1.  Cut out your Mini Treat Bag from So Saffron card stock cut at 6″ x 11″.  Fold all tabs.  You can either stamp now or later.  I wish I would have stamped after step 3 when the Treat Bag was assembled and the Belly Band was on, OR that I would have stamped over the fold lines.
2.  Assemble by attaching the back flap to the front with adhesive.  Then connect the center back with adhesive.  Last fold up the bottom flap and attach with adhesive.
3.  Cut your Cajun Craze Belly Band at 1-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Center in the front and fold both sides back.  Attach the back sides together with adhesive.  Stamp now if desired.
4.  Use Tombow to attach your “Thanks” to the Belly Band.
5.  Stamp “Grateful for you” in Cajun Craze ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Punch out with the Label Bracket Punch.  Punch a 1/8″ hole at the top and thread your Baker’s Twine through the hole, around the Belly Band, and then back through the hole.  Tie your bow.  Adjust the position of the Baker’s Twine and Label Bracket tag.
6.  Add some goodies or a fun little gift and give to someone special.

Happy Gift Giving!

1.  Cut your card stock for the smallest box into 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Stack and cut out two layers at a time.  You will need four Envelope Liners for each box.
2.  For each Envelope Liner:
~Score one side and cut off the other side.  Just make sure you do these the same for EACH Envelope Liner.
~Score 3/8″ along the bottom of each Envelope Liner.  Cut out the little square.
~Put adhesive on the scored side tab.
3.  Measure between the cut line and the score line to determine how big to cut your square box bottom.  Put Tear & Tape around the inside edges of your box bottom.
4.  You can stamp each box side individually or after you have attached them together and they are still laying flat.  Stamp the inside flaps if desired.
5.  After the sides are attached and flat, score along the flaps so they will fold down easily.  Use the groove on your paper trimmer or Simply Scored Board to help you get your score line straight.
6.  Form the box by attaching the last side tab to the side as shown in the video.
7.  Fold all bottom tabs and attach to the box bottom squaring up all sides.
8.  Either fold the top flaps as shown OR you can fold them down onto the side of the box and attach each flap to the box side with a Dimensional.

Happy Box Making!
