This is a great project for your Thanksgiving holiday. Make one to give to your hostess if you're a dinner guest, or make several for take home treats if you're hosting Thanksgiving dinner yourself.
- Decorated 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of card stock
- Two eyelets
- Narrow ribbon
- Top Note diecut & Big Shot machine
- Sticky strip
- Designer paper
Starting at the left side, score at 1", 4", 6" and 9".
Starting from the left side, score at 1-1/2" and then at 6-1/2".
Cut out the rectangle along the score lines, leaving the 3" section intact (next to the scissors in the photo.)
At the bottom of the sheet, cut slits on the remaining vertical score lines up to the 1 1/2" horizontal score line.
TIP: Place the designer paper on top of the cardstock when you die-cut the piece and cut both at once.
Fold along the scored line on the lid.
TIP: This is the best time to add the eyelets and the ribbon for the handle, before you actually construct the box.
Remove the red liner and fold the smaller two flaps in, then the longer two flaps.
For the focal piece, I stamped the flower image and overstamped the "Happy Thanksgiving."
I did a bit of piercing and added a dab of Crystal Effects on the flower bloom before punching it out with the wide oval punch. That piece was attached with dimensionals onto the Designer Series paper and then layered on the chocolate chip square.
Just so you know, squares of individually wrapped Ghiradelli chocolates fit perfectly in this box.
Call or email me if you are in the Duluth area of metro Atlanta to make a date to make one of these adorable boxes with me. Make it Christmas themed by changing the colors and the embellishments. Great teacher gifts!
