" cs for box
1" circle punch
red line tape
2 1/2 x 5 1/2" cs white ( I used PTI white)
scor-pal or any scoring tool.
Score your 10 x 5 1/2" cs at 1", 3", 5 1/2", and 7 1/2". Fold all score lines. This will be your box. Your white cs will be your stabilizer to keep your test tubes from rocking back and forth. I scored mine 1/4" on each side of the 2 1/2". If you dont have a good sturdy cs you might choose to use 2 of these. Punch 4 circles using your 1" circle punch. After punching your circles on your white stabilizer trace the circles on the top of your box (2 1/2") to make sure your circles will line up. Attach the flaps of the 2 1/2" white stabilizer to the inside of the box using red line tape. I put mine about halfway. Add red line tape to the 1" flap and attach to the inside of the box. Decorate your box! Easy peasy! I added glue dots to the bottom of my test tubes to help them not move around b/c they were pretty top heavy!LOL!
