  • Oval chipwood boxes (set of 3)

  • Decorative papers

  • Butterfly and/or flower craft punch

  • Twill tape

  • Xyron with permanent adhesive cartridge (or double-sided adhesive sheets)

  • Double-sided tape


  1. To cover lids, back pieces of decorative paper slightly larger than each lid with double-sided permanent adhesive. Adhere paper to the top of the lids. Turn lids over onto cutting mat, and trim excess paper around edges of lids with a craft knife.

  2. Run a piece of double-sided tape all the way around the sides of the lids. Lay twill tape over adhesive, tucking in raw edge at the end.

  3. With craft punches, punch shapes from a selection of paper colors. Fold wings or petals up and glue to the top of the smallest box.

  4. Fill boxes with candy or other holiday treats.
