Easy Triangular Treat Box

I’m on the Design Team for Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog and I’m hosting this weeks’s challenge- Use Your Stuff #294 Something New.  Please visit Use Your Stuff and enter something you’ve made with new product.  I chose to make this Easy Triangular Treat Box with Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous new paper, Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Paper: Painted with Love Specialty DSP, Gold Foil, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack, Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (heart), 1 -1/4″ punch, 1′ punch

 

Directions to make the Easy Triangular Treat Box-

Need 2- 2″ x 8″ strips of cardstock or DSP

As shown on “A” use a ruler and draw a line from the 1″ mark to the score line at 3″ at the top of the cardstock.  Do this again from the 1″ mark to the 3″ score line at the bottom of the cardstock.  Do the same thing from the other end to the 5″ score line.  Use your bone folder and score on all four of these lines.

As shown on “B” use a ruler and draw a line from the 1/2″ mark to the score line at 3″ at the top of the cardstock.  Do this again from the 1/2″ mark to the 3″ score line at the bottom of the cardstock.  Do the same thing from the other end to the 5″ score line.  Cut the cardstock along the four lines you drew.  My picture shows the cardstock with these pieces already removed.

Put Tear and Tape on the center square of the A piece. Line up the center square of the B piece and adhere together.  Put Tear and Tape on one side of the B piece.

Line up the sides of the A pieces behind the B piece and adhere.  The back of the box is open to put candy in.  Bring it up and put a hole through all the layers and add ribbon to hold the box together.

Saturday night we went to church and then had awesome fajitas made by Steve.  We played a game of Cribbage and then just like that…another kid went back to college.  We’ll miss you Ryan.  Well actually, I’ll see you tomorrow when we meet you in Ankeny to bring you the things you forgot.  What a smart kid to go to college 45 min from our house.  OK, so I must admit Ryan didn’t technically forget anything.  He has a room mate gift exchange and I had written on the package it was from Ryan.  He told me it was Secret Santa and I wasn’t supposed to put his name on it.  I took it in my Stamping Studio to make a cute tag to put over the name, got distracted and didn’t make the tag and didn’t bring back the gift.  Oops!  I guess Ryan would’ve been better off not mentioning the name on the package.

Have a great week!

    Hi Pat,
    I still have Abby home for one more week, so we’re not quite done with Christmas break. Have fun on your quilt retreat. I’d love to see pictures of the cards you made yesterday. What is a UFO Challenge?
    Blessings,
    Beth 🙂

    Thanks Robbye. I have a template for almost every box I’ve made. Makes it so much easier to make it the next time. 🙂

    Cute project, I love that dsp. The template really helps me see how to do this project more easily.

    I love that card too.
    So empty house for awhile, until spring break! So you will have more time to spend in your beautiful studio. Enjoy!
    I am going on a quilt retreat Thursday for the weekend but I did take time to make 4-5 very simple cards yesterday. I am in a year long UFO challenge and two months I chose “Make cards”! Lets hope I keep to it.
