Christmas Treat Box

Since I've been making so many Halloween projects, I thought it was time for me to do another Christmas project! This little box is so cute and versatile, so I had to try it out. I put some Christmas mints in my box, but I thought this could also be used to put some cards or gift tags in and give as a gift! 

This box is found on page 66 of the handbook, and page 45 of the assembly booklet. 

I cut the box and corner hinges out at 4", which gives you a 4x4 little box. I used the beautiful Pear & Partridge papers. After attaching the corner hinges to the box, I didn't think that the green paper popped as much as I wanted it to. I decided to cut them out again in the cranberry pattern which I added. I folded the box and inked all the edges in Smoothie ink.  

I tied the top flaps together with Cranberry Grosgrain ribbon (retired), and added a cute little tag from the October Stamp of the Month set, called Very Merry Christmas. I cut the base of the tag from Cranberry cardstock at 2 1/4", then layered it with some Pear & Partridge patterned paper at 2".  Finally, I stamped the cute image onto Cashmere cardstock cut at 1 3/4" and popped it up with 3-D foam tape, and added Bitty Pearls around the edge.  This tag shape can be found on page 79, Accent 4, of the handbook. 

The October Stamp of the Month set is so cute and a you'll get a lot of use out of it for your hand made cards and tags this Christmas! Plus, you can get it for as little as $5 with a qualifying order! 

I hope you enjoy this project, and if you decide to make one, please leave a comment and tell me what you'll put in it! :)

Happy Crafting!
