Treat Box

PapertakeWeekly has "anything goes".
I got the idea for the box from Arielle Gordon. I tweaked her dimensions a little though as I couldn't get my top & bottom to fit the acetate.

If you want to have a go:

2 pieces of double sided patterned paper 4" square

Piece acetate 3 1/2" x 9"

12" ribbon

- Score the patterned paper on each side at 7/8" then fold & glue to make the box top and bottom

- Score the acetate (landscape ways) at 2 2/8, 4 4/8, 6 6/8, 9

- Use extra strong double sided tape to glue the overlap edge of acetate

- Glue the acetate inside the patterned paper bottom

- Punch a hole on 2 opposite sides of the paper top

- Slide the top onto the acetate, mark the location of the holes on the acetate with permanent marker

- Punch the holes in the acetate

- Thread the ribbon through the top & acetate & knot inside the acetate so the ribbon stays put.

And le voila (as the French say)


Happy Wednesday - halfway through the week now :)
