Skiving Snackbox

© Shelia


One-pound candy box (easy to find at stores with candy making and craft supplies)
Sticker or label paper
Candy wrappers (look like baby muffin cups) or waxed paper

Notes for the crafty witches

If you can’t lay your hands on one of those one-pound candy box, use this template (designed by Josée Leblanc and inspired by Auntie Andrea’s box templates, which can be found here) to make your own.

You should preferably make your box out of cardstock or thick cardboard. To keep your box from getting grease marks, also cut out the design in parchment paper, waxed paper or foil and put that layer inside your box. You can use an dry-adhesive dispenser (the roll-on glue used for scrapbooking) or a glue stick to assemble the box and to glue the 2 layers together.

Snackbox Design


Use a color printer to print out the design page the author designed for the snackbox. To get the best looking box print on sticker or label paper, but if it is out of your budget regular paper would be fine.

Assemble the box (the package explains how to fold it). Cut the designs out and attach them to the box. If you use regular paper you will have to use a glue stick to attach the designs to the box.

Make the candies using the following recipes:
- Fainting Fancies
- Fever Fudge
- Nosebleed Nougat
- Puking Pastilles

The last step is to wrap the candies in waxed paper or put it in little candy cups. Then arrange the candies in the box.

You now have assembled a skiving snackbox that Fred and George would be proud of!

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
