the treat box link

A dear friend of mine, Gloria Stengel, recently had a project on her blog that included a treat box she gave me credit for showing her how to make.

Someone commented on her post, asking if I had a tutorial. First of all, I just have to say it is a miracle there is something I can show Gloria how to do LOL - she is the queen of creative and original ideas!

This is NOT my original design. I had seen a sample on display at Stamping Details that used a full 12x12  piece of cardstock to create a box and loved the look of it. I wanted a smaller box, and quickly realized that any square divided into a 9 section grid can be used to create the box. I made mine with a 6x6 piece of cardstock as the base, so each section is a 2 inch square.

Searching around some of my favorite resources, I found this excellent tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers treat box tutorial for making the box. It looks like the tutorial was posted in 2007, so I'm giving it credit as the original source.

I don't have any photos of the box I made for Gloria, but it is a lovely little box that can be used for many different events. I will take a few step by step photos next time I make one!

until we meet again,

  1. You are soo funny. And, yes I am stalking your new blog! I am sure my box is the 6" one, just like the one you gave me. I took yours apart and measured it! That's how I roll.


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
