I made this adorable treat box recently for Easter. It’s a fun and easy project I call the “one-piece box” because the box and lid are all one piece, and there is very little cutting involved to put it all together.


Cardstock measurement is 6.25 x 11.
Score cardstock along the long side at 1.5 and 4.75”.
Score along the short side at 1.5, 3, 6.25, and 7.75”.

Cut off two small squares as shown.

You will also need to use a scoring board, or the scoring blade on your trimmer, to create diagonal score lines on the remaining four small squares.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another view of the cardstock, with the two squares cut off to create a flap. If you have one, you can use a corner rounder punch on the flap.

Next, burnish all your score lines (including the diagonal ones).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You’ll need 4 pieces of DSP measuring 3 x 1.25″, and one piece measuring 3 x 3″.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My project used DSP that doesn’t have a right-side-up orientation. If your DSP does, you can use this photo as a reference for which side of your box will be the top once it is folded. The red print shows the top for the four DSP strips; the green print shows the top for the DSP square.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next four images show how to fold up the box.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pocket created by this folded panel is where you will slide the flap of the box to keep it closed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slide the panel into place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Now you can decorate your box however you’d like! I used the Medium Daisy and Balloon punch to create bunnies!

Happy Stampin’!

Another demonstrator meeting means another collection of fun and beautiful Make and Take projects! I always enjoy the opportunity to get together with others who love stamping as much as I do. We have a great time sharing business ideas, seeking advice and feedback, and of course – stamping and creating together. Thanks so much to the wonderful demonstrators who shared their time, energy, and ideas with us at this recent meeting!

All of the projects are made using products from the new Spring Mini and/or Sale-a-Bration catalogues. I’ve labeled the photos with the main products used, and I’ve added a shopping list below so you can get any of the supplies you need to recreate whichever project(s) you fall in love with!

 

Barb showed us how to create an awesome little treat box using only one piece of cardstock and very little cutting. I’ll be recreating this project for sure – watch for it in an upcoming blog post!

Bruni combined the Heartfelt Bundle with the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set – a terrific combination. Extra terrific because if you buy the Heartfelt Bundle before March 31st, you’ll qualify for a free Level One Sale-a-Bration reward …. such as the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set! This was also the first time I worked with Merry Merlot ink, and I LOVE it! Can’t wait to play more with this beautiful colour!

Susan showed us how to create a beautiful birthday card using the Morning Star stamp set and the gorgeous Stitched Stars. The green floral images on the star above are all one stamp … the stamp is shaped to fit perfectly on the star!!

I loved learning how to do a scalloped tag topper closure card, courtesy of Laurel. Watch for an upcoming video on how to create this fun and unique fold!

I was also grateful to Carolyn for showing us how to use Blends to colour white embossing powder and ribbon, so that we can customize the colour of our project! Brilliant!

Lynne showed us how to make this adorable treat box with sweet little faceted gems to decorate! I love the heart-shaped opening!

I received this charming little notepad and pen from fellow demonstrator Susan. What a sweet gift – I just had to share it with you all!

The opportunity to learn from and connect with other demonstrators is so valuable to me. If you’re thinking of joining, this is the perfect time of year to do so – not only will you get your fully-customizable Starter Kit with $165 in product for only $135, but you will also receive a mini paper trimmer, a sample pack of beautiful Designer Series Paper, and a stamp set of your choice, all absolutely FREE! I’m always looking for new members to join my team, so if you’d like to know more about how to work your own hours, have fun, meet new people, and craft your heart out, let me know! Then we can attend the next demonstrator meeting together!

This week’s Stampin’ Sunday video is something really different – a collaborative project between me and my daughter, Gwen. In addition to being a crafter, Gwen is also an avid creator (and consumer) of videos, so she co-directed this video with me, and took it in some different and fun directions. I hope you like the result!

The video features the September 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit, “Bone Appetit”. This kit includes 20 food-safe treat boxes, a unique and exclusive Halloween stamp set, and a spooky, special-edition box. We’re going to fill the boxes with treats to give to Gwen’s class at school.
