Stampin' Up! Eater Treat - tutorial

Hello, as promised yesterday here are the instruction you need to make one of the little treat boxes.  These little boxes are the perfect size for a little treat or thank you gift.

Using Pumkin Pie card stock and the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies, cut one box shape.  I used one of the gift card holder cut out dies across the top right corner at the same time.

Using a 3/4" circle punch, punch out the notched shape - this clever little piece will be the closure for your box.

Using either the Stampin' Trimmer or the Simply Scored tool, score the cut box piece at 2 1/8" and 2 3/4" from the flat edge.

Using a pair of Snips, trim off the tabs at the top and notch out both sides of the squares in the middle.

Burnish all score lines with a Bone Folder and assemble the box using Tombow Liquid Glue.


Decorate the front and the flap with your choice of DSP.  You could also stamp the box or leave it plain if you prefer.  I used one of the Layering Ovals Framelits for the flap which was cut in half.


I stamped and die cut a rabbit and carrot for each box and coloured them with the Stampin' Blends.  I used Basket Bunch, a stamp set which is now sadly retired but I know that many of you have this from last year.

I placed a Mini Stampin' Dimensional behind the punched out circle and adhered in place.


Top Tip

Remove the backing from the Dimensional and position the tab onto the flap and  then press down to adhere.  This helps (a lot) to esnure the flap closes in the correct position!

The most difficult part of this project was inserting the carrots into the treat bags.

I hope these instructions make sense - if not, give me a shout!  Note to self: I really must think about getting to grips with video tutorials ...
