Another sneak peek today but this time I am sharing the treat boxes I have made for my Stamp-a-Stack event on the 6th May at Manor Farm, Bourn. I decided on a summer/seaside theme for the projects that the ladies will be making and wanted a little sweet treat to help them get into the mood.
I cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into a 5½” by 7¾”. Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool I scored on the long side at ½”, 1”, 6¾” & 7¼”. I then rotated the cardstock 90⁰ and scored at ½”, 2½”, 3” & 5” on the short side. I folded and burnished all the score lines using my Bone Folder before cutting and forming the tabs and box closures at either end using scissors – see picture.
Before putting the box together I stamped an aquarium scene working from the bottom up to the top. I used Dapper Denim, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Mint Macaron inks to do this. I like to do my stamping after the box is scored and ready for assembling as I can see exactly where to put all the images to create my scene. After the stamping was complete I added Fast Fuse Adhesive to the side tabs and closed the box. The base and top openings then just tuck in.
I added some Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon to the top of the box along with a sentiment from the Designer Tee stamp set which was die cut using the Big Shot and a tag from the Curvy Keepsake Thinlit Dies and tied on using Night of Navy Baker’s Twine. Inside is a gorgeous Guylian Seashell bar of chocolate……..yum……
