Project of the Month

Sorry I'm a little late in posting the Project of the Month, folks. But after I gotta load of Sony's Color Challenge, I wanted to try and incorporate it in with the Project. Her challenge was to use Ice Blue, Aqua and Lavender. What pretty colors for the Holidays.

Our Project of the Month is this Wraparound Trio Treat Box. That's right, you can put 3 sets of treats in this handy little box. We used the stamps from "Your Gift" in this project.

It's easy to make. Just print out the template found on the website on the back of 3 pieces of patterned cardstock, cut out and score.

Place a Scallop Oval die in the center of the biggest panel and a smaller one in the center panel. Since the piece is too big to fit through the diecut machine, just fold the small tabs over the dies and run through.

On the remaining two pieces, put the large scalloped die in the big panel, and the small one in the panel on the opposite side. Fold the tabs over and run through the die cut machine. Cut the large end tab off on one of the pieces. Place acetate over the openings and now you can assemble the boxes.

Fold the small side tab over, and line the fold up to the dotted line on the other side. Place tape on the bottom tabs and close up the bottom of the boxes. Line up the boxes so that the one that you cut the large tab off of is on the left side. Arrange as shown below and attach the the large tabs overlapping the boxes.

Use "Icing" CutUps Die to cut 3 white strips and weave them up and over more patterned paper. And cover the large tabs. Stamp the from "Your Gift" sentiment and then sign who the gift is for and from. Once you put the sentiment in, it's kinda hard to sign your name ;).

Punch two holes on the side of each of the end boxes and close with ribbon. Then decorate the front and fill with candy. Easy Peasy.

If you want to know how I decorated the front of the Wrap-Around Trio Treat Box and want more detailed info, you can get more detailed instructions and download the template for FREE on our website.

WOW, that's better than any of the stuff the big candy companies make.
