Quick, Easy Treat Box Tutorial

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.
