Inchies Treat Holder

Hi everyone! I have a totally adorable idea to show you today. First of all, I saw this idea at Dawn's Stamping Studio. But, she is a Stampin' Up Lady and I don't have the punches she used so I had to improvise. I will let you know farther down the dimentions I used. But, if you are interested in the project check her blog out first to see basically how it is put together.
Above are the closed boxes. Now keep in mind that the "Jesus" square on top of the box is a 1inch square. So these things are tiny. The stamp set I used on this project is from Clear Dollar Stamps. The set is called Christmas Inch Stamps.This next picture shows them in their stages of opening. You lift the ribbon and out pops a Starburst treat.

Now above is me holding the box open. These are my dimentions - For the box I used a strip 1 1/4 inch by 5 3/8 inches. I scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 3 3/4, then 5. The bottom and top (this is where she used one of the punches I didn't have) is a 2 1/4 inch square. I then took that square and scored 1/2 inch on all four sides. I cut the corners to make that piece foldable. Also, I didn't have any of the Window Sheet she was talking about. You will need a hard piece of plastic, I cut apart one of my Spellbinders plastic containers. I also do not have any of the other punches she used to decorate the box. I just used the stamp set and cut around the frame, for the inside circle my punch was a 1 inch circle. I say just use whatever you have in your room and have a great time! If you have any questions, you can email me and I will try to help.

Fabulous project! I can't imagine how fiddly those boxes must've been to make, but well worth the effort.

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers this time.

Super duper cute idea! Thanks for sharing it. Also, thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I'm so sorry to learn that you've lost a daughter. I do believe they are all together in Heaven - thanks for sharing, I've had a really rough day.
