Make A St. Patrick's Day Treat Box
March 15, 2021
With St. Patrick's Day coming up, it's a good time for an idea for this fun little treat box.
This is a simple one and a good size for some fun candy treats or even a gift card! Going through my supplies, I found some stamp sets and dies that would be just right to wish someone "top of the day" on the 17th.
There are many shades of green in this Stampin' Up! color realm but this spruce matched my treats, Andes Mints, so that was the deciding factor.
Here's the how-to video so that you can put one of these together quickly.
- Cut the Shaded Spruce 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock  to 3 x 6.
- Use your Simply Scored  to score on the long side at 2, 2-3/4, 4-3/4, and 5-1/2.
- Turn and score at 3/4 to form the box bottom.
- You will need some scrap pieces of Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Cardstock  and Brass Foil Sheets  (depending on the style you are making.)
- The Rainbow Glimmer Paper  makes a pretty four-leaf clover. You will just need a small piece.
I think this version with the sentiment from the game on stamp set is just right for my better-half! Those hearts from the kanga dies make a cute shamrock, don't you think?
St. Patrick's Day was always a fun day for me growing up. I was eager to attend my school that day to see all the wearing of the green. Making these little treat boxes and decorations each year brings some of those fun memories to mind.
Here's a look back at some of the fun projects for St. Patrick's Day... a Leprechaun Hat Treat Holder and a St. Patrick's Day Banner.
Below are the supplies used for the two St. Patrick's Day treat boxes seen in today's video. If you are needing any card-making or paper crafting supplies, I would be honored to serve you!
Hope you have been inspired to try this paper crafting project so now that you've seen the video, give it a try! Have some fun on St. Patrick's Day with these treat boxes that you can create yourself and until next time, let your light shine!
