These are the boxes my boy and I made to package the shortbreads we baked as Christmas gifts for our friends. I found a basic pattern online, enlarged it, added the text, then printed it on card stock. Mike cut them out and then I scored the creases and glued them together. They were fairly simple, but I definitely would not be suggesting making them as favours unless you are very hardcore. They looked very nice all packaged up though, and the shortbreads were enjoyed by all Smiley

Cool idea!! I love the text on it, too! Do you have a link to the pattern you used? I'm making a lot of sweets to give away this non-denominational winter celebration   Wink

This is the pattern. I changed just a couple things: I erased the letters so I wouldn't have to flip it over, I shortened the small flaps so that it would fit better on a sheet of 8.5x11" cardstock, and I made the lines very faint so that they wouldn't show up on the folded box.

I hope this helps!
