All About Baby Treat Boxes

Good morning 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 from Joshua,TX.

Today, I’d like to share with you these adorable treat boxes perfect to thank guests for coming to a baby shower or Reveal party.

I decided to mix it up and use different colors than the other projects but when it comes Color Combinations – The choice is yours!

The supply list will vary between the two projects as I did a “Freestyle Friday” video when I did a live demonstration for a private party. Both projects also required some identical products which I will list after providing individual supplies of each along with measurements used when creating both projects.

The Color Combinations used in these projects are:

*Measurements*

Cardstock 4″×11″ scored at 1″, 5″, 6″ and 10″ on Landscape (11″ long side)

Rotate to Portrait (4″ short side) and score at 1″ and 3″.

DSP – 1 3/4″×3 3/4″

1/4″×3″ Basic White Cardstock

1″ Straight Edge Circle Die

1 1/2″ Scalloped Circle Die

*Instructions*

Burnish all of your score lines with your Bone Folder well.

Using your Paper Snips remove two of the small squares on the 4″ side. Cut up to score lines on remaining pieces. Wedge out small squares just slightly.

Rotate Cardstock and repeat cutting up to score lines and wedging out small squares.

Flip your Cardstock over and add Tear and Tape to the Portait side of the Cardstock where you removed the two small squares. Adhere to the other end of the Cardstock.

Fold in the small flaps to the inside of the box and one of the rectangular pieces, add Tear and Tape to the remaining rectangular piece and adhere together.

*Note*

Do not seal up the top of your box.

*Instructions*

Add the DSP to the front of your box. Stamp onesie image and die cut with your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. Die Cut your circles.

Adhere the small circle to the center of the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal Adhesive.

*Keep It Simple*

Adhere the onesie to the center of the scalloped circle.

*Step It Up*

Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the onesie. Stamp the “thank you” sentiment to the 1/4″ piece of Basic White Cardstock. Use the Pick Your Banner Punch to create banner and trim off excess. Add a Mini Glue Dot to one end and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the other end and secure in place.

Using your Take Your Pick Tool add a jewel to the sentiment.

*Final Step*

Lay a fair amount of ribbon under and over the box and trim. I make sure that there’s a fair amount on each side of the box. Tie a knot on top of the box to keep the top closed. If the ribbon slides just slightly during the tieing process – it is okay – just slide the ribbon back to center.

*Note*

I ran out of my Smoky Slate DSP so for the little boy Treat Box I used the same measurement listed above for the DSP and created my own DSP using the Stampin’ Blend Markers listed above, a ruler and a piece of grid paper. You can absolutely use the Stampin’ Write Markers to do this as well. Whichever you choose to use to create this project, make sure that you clean your ruler with your Stamp Shammy between colors.

This project isn’t just for baby showers or gender Reveal parties. Stampin’ Up has a variety of products that can convert this project into any any occasion project. I’ve done them for baby showers, birthdays, holidays, weddings and it is by far my most favorite box template for all occasions.
