A yummy way to gift your goodies

A yummy way to gift your goodies

Today, I’m showing you a clever way to package any treats for gifts! These boxes were made for the holidays, but you can do the same thing for Valentines, St. Patrick's day, Easter...I mean you get where I’m going with this? 

As with some of my other crafting, this is going to be done in batch steps. It’s the most efficient and saves time...kind of like how I make my YouTube videos (batch write, batch record, batch edit, batch rocks!)

I’m using a silhouette cameo with a pre bought cut file, I’ll explain more in a bit. You’ll also need paper, I’m using scrapbook paper, tape roller/glue, clear acetate and some yummy treats

First you’ll need a cut file. I’m using a silhouette cut file from the Silhouette America Online design store. The link is in the description. If you’re using a Cricut or brother, check to make sure the files on the similar listings will work for you. The process should still be the same.

Next pick your paper and load onto the cutting mat with the correct blade setting(if using anything before a Cameo 3.) 

Now make sure your file size is correct and have your settings set appropriately. I’m using the preset settings to cut scrapbook paper on a 12x12 sheet with the mat. Send to your machine and watch aimlessly as it hums and cuts your future treat box!

Remove from the cutting mat and repeat until your heart is fulfilled with satisfaction of accomplishment. 

Start assembly. Glue or tape the edges to form a box.  I’m using a tape roller because it’s quick and easy.  I”m also placing a piece of foil in the bottom since I’m putting fudge and cookies, I didn’t want them sticking to the paper.

Next cut your acetate to a size just smaller than the box and tape to the top. If you’re using the embellishment piece on the top, it will cover the clear taped edges and make it look more polished, but you can leave it off to save materials and time. 

Fill ‘er up! Put your yummies in there and deliver to friends, family, neighbors or coworkers! I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial.

I really want to start screen printing paper and fabric and making them into things. So this would be a cool project to screen print your paper design, then cut & make into boxes. Just a thought! See you in the next blog, stay creative!
