Because You Asked . . . Candy Box Stats
The heart box that I used has sort of a velvety finish. I think it was a Hershey’s Pot of Gold ® box but can’t be certain. It measures on the outside about 9-1/4'” (east/west) x 9” (north/south) & on the inside 8-½” x 8”. I noticed the pattern calls for a 1-lb. box but a trip to the store shows that my box is smaller than that. The box I used looks more like a 9 or 14 oz box. My stitched design measures 7-5/8 x 7 ½ on 14/28 (I think) ct fabric. A larger box would give more of an unstitched “border” around the design which would look very nice.
