Peachy Keen Big Face Treat Containers

Did you know that Peachy Keen has 4" face stamps?  They are FANTASTIC for making quick and cute treat boxes.  Today I will show you how to make the basic treat container box with three different design ideas.  Get creative and try some of the other 4" face stamps to create your own little cutie!

BASIC TREAT BOX TUTORIAL

Step 1
Cut a piece of card stock 9-1/2" x 8-1/4".  On the longer side, score at 1/2", 2", 5", 6-1/2".  On the shorter side, score at 1-1/2", 2", 7".

Step 2
Cut the card stock as indicated in the diagram below.  The gray areas are the areas to be cut out. For a larger view, click on the picture.

Step 3
Apply a strong adhesive like sticky strip along the 1/2" score line on the left and attach to other end to form box.  Glue or tape bottom of box in place.  


Step 4
Pinch the top of box closed.  Add a velcro dot to the box and fold over flap at top to keep closed.  The basic treat box is finished!  Now, embellish your box with a face.
