Measurements for Lip Gloss boxes

Hello, this is a picture of my Youngest Olivia (8) showing off her glossy lips and the cherry lip gloss she just made!
As promised here are the measurements for the lip gloss boxes. I'm so glad I thought to write them down!

For the box you will need:

1 piece of cardstock 9 1/4" x 6 1/4"

score this piece at 1 1/8" and 2 1/4" on all four sides. All the corners have to be cut, and I can't figure out how to explain that duh! so here's a link to the nugget box templates just have a look at one of these, and you'll see what I mean.

For the insert you will need:

1 piece of cardstock 5 1/2" x 2 1/4"

score 3/8" on all four sides, cut one 3/8" line at all four corners

punch 3 holes with 1 3/8" punch

For the lid you will need:

1 piece of cardstock 6" x 4 7/8"

score at 1/4", 1 1/8", 1 3/4", and 1 1/8" fold & put tape or glue along edge that is scored at 1/4"

I didn't even have to glue or tape the box and insert together, you only have to glue the lid together. These measurements are for three jars, purchased from sizes may vary with other jars.
