Another cute box

Happy Wednesday! When we had lunch last week, I got this cute treat box from Cheryl. She created this after seeing all of those cute boxes created using the new SU Sizzix envelope die. The die Cheryl used is also a Sizzix die but an old one, probably not in circulation anymore. Just the perfect size for little treats. The tag is a spellbinders die and the stamps are both from Dandelion Designs. I just had to get that treat stamp, so that's why we ended up at J's! Thank you Cheryl for my treat box!! and for helping me spend my money! haha! JK!!
Funny because I started thinking that I must have this die somewhere in my stash and I was right!! I was super excited that I had it and that I could duplicate this treat box! Then I was thinking of alternatives, I think too much yeah? but anyway, I thought anyone could make a similar box without this die since you can't find it, except maybe on ebay? So, if you want to make one of these boxes, here's my take on how I made a box similar to the one I got from Cheryl.
I started with a piece of cardstock (used Pumpkin pie) 3" x 10 1/2" long. Score at 2 1/4", 4 1/2", 6 3/4" and 9". Turn the paper and score at 1 1/2". Cut as shown. This is kind of like that 2, 4, 6, 8 box...

Added adhesive on the end and attached the ends together.

Should look like this:


Then adhere the bottom flaps to close.

Then, I used my super jumbo (blue) marvy punch and punched out 4 black circles
Scored them in half

And attached them to the box! Added a strip of designer paper and that's it! Easy huh! Saved yourself some $ to buy a different die :)


Here's what my finished box looked like. I used this cute Halloween ribbon I got from Fay last year...Thanks Fay! Remember this?!


I just love this stamp "Treats Only Please"...is that cute, or what!? If you create one of these boxes, don't forget to post a link so I can see it!
Thanks for coming by today...I'm off to make a couple Hello Kitty backpacks for my co-worker's grand daughter!
