Hi there! Shellye here today with a handmade gift idea that will showcase your awesome crafty, as well as yummy baking skills. I recently ran across a similar idea in a magazine and thought it would be the perfect project to make with the new "Wishes" Collection.
This unique cookie, treat box uses just one 12X12 sheet of paper and a section of acetate overlay.
(I had a few of these in my stash that had printing on one end...I just trimmed the printed end off and used the clear portion for the top).
To make the box:
1.Score "Merriment" 12X12 paper at 1.5", 3" 4.5",
7.5", 9" and 10.5" marks; turn paper horizontally
2.Score paper at 1.5" and 10.5"
3.Fold the 3" and 9" score marks in towards the center of the paper
4.Fold the 4.5" and 7.5" score marks up to form the 'sides' of the
5.Turn the paper; fold in at the 1.5" and 10.5" score marks.
6.Where the horizontal and vertical score marks intersect, cut a slit into
the paper just up to where the marks meet; glue edges together to form box
7.Cut a piece of acetate to measure 5.5" X 9"; score (lengthwise)
1.5" from each edge and crease the acetate.Apply high-tac adhesive to ONE of the sides
and adhere to the inside of the box.
8.Embellish the top of the box with ribbon, doilies and pieces from the
"Wish" Enhancement and Details sheets.
You may wish to line your box with wax paper or tissue before filling with goodies.
Now, who wouldn't want to receive such a sweet treat!?!
