Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson |Bunny Hop 2020 – Skinny Treat Box
Hi everyone 🙂 I’m back with the second project in this years’ Bunny Hop series, a skinny treat box, the perfect size to hold 6 mini eggs. These boxes are pretty small so I used A Wish For Everything (from the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue) for the sentiment, but the cute bee from Welcome Easter does make an appearance to dress them up a little 🙂
These sweet little boxes only use a 2-3/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock, which means you’ll be able to make three from both A4 & Imperial cardstock sizes! I just love it when a project is super economical and this is one of them 🙂
After I’d scored the cardstock I used a die from the Ornate Frames Dies (a carryover from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue) to cut a window towards the front of my box, this is optional and you could keep them solid cardstock and just add a little more decoration to dress them u,p which would make them even quicker to make.
TIP: Fold along the long edge score lines before cutting out your window, the frame around the window is very narrow and it’s a little tricky to fold it afterwards.
I adhered a small piece of Window Sheet with glue dots to the inside of my boxes to keep my goodies inside and then finished putting them together. I used a combination of Tear & Tape and Tombow to adhere the tabs and added a finger notch with the 1/2″ Circle Punch for easy opening.
To dress up my boxes and help keep them closed I added 1″ x 5″ band of Subtles DSP around one end and added a bow of Polka Dot Tulle which adds a bit of texture and keeps the tags in place.
The tags were die cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock using the Trio Of Tags Dies (a carryover from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue), this is definitely a time saver as you can cut three tags with just one pass 🙂
I used the coordinating ink colours to stamp Happy Easter, from the A Wish For Everything stamp set and then added that cute bee and a few Gingham Gala Flower Sequins to dress them up, sweet & simple 🙂
Here’s the How To:
Finished Size: 4-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ x 3/4″
Cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 11″
Window Sheet: 1-3/16″ x 3-1/4″
DSP: 1″ x 5″
- Score @ 3/4″ (on both edges of the 2-3/4″ side)
- Score @ 3/4″, 5-1/8″, 5-7/8″ & 10-1/4″ (on the 11″ side)
- Fold and burnish the long 3/4″ score lines and die cut a window from the lid (optional)
- Fold and burnish the rest of the score lines and trim tabs as shown
- Adhere a piece of window sheet on the inside of the box with glue dots
- Apply Tear & Tape to the tabs & Tombow (optional) and assemble the box as shown
- Use a small circle punch to cut out a finger notch in the box lid (optional)
- Create a belly band with the 1″ x 5″ piece of DSP to keep the box securely closed and stop the back ends from flaring open (optional)
- Decorate as desired
These little boxes are so cute and I love that they can hold 6 mini eggs – a reasonable treat size. I have the Lindt Milk Chocolate eggs in mine, but the Cadbury mini eggs fit perfectly as well and I’m sure there’s lots of other small treats (edible & non-edible) that would fit too, tiny toys, makeup & jewellery are just a few ideas that spring to mind.
