On to my creation! I whipped up this little treat box and coordinating mini card. My card is only 4" by 4", so you get an idea of the size of each one!
I used the Garden Cafe collection and I have to say, I love these bright and cheery papers -- they just make me want to smile!
To get started I began with two pieces of paper that measure 8-1/2" by 4-1/2" (paper is Petunia's Pastries)
Scor-Pal, I scored 2" around the two shortest sides and 2" along one -- only one of the longest sides. I also scored on the 1" and 7-1/2" lines, stopping at the lower score line. I inserted some graphical guides for you to "see!"
Scor-Tape like so.....
Add some Scor-Tape on the outside like so....
The next step is one that really isn't all that necessary. I wanted my flap to be two tone, so I cut the edge off my flap and then flipped the paper, using the opposite side of the Clover Cantina Varnish paper at the top. I sewed the two pieces together and then added some teal ribbon as a kind of cummerbund closure. Then, I accented with a "Delights" accent in Biscotti. Just that simple! Now I can get some candies or goodies to stick inside to give as a little thank you gift to someone special!
I wanted to create a kind of gift set, so I created this coordinating 4" by 4" card using the same papers that I used for my treat box. After layering, adding some stitching and pinking the edges, I added a band of the same teal twill ribbon, used one of my Spellbinders Beaded Circle Dies as the front mat for my card and then accented with another one of American Crafts chipboard stickers - it's called "Details Trifle."
And here's another look at the finished project!
