These little cupcake boxes are so easy to make and what a great way to let someone know that you think they are sweet. Today, I'm going to give you a step by step how to make the 'boy' cupcake box on the right.

 Bottom of the box:

Score @ 2 3/4" on all sides

Flip over.  Clip corners, score lines  and add sticky strip/snail.

 Assemble box.

Top of Box: 4 7/8" x 4 7/8". Score each side at 7/8"

Turn DSP over and center embellishments container and trace around.
