Tiny Milk Carton Easter Treat Boxes

Hi guys! So, as I have mentioned I recently became a Stampin’ Up demonstrator and a few weeks ago I booked my first party! It’s been really fun getting to learn the ropes not to mention sharing some of my favourite products with my friends and family! I have been card making and scrapbooking for many years, and I have to say, Stampin’ Up makes things so easy! The best part is how nicely everything coordinates. If you are a crafter then you know how much of a pain it can be to try and match up your colours and materials!

My friend made up these tiny milk carton Easter treat boxes as favours for the guests of our first Stampin’ Up party. We got the idea from Sam over at Pootles, but we put a bit of our own spin on them.

The finished dimensions are 1 3/8 cubed or 3.5 cm and here’s how you can get started:

– Cardstock – 4-1/8 x 6″ (10.5 x 15cm)
– Score on the LONG side at 1-3/8, 2-3/4, 4-1/8, 5-1/2″ (3.5, 7, 10.5, 14cm)
– Score on the SHORT side at 1-3/8, 2-3/4, 3-5/8″ (3.5, 7, 9cm)

Easter Treat Boxes

Today I’m bringing you some Easter treat boxes that I’ve been working on. I’ve been on such a kick with boxes lately– big ones, small ones and all different shapes so you’ll see lots of variation. I love getting different ideas from all around the blogging world so today I’m going to share a few of my favourites.

Easter Treat BoxThis first Easter treat box was made by the envelope punch board by Stampin’ Up which is a little different than other boxes that I have made. This is a design by Pootles called the Upsized Open Basket which as always has a great video tutorial! The best part of this easter treat box is that it can be made with just an 8x 8″ piece of cardstock. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish with just one piece of paper!

This second Easter treat box is another lovely design by Pootles. This was originally a monogram box but I decided to change it up a bit and stamp it with an Easter stamp.

The monogram boxes are perfect favours for a party if you want to make sure everyone gets their own personalized box. I have been working on a variety of Easter treat boxes recently so I’ll have a little gift for all my friends and family. Since I am still just a beginner I thought it would be more fun to make lots of different ones rather than several of the same style.

If you are interested in seeing how the monogram boxes look, here’s a photo from Pootles blog. Aren’t these just sweet? I love these for a little birthday gift or for party favours! But as you can see, you can definitely get creative with how you dress them up, the box itself is definitely versatile, which is great!

Card & Gift Box Set

Hello friends, today I’m sharing a trio that I have put together with inspiration from many different blogs and tutorials. I recently ordered some Stampin’ Up products from the seasonal catalogue and received some free items from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

Here’s a list of the free items I use in these projects:

– Simply Wonderful Stamp Set
– Lotus Blossom Stamp Set
– Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper

Later, I came across this card on My Papercraft Journey which uses all the free items I received so I decided to make my own version. If you stop by her blog you can see many different versions of this card. After I finished up with the card I found a tutorial for the small Tone on Tone Lidded Favour Box created by Pootles. I still had lots of left over materials so I had to try it and I’m glad I did, because it turned out to be a really fun box to make!

Card & Gift Box Set The last part of this trio is the long slender box that would be perfect for holding a small gift or three markers. You can watch Sunn Stampin’s video tutorial here!

Although, these gift boxes and cards weren’t exactly a set, I think they go great together and would make a perfect gift or at least cute desk decorations to hold your markers/pens. I hope you enjoy these tutorials as much as I have!

Sale-A-Bration is a great way to get free products along with your regular orders, and who doesn’t love free gifts?!
