Hi All! Here is the FINAL treat that I gave to my friends at convention! This is a treat box that requires no adhesive at all. I was inspired by this project. So let's take a look:
These little boxes are made with Black cardstock that I matted with Magical paper. For the embellishments, I stamped circles from the So Many Smiles stamp set in Crystal Blue ink on White Daisy cardstock and punched them out with 3/4-inch and 1-inch circle punches. I then arranged them on the front reminiscent of that Mouse we all know and love, and added a bow to some of the boxes as well.
Here's a look at the front and back together:
I added a little thumb notch to the back to make it easier to open. Here's a look at it when it's completely opened:
The key to this box is that it opens on at both ends and has that extra flap on the right that wraps around the front. When you close the ends, the flap is secured in place, no adhesive required! Pretty cool! Anyway, these boxes were sized specifically to hold a "Cutie Bar" of soap from Herbaria. Which you can see here:
A quick word about Herbaria (with which I am in no way affiliated). Herbaria is a small soap manufacturer that I ran across on a recent trip to St. Louis. Everything is made in small batches using all natural ingredients. I got to tour the facility and chat with the friendly folks there, which was fun. But, frankly, I was sold on the soaps after using them. As a crafter and artist, I am scrubbing my hands all the time, and the soaps I used dried them out. These soaps don't. It's as simple as that. So I thought I'd share my good fortune with my crafty friends, hence the gifties. :)
I hope you enjoyed seeing these Magical projects as much as I enjoyed making them and giving them away!
Until next time, have a fantastically creative day!
