For each candy box, cut your desired color of striped paper to 5-inches wide and 3.5-inches tall (with vertical lines). Once cut, fold the paper in half twice to get 4 even sections. Make sure to have defined lines in your paper.
Lay the paper down with backside facing up and fold the striped side over 1-inch. Again, score the crease to get a defined line. Unfold the section, flip the paper over and make three x 1-inch cuts at each crease in the bottom section of your paper. This will make four flaps, each 1-inch long.
To make the box fold the bottom flaps over each other and use a piece of clear tape to secure the pieces together. Position a second piece of clear tape on the two sides of the box that are open. To achieve a nice look, tape the box from inside.
Next, print out the tops of the candy box. Overlap one edge of the label over the opposite edge to achieve an umbrella shape. Turn the umbrella-shaped label over and insert a toothpick up into the center. Using leftover adhesive paper from your label sheet cut out a small flag shape. Use a pen to personalize the flag and position it atop your toothpick.
Now fill you box with candies. Lastly, position the top of your umbrella onto the candy box. The sticky label shouldn’t require any additional glue, but if you’d like to permanently close the box, add glue around the top edge of the box before placing on the umbrella. Once your umbrella top is added on, gently fold over the scalloped edges to complete the look.
