How to Make Your Own DIY Treat Boxes
Every Friday, our little tribe of four celebrates Fun Friday by eating out (although, I must admit that we have been celebrating more of a Fun Summer, if you get my drift).
Anywaaay … last Fun Friday we went to one of our usual haunts, and even though we've been there way too many times for me to be proud to admit, I noticed that they had the most adorable take out/ snack containers, and right there and then, mid-bite of something greasy and yummy, a DIY was born: treat boxes! Wouldn't these little boat-shaped sweeties be awesome to serve snacks and treats? They can be great to store little crafty bits and pieces, too! Let's jump in, yes?
- Silhouette CAMEO
- Silhouette Studio
- CAMEO light hold cutting mat
- Cardstock or Chipboard
Step 1: After opening a new document in Silhouette Studio, I created a rectangle
Step 2: I then used the knife tool to cut all 4 corners off (each corner cut measured 1"x.5")
Step 3: Once I deleted the cut corners, I re-sized my shape, then added the slits and fold lines using the Line and and Line Style tools
Step 4: I loaded my cardstock/mat, and sent to cut using cardstock settings
Step 5: I folded (dashed lines) and glued the ends together to create the completed box
Now, my little treat boxes are ready to be filled with happy yummies!
