This month I have several different projects to share. With all the holidays coming fall harvest, Thanksgiving, Christmas and then New Years!!!
All these projects can be adapted for each of the different holidays with a little creativity.
This first one is a little treat box that is super cute and easy to make. I've made 3 different ones just using different paper and embellishments.
Here is the instructions for the treat box:
8 1/2 x 10" card stock
With the 8 1/2" side up at the top of your score board Score 2" and 6 1/2".
Score at 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9 inches
Cut out the 2 boxes in each of the corners. On the long side cut up the score lines to the first score line. The middle square cut about 1/2 of it away and cut slivers off of each side.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words it is for me and instructions here's what it should look like.
Now your ready to fold and assemble put glue on the middle flaps and bring the back side up and square. Glue the back side and bring the front flap over and square it up. Repeat for the other side. Round off the top corners for the handles and punch a hole in the middle for your ribbon.
This first one is for Halloween
1 treat box made from Pumpkin Pie card stock
1 piece of Crumb Cake card stock 3/4" x 4"
Black memento ink
piece of holiday Washi tape
jute or ribbon or even both like I did
1 piece of crumb cake card stock 3/4” x 4 1/4” stamp a row of crows in a row going different directions from the Bushel and Peck stamp set using memento Black ink. Round off the top corners and glue on the handle of the treat box.
Stamp out Holiday Treats or another sentiment using the same black ink on delightful dijon card stock and punch out the sentiment or use a frame lit and go around the edge with a black marker giving the illusion of being layered.
Add wash tape across the bottom of the card.
For the Bat and Ghost: I used the owl builder punch from Stamping Up. See the photo on how the make them. Attach them to your treat box using foam tape.
Add treats and add a ribbon or jute through the hole in the handle and tie off!!
Christmas Treat Box
Here’s another version using the stamp set Memory Lane. Using crumb cake card stock to make the treat box.
Color the truck using Maymay’s instructional video and then cut out. Stamping a wreath on the truck door adding a bow made from baker’s twine.
Stamp out and color a tree and cut it out and add the tree to the back of the truck. Pop everything up using foam tape. Add a sentiment and a 3/4" x 4 1/4” piece of
Candy Cane Christmas designer paper to the handle. Sponge the edges of the box to make it look even more vintage.
