Create a Treat!

I love a fun way to give a simple treat to a friend.  Treats are the theme for the Saturday challenge at Create at Connie and Mary.  Using any of the new kits in the Spring Occasions Catalog the designers were to come up with a treat holder/container.  I made mine using the  cards from the Boutique Boxes Kit.

Here is what I did:

1.  Take two matching cards from the kit and trim down the non-printed side to be 3/4" wide.

2.  Glue the two 3/4" sides together to form the bottom of the treat holder.  Bring the printed sides together to form a trifold holder.

3.  Take one of the doilies from the Boutique Boxes kit and fold it in half over the top of the cards.

4.  Use the bakers twine from the kit and wrap around the trifold holder four times.  Secure the twine by bringing the ends through a button from the kit and tying a bow.

5.  Decorate the button side with more elements from the kit, a scrap of Crochet Ribbon, Flower Trim, a Ribbon Slide, Basic Rhinestones, and a "thank you" stamped from Itty Bitty Banners and cut from the Bitty Banner Framelits.

6.  Slide in two Ghirardelli chocolate carmel  squares.


  1. Wow...another great idea using those the Box Kit! I can't wait to open mine now!!! LOVE this little favor!

  2. I love how you did this as a wrap for the chocolate!

  3. Oh I'm so glad I came to see that your gorgeous container actually has a flat bottom. Love the vintage feel you have created.

  4. I LOVE all the fine girly details you added to the front - they are perfect together! Great easy gift packaging.
