Pyramid Triangle treat box

Hi All,
I had this little craft sheet from Joann Craft store forever! One of those freebies that you always get around to doing!
It kept surfacing in my to do pile and I used it to create a little treat box for my matching card too!.
So the first thing I had to do was scan the Info sheet side with the pattern side and try and enlarge it inside paint/MS Word.
If you would like to make this I had to tweak the pattern a little to have the holes line up and the sides to fold. See my pattern below.

You see the original from Joann Craft store above.

I moved the holes on the fold over tab and trimmed the side panels to an angle to form the pyramid. (but check yours before you punch!) - Cut, score fold. I glued the back to the sides flaps and used the string to tie the front to the box - this allows the recipient to open and get the treats out and still keep it intact.

Here is my sample - the finish size of my enlargement (hee hee - tiny) treat box is 2 1/2" L and 2 3/4" H
