In this Instructable I'll show you how you can recycle your candy boxes. It's a neat and fun little thing to do and also make a great gift. You can use it to hold money, jewelry, cards, pens, pencils and etc. I called it a jewelry box because I couldn't think of anything else to call it.

Also please excuse a couple of the over exposed pictures. It helped to show the tape. And I know this Instructable isn't much, but it's something I've always wanted to do.

Step 1: Gather materials

First you'll need to gather your materials.

You'll need...

-Two candy boxes. Can generally be any shape and size, but both should be the same.
-Masking tape
-razor blade
-(optional) cool decorative knife

I found the candy at Walgreens. They have a sweet deal on a lot of the old school candy. Three boxes for three bucks. It will also works with boxes as small as Dots.
Nice !
Thanks, now I can teach the kids to recycle when they are sugar highed out,the part about how to get it to fit inside helped! good instructional. 
 Thanks for viewing!
nice, but i would be done with the candy, before i could make one of these :-|
Thanks! I had other candy to keep me away from my beans, but it was super tempting.
lol, good idea.. lol im so bored right now, im reading all my replys out loud in a bill cosby voice hahah..... saaaaad panda
another great place to find &quot;old school&quot; candy (and subsequently the boxes) is the &lt;a rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;http://www.maststoreonline.com/&quot;&gt;Mast General Store&lt;/a&gt;...they've got all kinds of old school candy (anyone remember zots?)&lt;br/&gt;<br/>
We don't have a Mast here in Bakersfield, but it sounds like a good place. There's this place in Ventura that has a bunch of old school toys and they have some good candy.
