Treat Box and Fancy Fold Card

Hi blog friends and welcome to this Wednesday’s Heartfelt Creations’ Inspiration!  So glad you could pop by.

I want to share with you today a cute little treat box and yet another fun Fancy Fold!

First let me show you the treat box.  I just love the handle on the box using the lovely new Raindrops on Roses die.

I particularly love the inside of the card, showing of the lovely Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses Collection!  The collection papers just get better and better!

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Memento Ink – Elderberry and Olive Grove, Bling from my stash, Distressed Ink, adhesive and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by building a box 4″ wide x 2 1/2″ deep x 3 1/2″ tall and made a matching top.  For the flap the opens I used a template from another box that I had but for you to make it simply take a strip of card stock 9″ x 2″, measure to find the center of the long edge and measure 2″ out from the center on both sides.  This will be the outside of the flap.  Next, cut starting from the edge of the marks for the edge of the flap to the bottom outside corners of the paper to allow the flap to open and close.  Scor at the edges of the flap marks and insert into the opening.  I made a 4″ x 4″ strip of paper scored in the middle and used this to attach the flap to the bottom of the box.  Decorate the box using your favorite dies cuts, flowers and sentiments and finish the top of the box off with 2 die cuts from the Raindrops and Roses Die to form a handle.  Finally, fill with your favorite sweet and enjoy!

Other products: Off White Card Stock, Delicate Doilies, Memento Ink – Elderberry and Olive Grove, Embossing Powder, Lace and Bling from my stash, Distressed Ink, adhesive and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making a basic 5″ x 7″ card and using the template provided make the inside out of the same card stock.  Attach the 2 pieces together and decorate with your favorite DP.  For the front of the card I made a rosette from a 1 1/2″ strip of DP and centered that between my sentiment and a die cut from the raindrops on roses die set.  Of course, no card is complete without a flower which I made using the Majestic Morning Background PreCut Set and coordinating die.

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did making it for you.  Hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
