Welcome back everyone! Even though Valentine’s Day is not for another month, it’s a great time to start planning out your packaging for treats!
I have a tutorial for these boxes that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
I have signed up to provide a treats for my son’s class this year for their Valentine’s Day party and what better way to dress it up then by using some fun boxes from Lawn Fawn!
I kept the boxes pretty simple in design. When you have to make 25 of them (not counting teachers) you learn to keep things simple. Just because it’s simple doesn’t make it any less cute. For the first two boxes, I used the Tote Bag die. I’ve die cut two panels from Chili Pepper cardstock and two panels from Ballet Slippers cardstock.
It’s easiest to decorate your front and back panels before actually putting the box together. I layered white cardstock, pattern paper from Knit Picky and Really Rainbow paper pack and also Gold Glitter cardstock from the Holiday Sparkle pack.
I also die cut a banner from Everyday Sentiments Banner using white cardstock just to add a little more interest. You could also die cut this from Pixie Dust cardstock if you wanted more sparkle. I add the banner to the middle of my panel but just on one side.
Next, I die cut out this adorable heart from the Candy Hearts die. The backer is from Pixie Dust carstock and the front heart with the sentiment is from Mermaid Cardstock. I adore this color combination! I added my candy heart to the middle of the panel with foam squares.
Once my front panel is decorated, I add scor tape to all my tabs and to the bottom of one of the panels and attach. I’ve learned over the years that scor tape works best when giving treat boxes to small children. Then, just fill with goodies!
I couldn’t resist playing with the Heart Treat Box. It is seriously so adorable. It’s small but it still can hold a few candy hearts, a small piece of chocolate or you can cut up a sheet of stickers and add those in there. I die cut the box from Raspberry cardstock. That’s also a nice bonus is you only need one panel to make one box.
I decorated the sides of the boxes with white cardstock on top of Gold Glitter cardstock. For the top of the box, I used Pixie Dust cardstock and pattern paper with the Candy Hearts die just for fun.
