Happy Tuesday! I worked late and came home and had to come up with something for Spooky Week Day 3 (because that's the stupid demand I put on myself, lol!), but I'm pooped and kicking myself right about now! lol! (And by the way, I put that black chunky glitter on the witch hat with Crystal Effects and it looked a lot better before I *impatiently* picked it up and attached it before it was dry! doh!)
Anyway, I had this idea the other day...to take the treat box holder I showed on Sunday that I had modified from Jen del Muro's great pizza box tutorial...and turn it into a box inside the Top Note Bigz Die. Doesn't it remind you of those "Lifesaver book" things you used to get for Christmas when you were a kid? Of course, I had to put another Reese's peanut butter cup inside, now I have two! Bwahaahaaa!
So here's a quick tutorial...below is the first one I made tonight and I HATE it, which is why you see another one, the Kraft one, above. But this Basic Gray one is the one I took pictures of while making it for the tutorial, so oh well, they can't all be works of art, right?! This photo shows how it looks from the side, where you can see the treat box part.
Here are your cutting and scoring instructions (click to enlarge if necessary):
After scoring, cut the little score lines on each side up to the 1" mark to make your flaps:
Instructions for running your card through the Big Shot with the Top Note Bigz Die, it comes out looking like this:
Then cut it in half on the score line:
After your treat box is all assembled and closed with treat inside, put Sticky Strip on top and bottom of box:
I used Jumbo Eyelets to run the ribbon through, and I attached the ribbon with some Sticky Strip along the back "spine" so the ribbon would always stay with the box!
Variation...on this Kraft one, I did the ribbon a little bit differently...
I attached the ribbon on the inside, so put down your Sticky Strip first:
Then attach your ribbon:
And again, after you attach the treat box inside, it looks like this when open:
Hope you like this little Top Note treat holder! I did this really quickly, so please let me know if something doesn't make sense or if I forgot something!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! Have you stamped something today?
