Sweet treat boxes
Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 01 Feb, 2018
Perfect for any occasion, these colourful little containers are super-easy to make and lovely to receive!
1. Remove the sleeves from Papermania Bare Basics Large Matchboxes and set the insides aside. Carefully peel the tabs from each sleeve apart and open out completely flat. Take sheets of pink, blue and red paper from the Papermania A4 Coloured Paper Pack and place one of the flattened sleeves on the back of one. Draw around the shape and carefully cut out with a paper trimmer or a sharp pair of scissors (if you trust yourself to cut straight!). Repeat with the other sheets of paper.
2. Arrange the Xcut Nesting Hearts Mini Dies on top of the pink paper sleeve. Hold in place with little strips of craft tape to ensure that they don’t move while you’re die cutting. Repeat with the Xcut Flamingo Mini Die on the blue sleeve and the Xcut I Love You Mini Sentiment die on the red paper sleeve. Measure and cut out pieces of red, blue, yellow and white paper and stick behind the die-cut shapes. Stick these panels over the sleeves and reconstruct them to the shape they were before. Glue in place and replace the boxes back inside.
