Versatile Treat box
I decorated the front of my box with the Sizzix Alteration line snowman cut and inked with distress inks. I used the McGill Alpine snowflake and some Stickles and a SU label punch with sentiment. Add a button and some baker's twine for a closure and voila.
Fold in all your score lines to get them broken in. Then open sheet and fold in the 2 and 6.5 inch scores toward the middle and then bring large piece up toward the center while creating a triangle to make pocket. See picture below, do this for both the larger sides. This creates the center pocket. You have a choice to glue the triangles to the box side or leave them free (as you see in the photo). Most of the time I would glue the triangles to the box front and back to make the box more rigid, but the box is fully functional either way.
This would be a great box for any occasion and with Valentine's Day coming up, another chocolate holiday, this would be a quick and easy way to share with friends and family.
Thank you for stopping by and if you want to check out the post where I first found the box head on over to Stamp With Silvey's blog.
