Made In Minutes with My Creative Time

Hello, my crafty friends and welcome back to another "Made In Minutes"!!  I honestly need to start timing myself for these posts to prove how quickly some of these projects come together!

My Creative Time (Emma) is known for all their amazing packaging and treat holder dies, so I decided to use one for my project today.  Before starting on Emma's Design Team, I never made any sort of 3-D project or treat holder. I always found them too intimidating with all the measurements, cutting and scoring.  But all of these dies take all the stress right out of it!!

I used the Mini Gift Box Die.  This is a fairly new die to the shop and as I'm writing this post, it's currently out of stock so I do apologize!! But never fear, they will be back in stock shortly!!

I cut the die out of 80lb white cardstock. It cut, scored and folded beautifully!

There is a cut on each of the corner flaps. These create little tabs that simply fold into each other.

You don't actually need any adhesive for this little box to stay together. I did add a couple strips just so the side flaps would stay up, but again, not necessary.

I measured the area inside the stitched detail lines on all four sides to create some layers with patterned paper.

1.25 inch squares worked perfectly which I added to all sides of the box.

So cute!! As you can see, I cut a small circle using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies and also used the Lower Case Fun Dies to cut out the letter "c" to personalize the box a bit more.

To give you an example of what can fit in these gift boxes, I placed a package of sequins along with a jar of Perfect Pearls.  There is definitely room left over!!

All that's left to do at this point is add my little monogram and tie it up with a piece of ribbon!!

This little box is so stinkin' cute!  

Just think of all the ways you can personalize this box or decorate it for every season!! Or how great would these be for birthday or wedding favours??!! 

Now I promise you that this was literally made in minutes. About 10 actually!  The hardest part was tying the silly ribbon!!

Thank you so much for stopping in today. I appreciate your visits!

Until next time...stay crafty!!
