You Made My Day-mini treat box

box

I whipped up a handful of these sweet treat boxes for this month’s stamp club. I found this idea on Pinterest from SU Demonstrator Kriss Huels–Thanks Kriss! She used Sale-a-Bration paper, so I swapped in the NEW “Cherry on Top” designer series paper, and added the new Dotted Lace ribbon bow. The greeting comes from “A Dozen Thoughts” stamp set

My favorite part of this treat–you don’t have to rip the paper to open it!!! It slides right behind the greeting. Sweet!

For my Stamp Club members, I added a sample of the NEW In Color Blossom Accents.

Mini Treat Box Swap

Hands down, one of my FAVORITE swaps from the St. Louis Regional event was this little treat box from SU Demonstrator Karla Endris. Is this not the cutest little thing you’ve ever seen!?!?

Unfortunately, Sale-a-Bration is over, so I used Patio Party Designer Series Paper instead. But I did cheat and use the little “yum” sale-a-bration stamp 🙂 Here’s my version of the one we made at Card Class last night –they were a hit!

As promised, here’s your tutorial! Let me know if you have any questions 🙂

Dimensions:

  • Card stock measuring 4-1/4″ x 4-3/4″
  • designer series paper 1-7/8″ x 2-5/8″ (you will need 2 pieces–one for the front and one for the back)

20130327-090619.jpg

With your 4-3/4″ side on the top, You are going to score at 2″ and 2-3/4″ to make the center crease (this will be the base to hold your candy)

For the flaps: with the 4-1/4″ side on top, measure 3/4″ and cut down to the crease mark. You will do this on both sides to both of the score lines. Tip: there’s a little arrow on your cutting blade. Line that up with the score line and it will be perfect every time!

Simply fold your flaps up and secure with snail adhesive or you can use sticky strip if you really want a permanent hold.

And that’s it! Just add your designer series paper to the front and back. You will also need to punch a hole for your ribbon closure.

One last tip: I punched out two petite labels and layered them to create a larger mat. Don’t forget dimensionals!

These would be great for a bridal/baby shower favor or holiday treat! You could even customize them with your school/team colors.  Just change out the dsp and card stock and you are ready for any event!

I’d love to know what you think! Feel free to leave a comment or question 🙂

Have a fabulous Day and thanks for stopping by!
