Be Mine Easy Treat Container

Well hello, it is time for another 3D Wednesday over at My Creative Time. Today we are all making boxes or containers to share. I made a little treat container using some of Emma's existing dies. It was super easy and I think it turned out pretty cute too.

I got this basic idea from a treat that my Mother in law gave to my kids last year. I made a Saint Patrick's Day version of the treat container using my Gypsy last year. You can see that one by clicking HERE. Well when this assignment came up I started brainstorming and remembered that cute treat from last year and thought that Emma's 3x3 Fancy Tri-fold Card Die would work perfectly for this. It absolutely did.


 All I had to do was figure out the perfect places to score it at and the rest is a piece of cake. If you cut out the 3x3 Fancy Tri-fold Card Die all you have to do is place it on a score board straight edge in the corner and score it at 2.75", 3.5" and 6.25".

I wanted a transparent little window so I used the heart die from the 100% Sweetness stamp set to create my window. I filled a 3" wide clear bag with M&Ms and stapled the bag to the top.





Finishing this off was a breeze using the Teeny Tags Layer Dies and a sentiment from the Teeny Tag Greetings Stamp set along with a little bit of hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

I hope you enjoyed this simple and fun little project. Make sure you stop by Emma's Blog to see what fun boxes and containers everyone else came up with. Hugs- Glora
