Project Tuesday - Treat Box

Happy Tuesday & thanks for stopping by! Today’s project is for this week’s challenge over at Project Tuesday. This week we created a fun treat box. Our inspiration came from Julie Buhler’s blog “Paper Pleasing Idea’s. This was the first time I have ever created one of these and it won’t be my last. This makes a wonderful project especially around Halloween & Christmas!

For my design, I started with white cardstock. I then layered the panels with Pumpkin pie and some retired Halloween designer paper by Stampin’ Up! The oval was cut using my Creative Memories cutting system. I then used the Nestabilities for the scalloped oval and added some chunky glitter by Martha Stewart.
For some extra fun, I created a border using the NEW Martha Stewart Boo Punch. After putting the treat box together, I added the bag of candy. To finish the project I added the lid along with some slits so the ribbon would slide through. The tag was the last thing I added along with little Cuppy.

We hope you will stop by and play along, most of our projects only take a few minutes to create. Grab you favorite stamps and supplies and join us each week!! Last week we created a fun a surprise gift card holder. For more fun samples using this project idea, please stop the Project Tuesday blog.

How cute! These will make wonderful treat boxes for my students at school AND my homeroom mothers. What a neat idea! I like how you made the oval window in the front and the little figures along the bottom. The glitter looks terrific!
