SUO186 Triangular Treat Box- Just for You
Since I do not own any current Stampin’ Up! sets that feature coffee, cupcakes, candy, tea or other "sweet treats" , I decided to create a Triangular Treat Box using this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers (see written tutorial here and tutorial video here).
I wanted to incorporate two of my favorite items from the Holiday Mini Catalog- the Cat Punch and the Quilt Builder Framelits™ Dies. I had die-cut the "quilts" from pieces of background paper that I used in other cards (fyi- I tend to die cut shapes from cardstock layers that are “hidden” by other layers to reduce the postage costs as well as re-purposing cardstock that would otherwise be wasted:-)).
I am also linking to the Just Us Girls #416 Color Week Challenge (Bermuda Bay is a shade of green, right?) and the International Art & Soul #19 “Not Square or Rectangles” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team’s samples or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this project:
1). Using the Big Shot™ with the Quilt Builder Framelits™ and die cut four separate quilt images – one each from Whisper White, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay cardstock (I use a piece of Glad® Press ‘n Seal® (PNS) to hold all of the quilt die pieces together). Arrange the pieces onto the Basic Black backing square, just peel off each piece of the PNS and adhere to the quilt (I used the Two Way Glue Pen).
2). Using the tutorial linked above for the Triangular Treat Box, score a piece of 3” x 11” Rich Razzleberry cardstock at the 3”, 6” and 9” mark. Continue with the tutorial to create the bottom from a scrap piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and assemble the box.
3). Use the Cat Punch to punch out three cats from Basic Black cardstock, layer the three together to create the cat embellishment.
4). Trim the quilt (my frame around the quilt was a bit “off” so I trimmed it to even up the sides- if you are able to die-cut it perfect, then you may not need to trim- lol!). Add the assembled quilt to the front of the box.
5). Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner by hand (I used the retired Hexagon Punch). Mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and trim around the edges. Add to the back of the Cat Punch image and mount onto the front of the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
6). Add a Rhinestone to the center of the quilt to finish off the box. Fill with “Sweet Treats” and enjoy! A quick and easy treat box for any occasion!
