Top Tip Tuesday Treat Box

Hello and welcome here! It's Tuesday again, and that means it's time for a Top Tip Tuesday Challenge.  This time the Challenge is to make a project that is Good With Food, so any type of container,  box or basket, or if you've made homemade jam you can make it pretty with your scrapbooking supplies.  Elaine is sharing a Tutorial on Chocolate Bar Wrappers.

Challenge - Good With Food
Tutorial - Chocolate Bar Wrapper by Elaine

Size: 3" Square,  approx. 5" tall
First off, I cannot take credit for this cute little box.  I found the Box with 2 Drawers post on Mariannes papirverden, the only down side was that I couldn't find instructions for it, so I figured out the measurements and will post them for you below.

I figured it was the cutest little box to send treats in! (It will also hold 4 tealight candles like Mariannes box does.)

 For a chance at the following prizes, be sure to link your creation to the Good With Food Challenge  at Top Tip Tuesday, you can enter up to 3 times!! For a chance at an extra prize leave a tip on your blog and be sure to leave 'tip' after your name in Mr. Linky.
Don't forget the challenge runs for 2 weeks


Crimson Clouds - 3 packs of die cuts

Shape EZ - 2 Shape EZ templates of your choice

The Crafty Pad - 2 Digi Images

Here's a view with the drawers closed, I didn't have any fancy drawer pulls, so I improvised by using grosgrain ribbon (hole punch 2 holes, knot ribbon on the inside of the drawer.

I made a little pocket for a tag, so that you had somewhere to put your greetings.

Since Christmas is coming up, I decided to make a Christmas-y box, I used Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettia's on the sides, and some Crystal Ice Stickles.

Recipe:  PP-My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Saffron "Free Spirit" Daisy, Indie Chic Saffron "Create" Lattice & American Craft Mulberry Glitter Paper, Cream CS, Spellbinders-Layered Poinsettia & Labels 20, Martha Stewart Cherish Border Punch, Cream Pearls (coloured with Copic Y17), Pink Organza Ribbon, Cream Grosgrain Ribbon, Hole Punch, Crystal Ice Stickles.

2 Drawer Box or Treat Box Measurements


I didn't think about taking pictures as I made this, so I will only be able to give you written instructions, sorry about that.  
  • Cut out 2 of each of the pieces, scoring where indicated.
  • Assemble Drawers, with the tabs inside
  • Assemble Drawer Wrapper, the 1 1/16" end sections will overlap each other (you'll 'sandwich' your adhesive here)
  • Stack the 2 Wrappers adhere together, insert Drawers into Wrappers
  • If you would like a fancy edge along the top of your box be sure to cut where indicated in photo.
  • To assemble the Container pieces, overlap at the 3 1/16" sections (this will attach to the bottom of your Drawers). See photo below
  • You will 'wrap' the Container pieces up around the Drawers.
  • Decorate as desired!
