Party Craft Tutorial - Treat Boxes

In this new series of posts we are excited to reveal our first party tutorial.  Expertly written and photographed by Yvonne Hunt, one of our newly appointed design team members.  Yvonne takes you through the steps to make your very own treat box, ideal for movie nights or how about Halloween!


What you need:
* Strong thick card
* Scissors        
* Guillotine (optional- but would make cutting a lot easier)
* Scor pal (again optional but you will get lovely clean scoring lines)
* Double sided tape
* Large circle punch
* Decorating papers


Firstly cut two strips measuring 12” x 5”.
Along the 12” side score (to make folding lines) at 4”.
Use a circle punch to punch out the handles.
  

Next cut out two strips measuring 14” x 3 ½”.
Along the long side score at 1”. Along the short side score at ½”, 4 ½”, 9 ½” and at 13 ½”.
 

Along the long side make cuts up to the scoring mark.
Fold along the scoring lines and stick double sided tape along the edges and
  


so you end up with two boxes………….


  that need to be taped together. Put lots of double sided tape on the back of one box and
stick the two together like this
 

 I downloaded some digital papers off of the internet and printed them onto photo paper.


 And here it is the finished box. Now we just need some goodies to go into it:

 A drink, sweets, cupcake, cookies and other Halloween related goodies


 A Halloween treat box


   or maybe a girlie pampering box 


or a movie night treat box complete with popcorn. The possibilities are endless: farm animal theme, princess theme etc. These boxes are so easy to make and kids love them,


As well as being a very talented crafter Yvonne also runs her own cake design company which can be found here http://www.utterlycharmingcakes.co.uk/

We hope you like our tutorial we would love your feedback

Lots of love from
