Sweet Street Bakery Treat Box


Have you seen the Sweet Street by Tina Smith Collection, at Spellbinders?  It's adorable dies, a stamp set, and sprinkles all with a confectionary theme.  I happen to love cute treat packaging, so when Spellbinders offered me a chance to play with these products, I was excited to create something fun.  

I started the project with the Sweet Treat Box Die Set. I cut the treat box out of Rustic Rose Card Stock, and also cut the interior rectangle.  From the scrap piece that was cut to create the window, I die cut a few of the hearts.  I applied some Stick It to the back of a piece of Onyx Card Stock, and die cut the "You are Sweet" sentiment three times, then stacked the sentiments to give it more dimension.  

I used the Sweet Confections Label and Banner Die Set to cut the banner elements.  The label shape, along with the corrugated embossing, were cut from Oatmeal Cookie Card Stock (cut twice - one label shape will go inside of the box).  The fishtail banner shape was cut from Mirror Gold Card Stock.  I assembled the label using liquid adhesive, and then applied a bit of glue to the corners, and added a few Sweet Sprinkles Embellishments.

Finally, to create the box, I cut a panel, of Rustic Rose Card Stockthat was 5.25" x 6.5".  Each side of the panel was scored at 0.25" and 0.75".  Along the short ends of the box, I cut as shown in the graphic below (Please note: the graphic is NOT to scale).  All of the red portions were removed, the blue portions were freed on all but one side (this leaves flaps that close up the corners neatly).  When assembling, adhesive will go on the yellow portions.  

Once I had the initial cuts made, I embossed both the box top I die cut, along with the box body with the Mystic Impressions Embossing Folder.  To emboss the whole box body, I folded down the adhesive panel on one of the short ends of the box.  Then, I applied White Liner to the adhesive panels of the box - making sure it was on the side of the card stock with the embossing rounding up.  I folded along the score lines I created earlier so the box was ready to assemble.  I also adhered a 3.5" x 4.75" piece of Oatmeal Cookie card stock to the bottom inside of the box.  

I used White Liner to adhere a bit of acetate on the back of the window for the box top.  Once that was adhered, I added the second label shape I had cut to the back of the acetate.  Then I lined up the sentiment label on the front side of the box, and adhered it with some foam tape.  

Finally, I added a few cookies inside the box (use a cellophane bag, or wrapped treats, so that there won't be grease spots on your card stock!), which allows the box top to remain "closed" until the recipient opens it to remove the treat.  I removed the white liner, and adhered the box to the box top.  

This wound up being a really cute little package for a few cookies.  The depth of the box can be easily increased to accommodate more dimensional treats.   Be sure to head on over to check out the Sweet Street by Tina Smith Collection, at Spellbinders.
