Valentine's Day Treat Box Tutorial

Valentine's Day Treat Box

1. Start with a 4-1/2" by 6" piece of Basic White Card Stock. Stamp your images. On the sample I used the "Heartfelt" stamp set and Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, and Memento Tuxedo Black Inks.

2. On the 4-1/2" end, score at 1", 2", 3", and 4". Rotate one turn and score at 1".

3. Use one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut a window out of the middle as shown. Adhere a velum "window" to the inside of the box. Cut the tabs as shown; bevel if desired. Ad a strip of Tear & Tape to the 1/2" strip.

4. Use a bone folder to crease the score lines and then form your box, bringing the left side over the top of the thin strip with the Tear & Tape and seal.

5. With the window facing toward you, fold in the bottom side flaps, then the back flap, and then fold the front flap toward the back and seal with a Mini Glue Dot.
6. Fill a 1" by 6" cello bag with candy, leaving some head room. Tie the top with Baker's Twine. Insert bag into the treat box. You may need to rearrange the candy so that the cello bag fits nicely.

7. With the window facing toward you, push the sides of the top of the box in toward the center and pinch the top of the box closed.

8. Seal the box closed. You can staple it or use Mini Glue Dots or Stampin' Dimensionals.

9. Score a 1" by 2" piece of Real Red Card Stock at 1". Adhere to the top of the box.

10. Tie a bow in coordinating ribbon and adhere to the box with a Mini Glue Dot.
