Hello! Happy Saturday! Today I am here with a new challenge for Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge! With the Holidays we had a nice break but we are ready today to wow you! We have an amazing sponsor, The Twinery!
Twine is so hot right now in papercrafting! Our challenge this week is to design with some twine! Not hard at all! I have so been enjoying my twine from the Twinery, I can't tell you how easy it is to use! And how easy it is to create with too!
For this challenge I created some Valentine Triangle Treat boxes:
These boxes are so easy to make! I can't remember where I learnt how to make this, nor can I find it online so I thought I would make my own tutorial for it. Please excuse how bad the photos are! :>
Products needed: 4 by 8 inches cardstock or patterned paper (with a 12 by 12 sheet you can make 4)
Heart die (mine is quickutz) or any die that fits, usually the smallest nestie
Baker's pink and red twine by the Twinery
Background stamp (mine is musical and magical by HA) and ink
Cellophane (like leftover packaging, cellophane bags or envelopes)
Buttons if you wish
Stamp background on cardstock and fold in half
Score the middle on each side, 2 inches in. Than score from the middle to the edge, making a triangle on each side.
This is a photo showing where the pencil lines are where the scoring should be. Once this is done take your die and die cut a shape into one of the sides of the triangle. Using double sided tape attach a square of cellophane that covers the hole.
On each side close the box and punch a hole through both layers of cardstock...
Fill the box with candies. I prefer the Hershey kisses to the cinnamon hearts. Taking the twine you tie it to the skewer. Close the box and push the skewer through both sides. The skewer makes it easy to pull the twine through and close the box. Tie the twine to keep the box closed! And there you go!
For the Hershey Kisees one I tied a double bow and added a heart button, for the Cinnamon hearts I tied a regular bow!
Well I hope you join us and play this week! Make sure to check out my fellow DT gals! I hope this tutorial made sense to you also! Let me know what you think of it!
