Gift Card holders with Hershey Kisses

I was inspired by Kelly Acheson's post to make these for a craft fair I was participating in.  It is a gift card holder with room for Hershey kisses in the bottom.
Start with a piece of cardstock 9-3/4" X 7"
Score it first in Portrait orientation at 1" and 6"
Then, score it in Landscape orientation at 1/2", 1-1/2", 2-1/2", 3-1/2", 4-1/2" and 7"
Then cut so it looks like the picture below, making sure when you cut the tabs, you cut at an angle so the box ends form. 
Using the word window punch, fold the small tab under, then slide the punch from the side in order to punch the second side.
 Flip the cardstock over and then punch a half circle using the 1-1/4" circle punch.  Apply adhesive on the tab, and on the bottom and side away from the half circle.
 Fold the top of the card first.
 Then, fold the box part over, and press flat.
 Then, pop open the box.
Take a piece that you cut off of the original cardstock and cut it to 5" and glue dot 5 Hershey Kisses to it in a row.
 Close and adhere the left side of the box closed, then slide the Kisses in and then close the right side of the box.
Using a Whisper White cardstock measuring 4-1/4" X 2-1/2 and decorate and adhere to the top of the card.  Tie a piece of ribbon around the box part of the card.
