Package It Pretty Tutorial Part 1

Isn't it nice to have a pretty package for your treats you give away. There are three different size treat packages that I like to keep on hand. The first are these cute little boxes. Four truffles fit perfectly in the box. Two cookies also snuggle right down in there.

so here's the how to:

you will need: solid card stock, paper cutter, glue, pattern paper, ribbon and other embellishments, scissors, and clothesline clips (not necessary but pretty handy)

For a treat box that is 3 inches by 2 inches start with a piece of solid cardstock measuring 7 inches square. Score all four sides of your square at 5 inches.

There will be four mini scored squares in each corner. You are going to make four cuts, one on each of the inside score lines of the mini square.

Trim the corners of your paper.

Fold in the corners and secure with glue.

I secure these with clothes pins for a few seconds while they dry.
Using a twelve inch long by 3 inch wide strip of patterned paper score at the following: 2, 4, 7, 9 inches.
Place your box in the middle.
There are different ways that you can secure the outer paper. You can use glue, ribbon, tape, brads or eyelets. Embellish and enjoy...
