Who doesn’t love a fun treat box, or in this case, three Gingerbread treat boxes? What makes them even better? No Glue!! Yup, you heard it right, these three fun-sized treat boxes are made with cardstock with no adhesive to hold them together. That means you can store them flat until you’re ready to give saving you space in your already crowded craft area.
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s project features candy and treats, so prepare your sweet tooth for some wonderful inspiration. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I found a post from a fellow demonstrator SallyStampers.com on Pinterest when I was browsing to find a fun treat box to make for today’s post. i liked the idea of not having to use any glue to hold it together. At the bottom of this post you’ll find a video tutorial from Sally on how she made her box. I’ve modified it a bit and will go into detail on the differences below.
Sally created a one-size cube box (2″ x 2″ x 2″) My vision was for a three-tiered cube stack so I modified the measurements to make one larger than 2″ and one smaller. All the steps are listed below.
Step by step Gingerbread No Glue Box
- Largest 2-1/2″ box – Cinnamon cider cardstock 11 x 7-1/2. Score on short side at 2-1/2, and 5. Score on long side at 2-1/2, 5, 7-1/2, and 10
- Medium 2″ box – Old Olive cardstock 8-1/2 x 6. Score on short side at 2 and 4. Score on long side at 2, 4, 6 and 8
- Small 1-1/2″ box – Real Red cardstock 6-1/2 x 4-1/2. Score on short side at 1-1/2 and 3. Score on long side at 1-1/2, 3, 4-1/2 and 6
- Follow the directions in the video for cutting and trimming the cardstock. I did not use the rounded corner method on my boxes. I simply cut a diagonal on the inside corner of the flap closes to the top. It still provided a decorative edge to the side of the box without all the scoring and fussing.
- Cut 6 pieces of coordinating Designer Series paper for each box. Large box uses 2-3/8 x 2-3/8. Medium box uses 1-7/8 x 1-7/8. Small box uses 1-3/8 x 1-3/8. Adhere the pieces to the top, bottom front, and two sides with the diagonal trim.
- Fold box and tuck in the flap. The box should hold in place but you can always add a few glue dots to the sides if you want.
- Use stickers from the Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories & More card pack to decorate the boxes. Tie all three together using Sheer Real Red Ribbon with a bow at the top. Use glue dots between the boxes to hold them together.
