This is a fun week and now you won’t miss a thing.
Now these are quite big boxes at 3″ x 5 1/2″ or 7.5 cm x 13.8 cm. Here’s the template with all the measurements, scoring and cutting guides

There is a lot of room for treats and all manner of gifts to go in this box. A special gift for the man in your life. I dare say teenagers would think it was fun too because of the shape. Now don’t just put this into the masculine projects. You could easily make this feminine or suitable for a baby. Think outside the square a bit and look at the supplies you have and the occasions you have coming up and try to plan ahead.
