INSTRUCTIONS:
Fold and put together your box.
1.  Make the Tag Parts.
Circle Tag and Merry Christmas Banner
~Cut out the Cherry Cobbler using the Quilt Builder Framelits.  You will need the two pieces to get the center “stitched” part  and the outside Framelit so it will cut out the shape.
~Choose the Scallop Circle Framelit that your Cherry Cobbler piece will fit on.  Cut it out from Whisper White cardstock.  Put it in the Quilt Top Embossing Folder and run through your Big Shot.
~Attach the Cherry Cobbler Quilt Shape to the Scallop Whisper White Circle with either Stampin’ Dimensionals or Tombow Glue.
Banner Tag
~Stamp Merry Christmas on Whisper White cardstock with Garden Green ink.  Cut out using the Banner Framelit.
~Cut out a Garden Green Banner using the same Framelit.  You will use just the outside Frame part.  Check the underside of your Framelit as this part usually gets stuck.
~IF you are leaving the box Clear OR using the Paper Inside the Box option-Glue your Tag on Now.  Put a large stamp block on top to apply pressure so the glue will stick.  You can also use either Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse to hold it onto the outside of the Acetate Box.
2.  Optional: Paper inside the box.
~Choose 2 sheets of matching 6” x 6” DSP.
~Cut ½” off the top of both pieces.  Attach these to the inside top and bottom flaps of your box with Glue Dots.  Trim off the excess.
~Cut both pieces to 5-1/4” wide  by 5-11/16” high (just less than 5-3/4”)
~Score both piece along the 5-1/4” side at ½”, 1”.  The 1/2″ piece at the edge is the side tab.  The piece between the 1/2″ and 1″ score lines is the side of the box.
~Glue each ½” side tab to the straight edge of the other piece.  The inside part of your box is finished.
~Glue your Circle Tag and Banner Tag to the outside of the box.  I always put a large Stamp block on top to hold them in place for a bit.
3.  Optional: Paper outside the box.
~Choose 2 sheets of 6” x 6” DSP.  This will be easier if you choose a pattern that has no specific up and down pattern.
~Cut ½” off one side of both sheets. Then cut into ½” x 4-1/2” strips.
~Cut both sheets at 5-1/2” wide (you just did this cut) x 5-3/4” high.
~Glue one sheet to the front and side of the box starting at either the left or right front edge, the wrap around the side finger pinching along the fold.  Trim excess.  Repeat with other sheet.  Trim off the excess at the sides.
~Glue your Circle Tag and Banner Tag on Front of Box.

Fall Treat Box

This fun textured Fall Treat Box is quick and easy to make for those last-minute treat giving occasions.

This Video is 8 minutes and 45 seconds long.

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Gourd Goodness  Photopolymer #144785
Inks:  Crushed Curry
Tangerine Tango
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Pumpkin Pie
Big Shot:  Seaside Embossing Folder #141481
Punch:  Starburst #143717
Other:  Calyspo Cora #l 1/8″ Ribbon #144173
Tear & Tape Adhesive
Stampin’ Trimmer with scoring blade or Stampin’ Score with Stylus

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Thick Whisper White card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score down the 8-1/2″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″.  Score the 5-1/2″ side at 2″.  Cut up the 5-1/2″ side to the 2″ score line.  Cut out the 1/2″ rectangle flap.
2.  Place 3 box sections in the embossing folder.  Fold the bottom flaps under the embossing folder (so they will stay flat).  Run through your Big Shot.  Now line up the last box section in the embossing folder, folding the bottom flaps down again.  Finger crease all the score lines trying not to flatten your embossing.
3.  Flatten the embossing on the 1/2″ side flap.  Lay the outside side up and put Tear & Tape on the side flap.
4.  Choose which side will be the Front.  Turn the box over so the inside side is facing up.  Put Tear & Tape alon the fold and edge of the front flap and the side flaps.  The back flap does not need tape.
5.  Remove the tape backing from the side tab.  Lay down and attach to the opposite edge as shown in the video.  Now remove the tape backing from the bottom flaps.  Fold in the back flap, then the side flaps, then the front flap.  Put your Bone Folder inside the box and rub so the Tape sticks well to all the bottom flaps.
6.  Stamp the leaf on Whisper White.  Use Crushed Curry for the more solid stamp, and Pumpkin Pie ink for the lined stamp.  Fussy cut the leaf out.  Punch a Starburst from Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Attach leaf.  Attach Punch to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
7.  Tie your ribbon around the box using Glue Dots at the corners and/or under the bow if necessary to hold it in place.
8.  Put in your treats or gift and bring a smile to someone today!

Stamps:  *Ready to Pop Photopolymer #141513
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry
Card Stock:  Sweet Sugarplum

I used some Gold Baker’s Twine from the Holiday Catalog.  Choose what you want.
Adhesives:  Tear & Tape
Glue Dots
SNAIL

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut out two of the Popcorn Box Thinlits with your Big Shot from Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Use the Scallop Edgelit included to cut the top part of your box pieces so the top of your box will be scalloped.  Also cut out a small tag from Sweet Sugarplum card stock.
2.  Fold all the score lines on the box pieces.  Stamp in Rich Razzleberry ink if desired.
3.  Put Tear & Tape on the
~side tabs.  Attach the two Box pieces together at the side tabs.  Decide which part of the box will be the front.  The bottom flap attached to the front will be attached last.
~Bottom Side Flaps: Along the score lines and edges on the outside of the box
~Bottom Back Flap needs no adhesive added.
~Bottom Front Flap:  Along the edge on the inside of the box.
4.  Now fold in the Bottom Flaps in this order:  sides, back, front.  Yea! You have finished your Box! Now to decorate it.
5.  Cut about 20″ of ribbon.  This should give you enough to go around the box and make a nice size bow.  Fold the ribbon in half and put SNAIL adhesive directly on the ribbon on the 4″ or so on each side of the ribbon.  Now attach the ribbon to the box starting with the center of the ribbon on the back center of your box.  Place the ribbon gently in place in case you need to readjust it.  Make sure the adhesive is on the ribbon as it touches the box corners in the front.  Now tie your bow.
6.  Stamp your tag in Rich Razzleberry ink.  I also sponged the edges in the Rich Razzleberry ink.  Punch a hole in the tag if desired or just attach it under the ribbon with a couple of glue dots.  If you punched a hole, thread the Baker’s Twine through the hole and tie it around the knot in your bow.
7.  Fill with treats or a small gift.

Enjoy surprising your family and friends with treats in Popcorn boxes.  If the box is for a guy, just leave off the ribbon.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions.
1.  Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Crumb Cake card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same.
~You can stamp the Hardwood image in Chocolate Chip ink either before you cut out your Baker’s Box pieces or after you have cut it out.  I did it after, but it would probably be easier if you stamped before you cut them out.
~Before. Ink up your Hardwood stamp and lay Rubber side up.  Lay your card stock on top of the inked stamp.  Use a Clear Stamp Block and rub it over all the card stock to transfer the ink.  Remove card stock.  Repeat with the second piece.
~After:  Fold the side score lines and do one side at a time.  Lay one folded side of your cut Baker’s Box piece on top of the inked stamp, as above and rub with a Clear Stamp Block.  Repeat for the other side and the other cut piece.
2. Add your Tear & Tape to the side tabs and the bottom flaps.
~~Side Flaps (smaller):  With the outside facing up, put Tear & Tape on the outside edge and the bottom on both pieces.
~~Front and Back Flaps (larger with V in the center. I leave this part flat):
~~~Front: Put Tear & Tape on the INSIDE of both sides of the V.
~~~Back:  Put Tear & Tape on the OUTSIDE of both sides of the V.
3. Cut:
~Cut two Pine Cones from Chocolate Chip card stock.  Angle the two Pine Cones together the way you want and attach them together with Glue Dots.  Tie a bow with the Gold Baker’s Twine.
~Cut 2 small Pine Branches and 1 Medium Pine Branch from Garden Green card stock.
4.  Assemble your Box:  Attach the side Tabs.  Now for the bottom flaps:  sides first, then the Back Flap, and the Front Flap is last.
5.  Decorate:
~Choose the front of your Box.  Attach the Medium Pine Branch about 1″ above the center score line on the box front with a Glue Dot.  Attach the other two Pine Branches on top of the first one with Glue Dots.  Attach the Pine Cones with 2-3 Glue Dots on top of where the Pine Branches meet.
~Tie closed with Gold Ribbon.
