As promised, here is the companion project for my 'Silly Mummy' card because life is scary without chocolate! Wouldn't this make a great classroom treat bag? Or a Halloween party treat bag? It is so versatile and can easily be adapted to any occasion! My treat box is in fact adapted from a version that was introduced to Stampin' Up! demonstrators at a recent regional event.
To create the box, use 2-7/8" x 6-3/4" cardstock; score horizontally at 2" and 4-3/4"; score vertically at 1/2" and 2-3/8". Crease the score lines using the Bone Folder. Where the score lines meet, create a "V"-shaped notch to facilitate folding and assembly. Die cut two tags in matching cardstock using the Two Tags Bigz Die and adhere them around the assembled box and decorate as desired! I stamped the sentiment and hand cut a banner and then adhered the banner to a toothpick. EZ Peasy!
Be warned though, choose another treat to put in your treat box. Mine is filled with white chocolate candy corn M&M's. They were chosen for their bright colors and I thought that they did not sound appetizing at all...sadly I was proven wrong. They are rediculously yummy and I would not reccomend bringing them into your home!!!
