Little Treat Box with a matching Card Idea

Here's a great idea for the essential workers, your co-workers or neighbors during the holidays that you can get a head start on now. Who wouldn't love to be remembered with a holiday card and a couple pieces of Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares in a cute treat holder? This is also a great idea as a way to use up any holiday 12 x 12 sheets or holiday ribbons that you may have in your stash.

I cased (Copy and Share Everything) the card idea from Sandra's Stamp & Craft Studio.


Stampin' Up! now has available the Little Treat Box Dies as part of their August-December 2020 Mini Catalog collection.  They are so easy to use and run through your die cutting machine quickly. I used my Big Shot and was able to get two boxes per 6" x 12" piece of Designer Series Paper. (See photo below.) They assembly very easily, but I did add a small piece of scotch tape on the inside where the tab goes into the slot on each side of the little box.
