Nutty Treat Box

I hope you’re all enjoying the lovely fall weather.  I like this so much better than the hot summer.  But, I do miss all the fresh vegetables from the Farmer’s Market.

Today’s project is a fall treat box.  This is another project from this month’s Stamp Club.

Here are the fixin’s:

The box is made using Soft Suede CS and the new Square Pillowbox die from the Holiday Catalog.  Cut two pieces with the die (two are required to make the box, but you can get both from a half shet of CS), run one through the Big Shot using the Woodland embossing folder.

Using soft suede ink, add a few leaves from the Among the Branches stamp set (which can be purchased as a bundle with the pillowbox die, saving 15%).  Use tear and tape to assemble the box.  Wrap linen thread twice around the box and tie with a bow.

Punch a 2″ circle from Very Vanilla CS and stamp with Soft Suede ink and the speckled stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set.

Using the Acorny Thank You bundle, punch an acorn from corrugated paper.  Stamp the acorn top in Cajun Craze, punch, and adhere to the acorn.  Use a dimensional to attach the acorn to the Very Vanilla circle.

Cut a small strip of Very Vanilla, stamp the Grateful for You in Cajun Craze, cut one end in a banner, and adhere on the circle under the acorn.  Use a dimensional to adhere the circle to the box.  I tucked it up under the bow.

I hope you enjoy this project.  If you need any of the supplies to make this project, please visit my Stampin’ Up! store by clicking on the shopping basket in the top right corner.  If you don’t have one, I’d love to be your demonstrator.  And, if you’re in the Fort Knox/Elizabethtown, KY area, I’d love to meet you.

Until next time……..stay inky, my friends!
