Little gift boxes are so fun to give, and even fun to create!  And you don’t need any special equipment to make them easily.  Usually, when I want a little treat box, I just make a 4-6-8 box, fill with candy, and staple the top closed.  (See another version of 2-4-6-8 boxes on this previous blog post.) But for today’s project, I really wanted to create a coordinating lid.

Tranquil Tide Treat Box / Gift Box with lid / Fresh Florals DSP / Colorful Season photopolymer stamp set / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

My base is 2½” squared.  To do this, I started with a 5½” x 11″ piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock. Turned horizontally, I scored at 2½”, 5”, 7½”, and 10”.  Turned vertically, I scored at 2″.  I then folded each side, cut the 2″ bottom sections into flaps, and adhered them all together.  For the top, I did the same, but scored horizontally at 2 ⅝”, 5 ¼”, 7 ⅞”, and 10 ½” and then vertically at 2 ⅝”.

I think it would be fun to have an entire set of these little boxes using the new In Color papers. If you would like to make your own set, I’ve provided you a listing of the products I used.  Just click the thumbnails below to go to my online store fore more information or to place your order.
