Hi All! Welcome to another Tuesday Treats. We're in full Valentine mode here at the Hill house. I'm actually creating a little faster than I can blog, so be ready for a little Happy Heart Day celebrating throughout the month of February.
I wanted to share a little treat box today that actually folds flat and can really be used for any occasion.
For this box, I used a piece of polka dot kraft cardstock from Close To My Heart's Rustic Home Fundamentals paper collection cut to 6 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches. I used the same paper for the heart tag and cut it with the small heart from the Thin Cuts Basic Heart die set. The red heart was cut from the Cranberry Hearts paper in the Adventures Fundamentals paper pack using the extra small heart die from the same set. I popped the smaller heart on the larger with foam tape and added the XOXO sentiment from the CTMH Operation Smile: True Love stamp set in Cranberry in on White Daisy cardstock. I tied the tag on to the box and tied the box shut with a bit of bakers twine from my stash.
Here are a couple of close ups:
And here's a look inside the box:
I managed to get 6 Hershey Nuggets into this wee little box! To add a little extra somethin' to the package, I wrapped each nugget with a band of matching pattern paper that was cut to 1 x 3 inches.
Here's a look at the box folded for storage:
It really does fold completely flat, so you could make a bunch of these ahead of time and then decorate them in whatever the occasion calls for! The polkadots are festive, but certainly neutral enough to use any time of the year.
And here's one more look at the package ready for giving:
The final dimensions of the box (in inches) are: 2(w) x 2(l) x 1 1/4(h). It could hold all kinds of things, really.
So I hope you've enjoyed my little box. I'll get a tutorial together for it soon! In the meantime, have a wonderfully creative week!
