Our Winter Product Release has been full of some fun new products and we hope the projects from the team have inspired you!  Today, we have one last project to share before you start shopping later tonight.


I couldn’t help to create a fun treat box with the SugarCut – Popcorn Treat Box and Chunky Monkey stamp set.


First, creating this box is really a breeze.  You only need to cut 2 of the main shape, apply adhesive to the long tabs, and stick them together.  The bottom of the box is designed so that it can be closed by simply slipping the flaps together – no gluing required – and it can be folded flat for storage!  Next I heat embossed the stripes in white with the Striped Background.


I colored the images with Copic markers and then used the coordinating SugarCut dies to cut them out.  I stamped my sentiment onto the stitched circle die that is part of the Popcorn Treat Box die set.  I filled my box with some shredded crinkle paper and banana flavored Runt candies.
