This week at Crazy 4 Challenges
, our wonderfully gifted hostess, Joanne
, has challenged us to create a Treat Container!!
What a great challenge for this time of year! I decided to go with a less conventional kind of treat for my project as this gift was going to a fellow Stamper/Scrapper! I wanted to try and make it unique as Monique of For The Love Of Paper
has done some pretty amazing projects herself!!
Here is the picture of the final project! Scroll down and you will find a brief tutorial on how to make these boxes WITH the insert to hold the ball inside.
Here is the smaller box and ornament of the two. I filled the ornament with brads, buttons, ribbons, bows etc...basically anything that would fit in the opening!! I used a red, green, and gold theme for this one and then covered it with SU! Rub-Ons so that when she takes the embellies out, she still has a nice ornament to hang on her tree.
This is a larger ornament filled with silver, white and blue embellies, also covered with rub-ons!
Here are the measurements to create the boxes for a 2.24" diameter ornament and a 3.15" diameter ornament (I got them from Walmart):
*small* Score a 6-3/4" square at 2" on all sides. Trim four corner pieces and fold into box.
*large* Use 9-3/4 " square (score at 3" on all sides)
*small* Score a 4-7/8" square at 1" on all sides. trim corners and fold into lid.
*large* Use 5-7/8" square
Ball Holder Insert
*small* Score a 3-5/8" square at 1/2" on all sides, cut off each corner and fold down. Cut a circle in the center to the size of your ornament.
*large* Use 4-5/8" square
I think that pretty much covers it but feel free to ask questions if you have any!
Thank you so much for stoppin' by for a visit!
Happy Holidays to All!
