Window Box Treat Tutorial




I designed this "box" to fit a packet of cocoa and I was really excited when I learned that I could make it with a half sheet of regular sized cardstock! It holds a Peppermint Marshmallow Pop (RECIPE HERE) very nicely, and I just think it looks like a window box that sits under a window and holds flowers.

The snowman is colored with Copic markers and I used my Juice Lid Embossing Technique on the red tag.


Here are the basic instructions. Start with cardstock that is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Score along the short side at 1" and 4 1/2".

Rotate and score along the long side at 1/2", 4" (but just on the edges-see photo) 5 1/2" and 7".


Cut along the dotted lines, according to photo.

Fold along the score lines to form box (fold two flaps to the back according to the photo).
I have some other things in mind for this "window box", but I would love to see what ideas you come up with, so leave a link if you decide to give it a try!

Julie,
I think about making these for my girls teachers and school staff on the last day of school. If I start now I should be finished by then lol. I love this idea, I wonder what else I can fill them with, maybe candies too!

You have such great ideas, very inspiring.

I love this little treat box. I made them in sunny spring colors as favors for my MIL's bridge club. I put in yellow grass and will add chocolate kisses wrapped in pastels. I don't know how to add picture here but you can see them at http://designbydonna.blogspot.comm
