I have always liked the boxes creates by Amazing Paper Grace (blog) called the Twist Top Box. I made one a couple of years ago when she first posted the directions.
For the speaker and musicians at our retreat I created custom ones to go in their gift baskets. I did three in chocolate cardstock with apple green accents and one in apple green with chocolate accents.
I used my star punch to create the side cutouts and lined the sides with pieces of transparency. They have tissue paper tucked into them so the candies will be contained.
The ribbon loops on top are just taped inside the twist. They are decorative and not meant to carry the weight of a filled box.
