Yesterday I went to a lovely tea. It was a fund raiser for a group my BFF is involved with. In addition to tea and lovely treats, there was a terrific a capella group. All in all, a lovely afternoon. Of course, I wanted to make some treats for everyone at the table and created these little boxes. I used the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions catalog.
The box held three Ghirardelli chocolates.
Design Notes for Tea Together Treat Box:
It’s never a bad day when I get to use my Stampin’ Blends markers. The tea cups and flowers were stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink then colored in with the Blends. The Framelits made them easy to cut out. I used some Old Olive card stock to make a belly band around the little container I made.
The box was really easy. Here are the measurements and directions if you’d like to make one.
- Cut card stock to 4 1/2″ x 7 1/2″
- Score along long side at 2″, 2 3/4″, 4 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.
- Score along short side at 3/4″ and 3 1/2″. (3/4″ from each side.)
- Fold on score lines.
- Cut as shown below, red lines indicate cutting.
- If you want to add Designer Paper use two pieces cut 2″ x 3″ and one piece cut 3/4″ x 3″ (Cut slightly smaller if you want a little card stock to show. )
- Adhere Designer paper.
- Use Tear & Tape to hold box together.
- Create a belly band from 1″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock.
- Decorate as you wish.
