We made these cute wee treat boxes at my Card Making Class in Cambridge last week. These are so quick and easy to make that I decided we would make two. If you live in the Waikato check out my Event Calendar for my next class. I would love it if you would come and join us!
Here are the measurements for this particular size:
Box Base – Whisper White Thick card stock or Real Red cut at 26 x 15 cm.
-Score on long side at 5.5cm, 12.5cm, 18cm and 25cm.
-Score on short side at 3.5cm and 9.5cm. Flip over and score at 13.5cm
Designer Series Paper mats – 5.5 x 6.5 cm x 2 and 5.5 x 5 cm x 2
Whisper White for Sentiment – 3.5 x 6.5 cm
Flipping it over on that last score line on the short side gives a nicely burnished fold line on the top of your box. I learnt that from my favourite box designer, Sam Hammond. If you haven’t checked out her You Tube channel you must! She is just adorable and her video tutorials are very easy to follow.
I love how these little wooden embellishments go with the design of the paper. So cute!
This box was designed for Valentines Day but you can use this paper for any occasion so we used a sentiment from the Blooms and Wishes Stamp Set on one of the boxes to make it fit any occasion.
I used my hand held circle punch for the holes to thread the bakers twine. This might be a little tricky for some to go through all the layers at once. But you can punch two layers first and flip it around and do the other side. You just need to be careful lining the two sets of holes up.
If you live in New Zealand and you don’t have a demonstrator right now I would love to help you with all your Stampin’ Up! projects. Contact me for a copy of our current catalogues to be sent out to you for free.
