Tutorial: Sweet Treats Box & the Monthly Challenge!

The June Challenge is to create Tags, Bags or Boxes using at least one Crafter's Companion product.  This was the perfect opportunity to break out the Sweet Treat Papercraft Collection CD-ROM and the accompanying Sweet Treat Boards for the Ultimate Tool (which can all be purchased together in a great bundle).


Here's what Stephanie shared on her blog...

I decided to create the Popcorn Box & Lid for the challenge project and since the inside of the box will be visible, I printed two pieces of two sided designer paper from the CD-ROM (which gives your box a more finished look).

All you have to do is print the cupcakes on one side, and then re-insert your paper into the printer to print the yellow patterned paper on the other side.  I also printed a sheet of tags from the CD-ROM to decorate my box.


The Sweet Treat board fit right on top of your Ultimate Tool (or they can be used separately).


When you stack them together, your embossing surface is flush.


Two make the popcorn box you have to cut out two of the box images from the top left.  Some tutorials recommend using a spray adhesive to hold your paper in place.  I found by lining up the edge of my paper with the top corner of my board, I had no trouble putting it back in place when I needed to look underneath to help find my scoring path.  Here's my first piece after I scored it.


For the second piece, you won't need the bottom of the box.  Here are my two pieces after being cut and and folded.


I used strong two-sided tape to adhere my box together ... see how the double-sided paper looks on the inside.


I decided to use some coordinating red textured cardstock for the lid for my pop corn box.  Here is the portion from the Sweet Treat Plate that you need to use.


I adhered the top using more double-sided tape and then decorated it using more of the designer paper, my tag, and a flower.


I decided I wanted a latch to keep my lid closed, so I used two decorative brads and some twine as a closure.


Here's a look at the finished product.


It's the perfect little box to hold some sweet treats.
