Do you need last minute gifts that are inexpensive and quick to make? I made several of these treat boxes in an afternoon. The directions are below. My scribbles may make this project look complicated, but it really isn’t. I hope you give it a try.
The credit for this idea goes to Sandra Beus.
What You Need
9″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock
4 coordinating pieces of DSP
1 – 4″ x 2 1/2″
1 – 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″
1 – 1″ x 5 1/2″
1 – 4 x5 1/2″
Stamps and whatever you want to decorate the card with
On the 8 1/2″ side score at 2 1/2″ and again at 3″.
Turn to the 9″ side and score at 1″ and 5″
Begin on the side with the 1″ score line, score at 1/2″ and only to the second score line as shown.
Score again only to the second score line at
5 1/2″ and 6″
Cut out the penciled spaces.
After the penciled spaces are cut out you should be left with a shape like this. Fold on the score lines to make crisp folds.
The pocket is folded toward the front.
The side flap is folded as a pocket for the inside of the card.
Tip: Adhere the pocket portion to the front before adhering the 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of DSP. The DSP will hide the glued sides in the pocket to give a cleaner finish.
Decorate the card as you want and fill it with small gifts for family or friends.
