Fall or Halloween Treat Box

Here is a cute little treat box from the September Make and Take last year. This particular box was all dressed up for Halloween, but it would make a really adorable Valentine's treat box if you switched out the colors and put a heart on the front.

  • Bermuda Bay card stock 3-3/4" x 8-1/2"
  • Tangelo Twist card stock 2" x 10"
  • Basic Black card stock (two pieces) 1-7/8" x 1-7/8"
  • Motley Monsters DSP 1-3/4" x 1-3/4"
  • Basic Black 1/8" Ribbon 10"
  • Stamps: Chalk Talk
  • Ink: Bermuda Bay
  • Accessories: 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1/8" Basic Black Ribbon, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Sticky Strip, Paper Snips

With the 8-1/2" edge of the Bermuda Bay card stock against the top of your Simply Scored score at 2", 4", 6", 8". Then rotate the card stock 90 degrees clockwise and score at 1-7/8". Use Paper Snips to trim the card stock so it looks like the image below. Then add Sticky Strip onto the one narrow flap on the right side. Fold the card stock on the score lines. 

Form your box by removing the Sticky Strip liner from the narrow flap and adhere it behind the card stock on the other end. Then fold in and glue your bottom flaps in place. 

Now take your Tangelo Twist card stock and place it on your Simply Scored with the 10" edge against the top. Score at 1", 2", 4", 6", 8", and 9". Punch both ends with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. Then add Sticky Strip in the locations shown. Fold the card stock on the score lines. 

Remove the Sticky Strip liner from your Tangelo Twist card stock. Place the little Bermuda Bay box into the center section of the Tangelo Twist card stock then fold up the ends of the Tangelo Twist to adhere to the sides of your little box. 

Put a treat in your box then thread the Basic Black ribbon through the holes and tie it into a bow. Glue the DSP onto the Basic Black card stock then glue it onto the front side of the box. Finally stamp the "for you" from Chalk Talk onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Bermuda Bay ink. Punch out the greeting with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch and stick it onto the front of the box with a Stampin' Dimensional. 

This little box is perfect for a sweet treat. What do you think?
