Pumpkin Treat Box Tutorial

Welcome Back Crafting Friends!

I've finally finished working on the tutorial for this cute little treat box which features the Scallop Circle Die and Autumn Harvest Die from Stampin' Up!

Click HERE for the list of supplies needed to create the Pumpkin Treat Holder.
Start by creating the box. You will need a piece of Pumpkin Pie  card stock measuring 5 1/2" x 5"

With the 5" edge placed at the top of the score board, score at 2" and at 3". Rotate the card stock so that 5 1/2" edge is now at the top of the scoreboard and score at 1" and 4 1/2".

Using paper snips, cut from the edge of the card stock to the score line.

Turn the card stock over and place sticky strip on the flaps of the card stock as shown in the above photo (I prefer using Sticky Strip because of it's stronger bonding factor).

Assemble your box and adhere the flaps.

Using the Big Shot, cut two Scallop Circles using Stampin' Up!'s Scallop Circle BigZ die.

Emboss each scallop circle using your favorite embossing folder or with the Beautiful Baroque embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

Place the scallop circle on your score board so that the left side of the circle rests against the left edge of the score board. Score and crease the Scallop Circle at 3 1/2". Do this to both Scallop Circles.

Place Sticky Strip on the flap of each circle as shown above.

Adhere the flap of the circle to the bottom of the box. Do this to both sides of your box. Add a little bit of sticky strip to the top edge of your box to adhere your scallop circle.

Your Scallop Circle Treat Holder should now look like this,.

Using your Big Shot, Cut three leaves using Stampin' Up!'s Autumn Harvest BigZ die. After cutting, Emboss the leaves with Stampin' Up!'s Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

Create your handle for your treat holder using ribbon. In this example, I am using a piece of Old Olive Satin Ribbon. Adhere one side of the ribbon to the inside of each scallop circle. I like using Stampin' Up!'s glue dots for the adhesive.

Adhere your leaves to the front of your treat holder using glue dots.

Embellish with Naturals Designer Buttons and Linen Thread and there you have it!
