Easter Treat Box Tutorial


Happy Easter Everyone!

Last week I made the carrot treat boxes that came in my March The Stamps of Life Card Kit that I showed in my unboxing video here.  There is a giveaway hidden inside that video if you are interested :-).  The treat boxes are for my grandson for Easter so I made them a little more rustic in style.  I didn’t think he wanted a lot of pink and purple but all the papers in this kit are amazing with those gorgeous spring colors.  Below are my steps to create them.

I decided to line the “carrot top” with the green and white striped paper.  I cut a strip just larger than the size I needed, turned the paper over and traced around the shape with a pencil.  I did this twice for each side of the box.

I cut around my trace lines using my craft knife but scissors work just as well.  It’s up to you what you use per your comfort level.

I used Glossy Accents to adhere the paper to the acrylic box.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I cut a strip of this paper highlighting the colors I thought my grandson would like.  The two rows of polka dots were the perfect width for this box.  Not too overwhelming so the goodies would still show through.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I added two strips of Scor-tape to the back of the paper.  I applied it to all 4 sides of the carrot, lining it up with the previous side and trimming to size with my craft knife.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wanted to add a little tag that had a little boy look so I used one of the shapes from my Stampin’ Up! Chalk Talk dies and an old stamp set I had with a caterpillar.  It’s a cute spring look for a boy theme I think.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I used white ink and the stamp set from the same card kit for the title.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I thought the caterpillar needs a little green so I added some Stickles.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the finished box.  It’s super cute in person 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
