Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop September Showcase

Good Afternoon! Welcome to September’s Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop.

Today I’m sharing some treat boxes which I make using the Whimsy & Wonder specialty designer series paper and the Pretty Pillowbox Dies.

I designed them for a Christmassy occasion but the idea can be used for any occasion: birthdays, Halloween, wedding or party favours etc.

To create the pillowbox treats:

I used the pillowbox die and the stripy sheet of DSP. Fold at the score lines (being especially careful with the edges to the flaps). I adhered the top flap down. The sides were folded inward but left unglued to ensure they could be opened without damaging the box. (It also makes a great idea for keepsakes box for tiny trinkets or gifting jewellery…)

I decorated it with fussy cutting the baubles from the same set of DSP and attaching a white bow.

Tip: If you're using DSP to create the boxes, they're not as sturdy as the Kraft sheet. Place the die cut sheet on your palm and use a bone folder to curve the middle of the box so when you start gluing it together to close it, it maintains a curvy shape rather than falling flat.

To create the larger case for the pillowboxes:

I cut out two pieces of the pillowbox dies with the snowflake patterns and used the corresponding dies to create two holes at the top for both the pieces. I glued the bases to each other and used some ribbon to attach the two top pieces together. To decorate I used the Wonderful Snowflakes and adhered a fussy cut bow (from the DSP sheet with the baubles).

This project is very easy to make if you wanted to have a go yourself.

Here is a list of the items I used:
