Good evening and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.

Again, I have to apologize that the Pineapple Punch Cardstock and DSP may have sold out with them retiring soon but I can assure you that this project will work out perfectly with any color in our Core Colors and very likely the *NEW* Bumblebee will make a beautiful substitute.

If you’re just now finding this Blog and project and interested in making this project with the Little Elephant Stamp Set and Elephant Builder Punch. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT! Both the Little Elephant Stamp Set and Elephant Builder Punch are on the Retirement List and will be gone forever June 3rd if they don’t sell out before then. The punches are another item that Stampin’ Up is slowly retiring but it is okay. The Layering Circles Dies will work with this project.

The good news is that both the Ruched 1/4″ Daffodil Delight Ribbon and the Purple Posy 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbons are carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Now that we’ve had that whole discussion, let’s jump into how this treat box is made.

First, we’re going to start off with a piece of Cardstock measuring 4″×11″ scored 1″, 5″ 6″ and 10″ on the 11″ side. You will need to rotate the Cardstock to the 4″ side and score at 1″ and 3″. You will need a piece of DSP measuring 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.

Next, you’re going to want to fold and burnish those score lines well. So that you have a better understanding of what I did next, I’m going to share several photos for final assembly of the box.

Step One

Step One: Remove the top two small squares at the top of the Cardstock.

Step Two

Step Two: Cut up to the score lines of the two small squares and slightly wedge.

Step Three

Step 3: Cut up to the score line on the small squares at the bottom of the box and remove one square.

I like to fold two of the long flaps back so I can remind myself which part of the box will be my top opening portion so I’m not adding Tear and Tape to that portion of the box. Again, I’m going to show you in photos where I place the tape for final assembly.

Tear and Tape Placement A

On the front side of the box place Tear and Tape on the first long flap, and the two small squares.

Tear and Tape Placement B

Flip your box over and place your Tear and Tape on the medium size flap on the end with the one small square remaining.

Final Assembly: Whew!! If you think that was confusing reading, it’s okay, I had a difficult time explaining it on this end. I would’ve done much better helping someone in a workshop than I have trying to type that out. LOL But at last we made it!

What you’re going to want to do is flip the box back over to where you see the three pieces of Tear and Tape. We’re going to start by removing the piece of Tear and Tape on the small flap in the center of the box and adhere it to the inside of the long flap with the Tear and Tape on the bottom.

Final Assembly Step One

Next, we’re going to remove the Tear and Tape from the long flap and adhere it to the other long flap to create the bottom of the box.

Final Assembly Step Two

Then we’re going to remove the Tear and Tape from the small flap and fold the medium flap without Tear and Tape to seal.

Final Assembly Step Three

Finally, we’re going to remove the Tear and Tape from the medium flap and adhere it over and Viola!! Like magic, we have a box!

Final Assembly Step 4

Adding the Detail:

Now for the fun, let’s get the front of the box decorated. I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere all the circles and scallops together. I put Stampin’ Diminsionals on the back of the Elephant. I also used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP to the front of the box and to adhere the Elephant to the front of the box.

I didn’t really measure how much of the Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon I used, I just sort of closed the top flaps of the box and used a fair amount to tie the bow and trimmed it back a little.
