Traveler Treat Basket

Hi everyone! Samantha here, bringing you another Stamp It sneaky peek!

 I chose to use this beautiful bird with a traveling sentiment. Since the quote was about traveling, I thought it would be cute on a little treat basket to take on the go. So I made a cute little basket and filled it with some treats.

Here is the finished basket:
 The scoring guides are at the end of this post for those who need a visual.

To put together this treat basket:
Cut a square of cardstock 10.5X10.5inches. I used Kraft cardstock. Then I scored it on all sides 3.5inches in, cut along the sides I could fold up the sides into a box. It made a 3.5inch cube. The handle is 1.5inches thick (I just used the piece I cut off from the 12X12 paper when I cut the paper t0 10.5inches)

To decorate the box, I added some ink to all the edges & added some pretty patterned paper. The Stamp It stamped image was cut out and then I sponged around all the sides with two different inks: Brushed Corduroy & Walnut Stain Distress Inks. Then I wrapped twine around the box and then attached the stamped layer.

And inside I added some peppermints and chocolate chip cookies :)

Here is the scoring guide so you can create this box:
