January 14 - ENJOY Treat Box

I LOVE these clear treat boxes from Pageframe Designs! There are 3 in each package and they come unassembled but they are super-fun to put together. I was going to do 3 for The Scrapbooking Cafe's Project Weekly feature this week but I managed to punch an accidental hole in the side of one of them while I was putting it together with the eyelets, so I didn't use the one I messed up for the feature. But then I thought - I can't waste this box! LOL So I just played around with it and came up with this. I covered up my mistake hole with the big flower and pearl so no one knows it is even there (unless you look inside the box I guess!) :) If you don't get the Project Weekly email and want to see how the others turned out you can see them posted in the Pageframe Designs gallery on their website (linked above).

"ENJOY" Treat Box

Ingredients:
  • Clear Box: Pageframe Designs
  • White Eyelets
  • Crop-A-Dile
  • "Enjoy Stamp" Lovely Labels Stamp Set, SU!
  • Mini Flower Stamp: Priceless Set, SU!
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss)
  • Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Kraft, Whisper White)
  • Patterned Paper: SU!
  • Scalloped Punch: SU!
  • Stampin' Dimensionals: SU!
  • Green Rhinestones: KaiserCraft
  • Flower and Pearls: Pretties Kit (SU!)
  • Peanuts
Instructions:
  1. Peel off the protective coating from the box lid and the box (both sides). Fold the creases inside and punch your hole for your eyelet where the tabs meet up on the lid on each side. Insert your eyelet and crimp together with your Crop-A-Dile on each of the 4 tabs to hold the box lid together.
  2. Stamp your ENJOY image in Chocolate Chip ink on kraft cardstock and cut it out. Stamp the same image with Kiwi Kiss ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out only the ENJOY sentiment. Adhere it on top of your craft image. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back. Add two small rhinestones on the stamped swirls.
  3. Punch a scalloped circle shape out of matching patterned paper and adhere your ENJOY square to the top of that. Add more dimensionals on the back of the scalloped circle and adhere it to the top of your box lid.
  4. Fold in your creases for your box and crimp an eyelet in the center of the tab to hold the box together.
  5. Take a large flower from your Pretties Kit and stamp your small flower image from your Priceless set in Kiwi Kiss ink all over the flower. Add a small green rhinestone in the center of one of the stamped flowers on each of the big petals. With a large glue dot adhere it to the front of your box. Adhere a large flat backed pearl from the same kit in the center.
  6. Add your treat to the inside of your box and you're finished! :)
