Triangle Treat Box Tutorial

As promised earlier this week, here is the fun little project that you can attach the torn fabric flowers to:

It's a triangle shaped treat box, which is just perfect for filling up with chocolates, jewelry, a gift card, etc.! My friend/co-worker Margaret showed me how to create these little boxes, (thanks, Margaret!!), so I am sharing her instructions with you!

Begin by cutting a piece of cardstock 4" wide x 10" long. (I used double sided gingham checked cardstock so that the inside of the box would look as cute as the outside!) Score at 5" on the long side:

With a pencil, lightly mark the center at 2" on each of the 4" ends:

Score at an angle from the 2" mark to the center score mark, repeating for all 4 edges:

Fold all 4 of these scored edges upward so that your triangle box looks like this:

Fold along the center score line so that your triangle box will close:

Align the ends and punch holes in the ends of your triangle box using a Crop-a-Dile:

Using Terrifically Tacky Tape, attach the fabric flower to the top of your box:

Tear a strip of fabric to match your flower, keeping the ends frayed to give a "home-spun" look, and lace the torn fabric through the holes so that your box can be tied shut:

Fill the box with treats, tie to close, and you've got a cute and unique little gift to brighten someones day!

Happy Scrappin'!!
