Today is the March Candy Hearts Team Meeting, and I’m sharing with you some little treat boxes I made for the Hearts. Each sliding box holds 5 Andes Mints… because they’re green… for St. Patrick’s Day. I used the Amazing Life stamp set (which contains a clover image,) Call Me Clover (of course) card stock and ink, and Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper. I used two different patterns of the Designer Series Paper that have a lot of Call Me Clover in them.
While I made these for St. Patrick’s Day, the sentiment could easily be used to celebrate a new job, a move to a new city, or any new adventure.
One more thing, before I get to today’s project. Today is my sister Judy’s birthday. Yep, she’s a St. Patrick’s Day baby.
Happy Birthday to the best sister ever!
Here’s what I made:
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Call Me Clover card stock (CS) cut to 7-3/4″ x 8-1/8″, then scored along all four sides at 1/2″, 1-3/8″, 1-7/8″, and 2-3/4″
- NOTE: On certain projects, I find it easier to score this way, starting at each of the four corners, than to score along the whole side at once. I think it make the sides more symmetrical.
- also scored along both 7-3/4″ sides at 2-7/8″ and 3-3/8″, only down to the second score line
- Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2-11/16″ x 6-3/4″
- Whisper White CS cut to 2″ x 2-3/8″
- NOTE: I actually used the Simply Scored tool for all the scoring, since there was so much of it, and I was making so many boxes.
Cut using Paper Snips:
Stamped with the Amazing Life stamp set:
- sentiment and clover on Call Me Clover ink onto the Whisper White CS
Assembled the sliding box:
- burnished all the folds in the box and cover with a Bone Folder
- flaps on the two longer sides rolled inward to form the sides, and the outermost flap glued onto the bottom of the box
- flaps on the two shorter sides folded inward to form the sides, and the outermost flap glued onto the bottom of the box. The skinnier center part goes between the two long sides, and the diagonal cut lies on top of the long side to create a mitered corner look. I also put a little spot of glue under the diagonally cut section so it would stick to the top of the adjacent side.
- cover wrapped around the box, and pinched around the corners, then folded and burnished on the pinched areas.
- cover wrapped around the box again and the ends glued together, making sure it’s snug, but also loose enough to slide on and off.
- stamped piece glued onto the top of the box cover
