Project of the Week - Repeat Impressions Stamps

Good morning!

I'm the Monday morning hostess at The House that Stamps Built. It's my turn to share a 'Project of the Week' with all of you.  Today, I chose to share a tutorial for the easiest EVER treat box.

For this tutorial, I'm using this Repeat Impressions stamp:

Cut a piece of card stock to 6.5" x 6.5".
Score at 2" on each side.

This is what your 'box' will look like:

Cut off the 4 corners and burnish your score lines nice and crisp.

Take a small hole punch and punch each side of each flap.
Now it looks like this.

Burnish your fold lines one more time for grins...

Take some Baker's Twine or gold cording, and tie up your corners.

Decorate as desired.

Fill boxes with something delightful!
That's it - you're done!

Truly the easiest box ever, right?

On the dotted box, there were no added panels, green card stock was used for matting, and Baker's Twine was used for the ties.

On the striped box, I cut and adhered four panels that were 2.25" x 1.75", gold metallic card stock was used for matting, and Gold cording for the ties.

We hope that you will give this a try! 
Come back and let us know if you do - we'd love to see your finished projects!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Patti J.
