Treat box - by Åsa

Hi there everyone, Åsa here! Today I thought that we would make a little Treat Box together.

I´ve used:12"x12" patterned paper
Stamp: For my Tweetheart
Disress ink
Adhesive tape
Sewing machine
Spellbinders die

Start to draw and cut out a circle from your patterned paper that is approximately 8½" wide.
Then score it with a bone folder for the dimensions as in the picture below.

Then continue to cut after the red lines, then it should look like this:

Before I glue it together I ink all the edges with Distress ink - Vintage photo.

Then I sew with my sewing machine around the back and the front:

Then I use adhesive tape to stick it together:

Fold in the side flaps and carefully align and stick the front flap on to the side flaps.
The base for the treat box is ready and it should look like this!

I like to take some papperfrills and stuff it into the box. It makes it look a little bit more I think.
I make the paperfrills myself by taking a piece of cardstock and run it true my crimper and then cut it into thin strips.

Then I take all the strips and crunch them in my hand a bit.
Now they are ready to fill the Treat Box.
So - the only thing left is the really fun and easy part - to stick your motif on and decorate it!
Here´s the final result of my Treat Box!

So have lots of fun making your own Treat Box!
