Top Note Holiday Treat Boxes

Happy day after Thanksgiving my Blog friends!  Today I'm excited to share a cute holiday treat box project with you. 

I saw this adorable treat box on Splitcoast Stampers and just had to make one of my own.  The only problem was that I neither have the Big Shot Pro nor the dress die for the treat container.  So I decided to find a way to make this container using supplies that I already had.  I found a tutorial for the gift box on SCS and modified it a bit to make the body (details included below).  Then I just pieced together the rest of the reindeer using the Top Note Die, tape and some punches.  

I thought this little guy needed a friend so I made a penguin to go along with him!  Here is the penguin....






I'm also including this project in this week's Gearing Up for Christmas Challenge at Bugaboo Stamps.  Thanks for looking at my project and have a Wonderful Day!

How to make the TREAT BOX:

Supplies:  1 Sheet Close to Cocoa Paper, Paper Cutter, Bone Folder, Scissors, Sticky Tape


1.  Cut your paper to 6 x 11
2.  Score your paper landscape at 2", 5", 7", 10"
3.  Score your paper Horizontally at 1 1/2"
4.  Cut the small tabs to the horizontal score line
5.  Fold all the score lines
6.  Tape & Assemble
7.  Pinch the top corners of the box together to create a fold

Supplies List:
2 Large Ovals Close to Cocoa, 2 1/4" Circles White, 3 1" Round Circles - 2 Black & 1 Red, 1 Round Tab Extra Large - Basic Black, 2 Word Window Punches - Chocolate Chip, 1 Top Note Die Close to Cocoa.

Here's what it will look like:
