Twist Top Boxes

These boxes are so much fun!  The box end twists to close and easily open again for access to all the goodies that are placed inside!  The dimensions given below are for the actual box size and do not include the twisted ends.  I thought this would be easier so you would know what you could fit in them.  All boxes are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats, some coming with two different base boxes being machine specific.

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out your box and fold on all the score lines.  Place adhesive (shown with white tape in photo) on the side tabs.
2.  Adhere the tabs to the other side of the box.
3.  This next part is a little tricky :)  Push the twist sides in sort of like a school milk carton (shown in photo).
4.  Then fold one of the sides down, pulling the top layers down as you go around the box.  Again, this takes a little playing with to get it into its shape.  Once you have it there, it is easy-peasy to open and close, I promise!  
5.  Your top should look similar to this now.
6.  Close the bottom of your box with adhesive or in this case, as you did in the steps above.  Fill and embellish as desired!

This box is approximately 5-3/4" x 2-5/8" x 2-5/8"

This box is approximately 5" x 2-5/8" x 2-5/8"

This box is approximately 5" x 2-3/4" x 2-3/4"

This box is approximately 3-1/8" x 2" x 2"

This box is approximately 5-3/4" x 1-3/4" x 1-3/4"

Today I am sharing my new Decorative Gift Boxes!  These boxes are perfect for giving candy, small soaps/lotions, homemade cookies, well really anything you can fit within the 3-1/4" x 3-1/8" x 2-1/4" space (with the backing the boxes are approximately 7" tall)!  The boxes can store flat as well making them easy to have on hand!  All of these are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out your box and the mats/coordinating pieces. Fold the box base on the score lines.
2.  Place adhesive on the side tab and adhere it to the other side of the box.
3.  Pop the box up to form its shape and close the bottom of the box by tucking the flap into the slot.
4-5.  Your box should look like this now.
6.  Adhere your mats on the box in the respective places.  Embellish and fill as desired!

Boo Boxes!

Do you "Boo" your neighborhood? We love to deliver little treats to our neighbors old and young and these little boxes make it so much fun! We fill the box with candy and wait until it is dusk out and then we place the boxes on the door handles and ring the doorbell and run! Once you have been "Boo'd" you are suppose to "Boo" someone else which leads to a lot of fun little treats for everyone and the kids just LOVE it! This box is 9-1/2" x 3-1/4" x 2-1/4" and holds lots and lots of goodies. The file comes with the box base, four decorative panels, the sentiment pieces, the paper elements shown and it is compatible with both the 12x12 and 8x12 mats!

Today I am working with Samantha's stunning Leafy Round Top Box
and the FREE file that is being offered for this hop too!  

This box is easy to put together, but it looks like you spent hours!
Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out the Leafy Round Top Box and the mats. Fold the box on all the score lines.
2.  Adhere the mats to the coordinating areas.  Note:  You can use this box without the mats too!
3.  Place adhesive on the side tab of the box and adhere it to the other side.
4.  Pop the box up to form its shape and push the bottom flap up.
5.  Tuck the two side flaps in, placing the tab under the bottom flap as shown.
6.  Push the top flap down and tuck the tab into the bottom flap.
7.  Your box should look similar to this now.  I used a brown chalk in to ink the edges to give mine a more rustic look.
8.  Next cut out your pieces from the FREE file.  I am also using a leaf from Samantha's Fall Leaves Bag.  I did a release compound path and ungroup to remove the leaf shape from the bag top.  I inked my leaf and the banner pieces.
9.  Adhere the banner pieces together as shown.
10. Place the two small pieces of banner on the banner mat.
11. Use a foam adhesive to adhere the leaf to the center.
12. Fill your box with goodies...mine will have homemade chocolate chip cookies!  Then close the box with ribbon.  Adhere the banner on the front of the box with foam adhesive!

Super easy and quick, which makes it great for giving multiples!  All that detail will have the recipients thinking your spent hours!

Just click on the icon below to finish up the hop!

Happy Hopping!

Halloween Sucker Holders!

These would be perfect treats for the kids, used as classroom favors, or even as place card markers for the Holiday table!  The inside box holds a standard sucker, such as a blow pop.  The holding box is approximately 2” x 1” x 1”.  The files are sizable so you can make them larger or smaller to fit your needs. 

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out your 8 leg pieces and the box.
2.  Bend each leg in half.  Place adhesive on the entire back of two of the legs.
3.  Adhere the legs together - grab one of the adhesive legs and then adhere half of the leg to it.
4.  Grab another leg and adhere half of it on.
5.  Finally grab the second adhesive leg and adhere it in place.  Your legs should look like this.
6.  Repeat the steps for the other four legs.
7.  Next, fold the box on the score lines and place adhesive on the long tab and bottom box flap.
8.  Adhere the box sides together.
9.  Adhere the bottom of the box in place.
10. Grab one of your leg sets and place adhesive along the top curve.
11. Adhere the box and leg set together as shown.  The box and legs should all touch your desk evenly.
12. Adhere the second set of legs on the box.
13. Adhere the face pieces on the one of the circles.
14. Adhere the back circle on.
15. Adhere the spider face on the front as shown.  Cut down your sucker stem and place it in the box!
