What a Treat! Wednesday

Today is "What a Treat Wednesday" over on My Creative Time Blog.
We are to make treat bags, boxes and containers of any style we like.  I'm loving this day as I'm all about making gifty items!! 
I have had these little boxes of Mike and Ike candies sitting on my desk with the intention to create something cute with them to give to friends.  Well today was the day and I'm pleased with the results!! Now I have some cute little gifts to hand out to friends at our next luncheon!

My Creative Time Products Used:

Other Products:
Paper: Simple Stories
Ribbon and twine: Maya Roads
Martha Stewart Score Board
EK Success Slot Punch
Ranger Archival Ink ~ Coffee and Black

Here are the steps in making this candy slider treat box:

Cut base paper with 4x6 journal die.
Stamp cut piece with background stamp ~ I used grainy wood.  Then score piece at 1.5", 2",  4 1/8" and  4 5/8".
As you can see background stamp didn't cover the entire piece of paper, but no worries since the flap will be glued and you will not see it. 
Glue flap down to create box. 
Using a slot punch, punch in center top. 
Slide ribbon through both slots and then using candy, push ribbon down into box. Tie on top. 

This technique can be used for all sorts of boxed candies or chocolate bars.  With the holidays coming up, you could make some cute gifts!!
