Technique Tuesday – Treat Boxes with the Tag Topper Punch

Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means – I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! I love using products in more ways than the obvious use. The Tag Topper Punch is for making fabulous tags or bookmarks like these!!! But now I can fabulous little treat boxes too!!!

Isn’t it cute??? And the best part is it was super simple (and quick) to make and we all know that you always need more than one treat box when you are making them!!!!

Supplies Need: Cardstock, Tag Topper Punch (Scallop or Angled), Sticky Strip, and any kind of decoration (Stamps, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, etc)

For my little box (which holds about 8 Hershey Kisses), I started with a piece of cardstock measuring 2″ x 6-1/2″. Then you will score that piece long ways at 2-3/4″ from each end (that will leave an inch between the two score lines). Then you will punch both ends with your Tag Topper Punch and fold on the score lines. Then you will need two 1-1/2″ squares which you will score on two opposite sides 1/4″ in. (Score lines are marked in pen for you to see!)

Now you will add Sticky Strip (best hold for boxes) to the scored tabs on your 1-1/2″ Squares! You will then attach those to the ends of your box!!! Now your box is complete and you can decorate and add goodies! I decorated mine with the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper belly band and stamped my greeting from the Label Love Stamp Set in Crushed Curry and punched it out with the Artisan Label Punch!!! Then I added a little bit of Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon on the top to hold the kisses in!!!

You can make your boxes as big or small (long) as you need but they will always be 2″ wide in order to fit into the punch. With this one I made it with only 1/2″ long to fit the little Hershey Bars (fits 2 perfectly). I also didn’t put sides on this one and instead let my belly band be the sides and what holds it together! So many fun little boxes you can create with this punch!!! I hope you try it out and let me know what you think in the comments below! I love hearing from you all!!!

Happy Punchin’
