Happy Birthday Treat Box

Happy Birthday Treat Box

Hi everyone!  I hope this post finds you well!  Thanks for popping in for a visit.  Today I wanted to show you a project I created using the Sunrise Lily Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  This collection has become one of my all time favorites already.  I am in love with the beautiful color palette and those beautiful lilies are sure to brighten anyone’s day.

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Distressed Inks (Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemon), Shimmer Texture Spray, Iridescent Glitter, Orange Flower Soft, Archival Orange Blossom Ink, Trim and Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

For the base (you will need 2 of these), cut a piece of card stock 8 1/2″ x 6″ and score on the long side at the 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ marks.  Then flip on the short edge and score at 1/2″ mark.  For the top (you need 2 of these), cut a piece of card stock 9″ x 2 1/2″ and score on the long side at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″, 6 3/8″ and 8 1/2″ marks.  Then flip on the short edge and score at 1/2″ mark.  To trim the base I cut 8 rectangles 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and if desired you can repeated the same with a different DP for the inside.  I did both.  Attach all the DP paper to both sides of the base before assembling since it is much easier to do so now.  Fold on all the score lines and use your boning tool to get a nice sharp line.  Cut the score marks on the long 1/2″ flaps since these will be glued to the top and bottom of the box.  Attach the 1/2″ short flaps to the opposite side of the other piece of base to form the base of the box and repeat for the 2 top pieces.  Finish the top and bottom with two – 5″ Hexagons to use as the top and bottom of the box.  The flowers were stamped with Tuxedo Black and distressed with Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemon distressed inks and then lightly spritzed with Shimmer Texture Spray and dusted with Iridescent Glitter.  The Stamens were dipped in Orange Flower Soft for that finishing touch.  The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped with Archival Orange Blossom Ink and the box was finished off with some lovely trim and ribbon.

A step-by-step tutorial of this box can be found here.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
