Are You Getting These?

These are special treat boxes that were made for a special group of Bowlers. My DH has been bowling for 35+ years (not with the same group). They will receive these this week. In order for them to be carefully transported without losing any of the candy, the treat boxes are in cello bags - tied with Linen cord.

Here are the treat boxes before they were put in plastic bags. I used some left-over "eye" stickers I had lying around - my goal was to use what I had! And, the CS for the treat boxes are those retired in colors: Eggplant Envy, Kiwi Kiss, and Tangerine Tango - gotta use that up! Candy is filled on both sides of the boxes which also contains SU Black CS shreds made by cutting up scraps into 1/8" strips.

Here are close-ups of a couple of the boxes: Note: the scrapbook paper used to decorate the outside of the tote is something I had lying around (yay -use it up!) - Source unknown.

A treat box was posted on 10/9/09 Scary Fun Treat Tote showing how to make the shreds used for this tote. Here is how to make the tote. (2) Big Shot #2 pieces are needed. Note: To show how to make this tote, generic CS is used.

Cut the side flaps off of each box:

Using sticky tape, adhere both boxes together:

Using a Large Oval Punch, position punch between both lids of the box as shown:

Finished tote should look like this:

  • Stamps: Batty for You
  • CS: Eggplant Envy (retired), Tangerine Tango (retired), Kiwi Kiss (retired), Whisper White, Black
  • Ink: Black
  • Accys: Big Shot Box #2 Die, Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Wide oval Punch, Tangerine Tango Striped Ribbon (retired), Black Multi color ribbon (unknown source), Eye Stickers (unknown source), Sticky Tape, Linen Thread, 1/8" Hand held Punch (retired), Cello Bag (unknown)

Thank you for stopping by today...............Hugs...........

Hi Patti, found your blog today and bookmarked it for return visits. When I saw this post, I immediately thought of Becky Roberts's Milk Carton project in miniature form - sure would be cute, don't you think??
