Christmas Treat Box

Here is the video from my Facebook Live presentation on how to make this adorable cookie and tea treat box....




The box we are making is the box with the ties on the lower left of the picture above.  It holds a tea bag and two packages of Biscoff Cookies (like the airlines give you)...perfect treat for a co-worker or anyone you'd like to reward with a little something.

Easy to make...here's what you need:

1.  Cardstock : 2 3/4 x 8.5 inches.  Cut three of these from one sheet of cardstock so you           can make a few at a time. Also another piece of the same color card stock measuring 2         3/4 x 2 inches.  These pieces are in Real Red in the picture.
2.  Cardstock: 2 1/2 x 1 3/4.  This is the Coastal Cabana piece in the example above.  
3.  Designer Series Paper (DSP): 1 1/2 x 8 1/2.  This is a strip that decorates the box all             around.
4.  Scraps of Whisper White paper to stamp the snowman, hat, and stick arms.
5.  A length of ribbon about 15 inches long.

Put it together...

  • Score the long piece of card stock on the long side at 3/4, 3 7/8, 4 5/8, 7 3/4.
  • Furnish the folds with a bone folder.  Score the DSP paper on the long side at the same marks as the card stock.  Burnish the fold lines with the bone folder.
  • Take a corner rounder punch and round the small red and green squares of paper.
  • On the green square, take the small stamp that looks like snowfall and stamp the falling snow all over that card stock
  • Stamp the snowman image and his stick arms and hat with black ink on the white piece of scrap card stock and punch out all of the images.  Attach the images with dimensionals to the stamped blue card stock.  Color the hat, carrot nose, and holly with markers as desired.  Attach the arms and the hat to the snowman.  
  • Take two sided tape and apply it down the length of the box.  Remove the paper liner and take the ribbon and lay it on the tape evenly.  
  • Take the green square with the snowman attached and adhere it to the red card stock square and attach both the front of the box.  
  • Add a tea bag package on the inside and two Biscoff Cookie packets which you attach with two sided tape.  Tie a bow and give to your favorite friend!
