EASY VALENTINE TREAT BOX & TUTORIAL

These little treat boxes are easy to make and are such a cute gift. You can fill them with any kind of chocolate, but I think Hershey kisses are perfect. I have had this pattern for a few years and I believe the original designer of the box is Sam Hammond of Pootles. Last year, I made a bunch of these for my family, but they would also make great teacher gifts or Valentine party favors.

My stamper friends made these last week at Stamp Camp. Instructions to make them are below:


I used the large heart from the stamp set "Sealed With Love", a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock, a piece of Melon Mambo 1/8" Stitched Ribbon, and a piece of Silver Glimmer paper.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

1.  Cut a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock 4" x 8 1/4". 
2.  Using your Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score on the short side at 2".
3.  Score on the long side at 2", 4", 6", 8".
4.  Remove from the Scoring Tool and stamp the heart in the middle of each 2" square.
5.  With a pencil, mark a dot at the top of each 2" square at  1", 3", 5" and 7".
6.  Cut the score lines from the bottom up to the 2" mark.
7.  Using your Stampin' Trimmer, line up the pencil mark and the corner of each square and score to each corner as shown below:



8.  Cut off the bottom right 1/4" piece and fold your score lines as shown below and put adhesive on upper 1/4" piece. This is what your box should look like:


9.  Punch small holes in the top portion of each 2" square (equally distanced from the center mark) as shown below and put the box together.


10. This is what your box should look like:


11. Decorate and weave the ribbon through the holes. Don't forget to add your candy. Tie in front in a bow.


12. Make your little tag by stamping "hugs and kisses" on a piece of 2" by 3/8". Back with a 2 1/4" x 1/2" piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. Attach with glue dots.

That's it!  Enjoy!

Happy Stamping,
