Thanksgiving Keepsake Box Treat Holder
Once again used the Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Box die for this table top treat holder. This time I wanted to be able to use a printed card stock on the front and back of the box with the sides still being solid card stock.
To begin with here are the two pieces I cut out using this die for the box itself:
Here are the last pieces of the 6x6 printed card stock I had to use on this box:
Did not want to waste the printed card stock so I cut out two pieces for the box front and back being careful to position the die near the edge of the paper:
Basically only needed to cut out the front and back curved pieces. Used scissors to snip off the piece on the bottom left of these pieces:
Using TomBow glue I put the printed card stock onto the front and back box pieces and set it aside to dry:
Once these pieces were dried I used scissors to cut off the white piece at the bottom of the holder:
If you have this die then you know it is suggested that you run your four sides to your box over a bone folder so the card stock will bend into the curvy shape and not show crease lines. Once all my pieces were run over the bone folder then I put the box together using tear tape. (Be sure your glued pieces have totally dried when you do this step).
Painted an unpainted clothespin for the top of the holder using rust craft ink. While that was drying I punched out two different leaves and sponged the edges of those with Old Olive ink. Using the Stampin Up stamp set Gobble, Gobble I stamped "give thanks" onto cream card stock using rust ink. Cut that out using the Stampin Up Classic Label punch. Layered the leaves using TomBow glue and put the leaves onto the clothespin using red sticky tape. Tied a double bow using twine and added a brown crystal to the center of that:
This treat holder will look nice on a holiday table as a place marker as the print is on the front and the back of the holder so it looks more finished:
These little box treat holders go together quickly and are free standing so they will make good place markers at a table. Instead of a greeting print up guest names on the computer, printing them out onto card stock, and punch out the names and put that on the top of each treat holder. TFL and YOLO
