3 Seasonal Little Treat Boxes
(Holiday, Winter & Valentine's)

Dec 2020 TreatBoxes Banner

This year, little touches will help make spirits merry and bright, so I am creating more little treats to share. It is the perfect way to share a bit of joy, even with those I can not celebrate with in person.
This month's tutorial features 3 Seasonal Little Treat Boxes that you will love to create and your friends will be excited to receive. I have even included a short list of ideas for filling them!

Let's go create something cute and useful!

1. Snowflake Little Treat Box

Die cut 6" x 6" Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (#153512) with the Little Treat Box Die. Fold on all score lines with a Bone Folder.

2. Fold Little Treat Box

Fold the sides of the box in and tuck the tabs into the slot. If you slide the tab into the slot from the inside of the box the seam will be smooth and the tab won't stick out.

3. Finish Little Treat Box

The Little Treat Box can be assembled without any adhesive, just using ribbon to tie the top of the box close. Or you can add a bit of adhesive to keep the front and back flaps upright without the ribbon being tied.

4. Die Cut Snowflakes

Add a large Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem (#153547) to the center of the snowflakes. Tie the box closed with a 12" piece of Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (#151326).

Stamp greeting from the Little Treats (#153376) stamp set on scrap Whisper White cardstock with Early Espresso ink. Stamp candy image around the left and bottom of the greeting with Magenta Madness ink. Stamp off three times before stamping to get a lighter version of this intense colour. Die cut with scalloped circle die from the Little Treat Box Dies.

TreateBox 077. Decorate Valentine's Treat Box

Die cut a 6" x 6" piece of Plush Poinsettia Vellum with the Little Treat Box Die. Fold and assemble the box. Fold a 10" piece of Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (#151326) in half and thread both ribbon ends through the slots at the top of the box and the label starting at the back. Loop the ribbon ends back through the ribbon and tighten to close the box.
