I like making treat boxes to take to my friends in the nursing home where I worked for 33 years. They love seeing my homemade creations, and a little bit of chocolate often hits the spot. When I saw this versatile Small Box from Leane Creatif, I knew I would get a lot of use out of it. Here are what they look like completed:
They are each large enough to hold approximately 3 chocolate kisses, so they are fairly small. I used a 6x6 piece of paper for each of these.
Here's a picture of the supplies I used on these:
You can see a picture of the die, along with all the extras that come with it. You can make a Santa box, a bride and groom box, and a sheep. I got this on one of the Dies R Us special orders, so it's not currently available. Sign up for the Dies R Us newsletter so you hear about these fun special orders and you won't miss out on these great specials. You can see some other dies I used, too, and I'll explain them as I go.
Here's a picture of everything after I got it die cut. I cut out enough goodies for 3 boxes, then embellishments for each box.
You may have noticed how the boxes curving in. I curled them like they were ribbon in order to get them to look better. Otherwise, they sort of collapsed in on themselves. Here's a photo of just one of them, with the edges curling in:
The bats on this box are a Spellbinders die, but these small bats from Impression Obsession would work just as well.
Each box is held together at the top with twine or ribbon. I found it a little easier to thread twine through the holes.
