St. Patrick's Day Treat Box Tutorial

Here's a fun little tutorial I did for the February issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. And since St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, it's the perfect time to share it with everyone.


Print template onto desired cardstock and cut out along solid lines.


Make folds along the dotted lines. Tip: Use an embossing stylus to help make the folds along the curved lines.


Apply ink to folded edges. Lay piece flat on table with the inside side of the cardstock facing the table. Apply double sided tape to the two flaps along the arched side of the box.


Bring the right side flaps together and then the left side flaps together to form a fry container. Set box to the side.


Using Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies, cut a circle and scalloped circle. I used the second smallest of each of the dies. Apply desired ink and attach the circle on top of the scalloped diecut.


Stamp heart shape three time to mimic a clover. Using the same color ink pad and a Fantastix tool, draw the clover stem. Tip: Using Fantastix allows an exact color match to any stamped image since you can use the same ink color.


Stamp desired sentiment.


Attach ribbon around box and add stamped medallion. The box can them be filled and any type of goodies.

I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and I'd love to see your take on the treat box.
