Hi scrappers, once again it's my turn to share a project at She's A Sassy Lady. As of late, I seem to have become quite the treat bag aficionado, and I figured, why change a good thing now? Lol! I also felt like since we're quickly approaching Easter you, my fellow scrappers, might appreciate a little inspiration.
The box I chose is from the online Silhouette store, but you can certainly find something similar on several Cricut cartridges.
Here is the basic box cut and scored. I decided to personalize it and create a window. I used a Spellbinders die and taped it on the inside of the box before I ran it through the Cuttlebug. You can see that in the picture below.
Then I cut a piece of of vellum and glued it to the inside of the box. This way the recipient can get a little peak of what's inside. You could also use acetate if you prefer.
Even though I have a window I wanted to add this sweet little image of a bunny carrying his Easter eggs. He was easy to color and would be fairly quick to duplicate if you wanted to make a large quantity of treat boxes. I also added some dimensional pearls to the image.
Below is a picture of the assembled box. As you can see there is a flap that folds down to close it up.
Of course I had to add a button and some twine to the enclosure. Honestly, I can find a place for a button on nearly every project I create.
I decided to "frame" my image and used one of the same dies as above, to create it. I did a little inking around the edges and added some dimensional adhesive.
