Quick + Easy Treat Box (From the Archives)

"For You" Treat Box Filled With Wrapped Chocolate Candy

One of my favorite Big Shot Dies, the Box #2 Bigz XL Die, is retiring and I'm taking a walk down memory lane with this adorable project from last year. Creating this box is a snap - just one zip through the Big Shot does it all - the die scores and cuts the box pattern for you! All that's left to do is fold the box into shape and decorate as desired. So EASY!!

Adhesive die-cut accents are used for quick embellishments

Wondering about the embellishments? This was a fun choice from the 2011 Sale-a-bration product offering that was also a personal favorite.

 **Bargain Alert!!**

I just came from the online clearance rack where I spotted the Ice Cream Parlor Suite of accessories on sale now.

For quick and easy treats for the box, simply wrap a few chocolate nugget candy bars with strips of Designer Series Paper and add a die-cut flower accent. Super easy to do and people LOVE these little decorated treats.

Gift Set - Embellished treat box, wrapped candy, and 3x3 mini card

I also created a coordinating 3x3 mini card using the same paper and die-cuts. This adorable little ensemble makes a great gift for a friend, co-worker, teacher, or neighbor.
