Treat Tuesday

If you want to have some SERIOUS fun making a treat box....you have to try this one! Wendy saw this on the SU! website and wanted us to try to make one. It is SO MUCH FUN to make even if the first time making this is tricky. Once you get it, then it is easy to make more. ALL that holds this box together is a strip of sticky strip to form the box. The two ends are PULLED, PUSHED, TWISTED, and SMOOSHED to close. NO adhesive.
Cut a piece of cardstock 6 3/8" x 5 1/2". Score on the 6 3/8" side every 1 1/2" and on the 5 1/2" side 1 1/2" on each side. Then score diagonal and slits. Finally, punch 1/2" circle on the hole. (tip, make your folds first) Then you need to pull, push, twist and smoosh the ends. The ends should hold on it own but you could add ribbon thru the holes to add to the treat twist box.

Looks like too much to make on your own? Would you love to make a bunch of these for a Halloween treats? Let me know and we can have a workshop for you and your friends!If interested, email me at nutmeg1197@aol.com.
Have a magical day!
