Flowerbug's Inkspot

A cute box with free template and video tutorial too!

Marilyn shared this sweet treat box at our last Flowerbug's Team Meeting. She cased it from Pootles. It looks almost like a mini milk carton.

Her box is 2 X 2" and 3 1/4" tall. She used the Pansy Petals designer paper, Soft Succulent card stock and ink. This pretty DSP is retiring now; get it here while supplies last.

I made one for a recent FB Live video too. I chose to use the Flowering Fields DSP; it's so springy!

They're made in Pear Pizzazz and Fresh Freesia card stock and the greeting is from the Celebrating You stamp set seen here. The greeting tag is from the Stitched So Sweetly dies which are retiring now and available while supplies last! See the dies here.

She made up a template and another sheet of card stock showing you how it looks after trimming and cutting the template as shown. Watch the video here or below to see how it's made.

It's 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" and is similar to a 2 4 6 8 box. Score on the short side at 1 1/2", 3 1/2" & 4 1/2". Score on the long side at 2", 4", 6", & 8". Then cut away the areas crossed off and cut up to the score lines as shown.

You'll need 4 pieces of Designer Paper measuring 1 3/4" square. And 4 pieces measuring 1 3/4" X 3/4" for the top. She punched two holes in the top flaps to thread ribbon through to tie in a bow.

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful project Marilyn!
