Hello friends,  It is April 3rd and time just keeps on marching by.  I have been busy.  I’ve making April THANK YOU GIFTS.  These gifts are for all of my customers who order from me this month.  I call these little treat boxes Butterflies and Bunnies.

I love the combination of ruffles, polka dots, lace, and the wood texture that this treat box shows off.   These little treat boxes hold candy or any little gift you choose to give.  I chose to fill it with a chocolate bunny.

Below is a photo of the treat box when it is empty.   As usual, my project has a country feminine feel.  I’m very happy with the soft touches and the way the box turned out.  I hope all my customers love it too.

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cut Early Espresso card stock at 3-1/2 X 6-1/2
  2. Score on the 3-1/2 side at 1/4,3/4,2-3/4,3-1/4
  3. Score on the 6-1/2 side at 4 and 4-1/2
  4. Designer Series Paper 1-3/4 x 2-3/4 and 1-3/4 x 1-3/4

It will look like this after scoring:

 

 

Cut on score lines to form box.  After cutting it will look like this

Next, punch the top with the scallop tag punch. Burnish all your little box score lines and fold them in.  Place tear and tape on the outside tabs.  Place tear and tape on the inside box top and the outside box top.  That tape holds on the ribbons. Tip: Add your ribbon before you assemble.  Add your designer series after assembly.

I embellished the front of my box using the Butterfly Duet Punch, Powder Pink card stock (powder pink will retire June 3) and the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  One clear Rhinestone Jewel finishes off the look.

NOTE:  I forgot to list the DSP in the product list.  It is Wood Textures 6×6 designer series paper Item # 144177 – $11.00

Come see these treats at OPEN HOUSE on Thursday, April 4th from noon until 8 p.m.

Have a great day! Live Loved my friends, Beverlee Product List
