My Creative Time: To Die For: Triangle Christmas In July Treat Boxes

Hi, today is To Die For over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are showing you new ways to use your dies. I was inspired by these triangle boxes I saw on Pinterest and wanted to see if I could create them with the Stitched Favor Box Die. I know it's mid summer but I wanted to do a little bit of a Christmas in July project.

Below are the instructions for creating the treat boxes using the Stitched Favor Box Die. I just love how they turned out! I also love how you can create the characters either way. Maybe next time I will create a snowman similar to the Santa. These will be fun to give away during the holiday season with a little treat inside. 

1. Cut out two Stitched Favor Box Die cuts and cut off the tab sides

2. On the back side, draw score lines

3. Glue the two parts together and score along the lines

4. Fold along each score mark

5. Run a ribbon through the slits on the treat box.
 Outside to inside and outside to inside again

6. Tie the ribbon to bring the whole treat box together

Instructions for Santa: Santa's hat and mustache are from the Santa Suit Dies. Santa's beard and hair are a cut up Fun Stitched Cloud Die cut. The circle for the face and part of the beard were cut out using a die from the Your Spot On Stamp Set.  Santa's face was stamped on with a Peachy Keen face stamp. The nose and mouth were colored in with Copic markers. His eye brows were colored in with a white gel pen. 

The belt and buttons were created using dies from the Holidays Tags Stamp & Die Set.  The belt buckle and coat strip were cut out using dies from the Santa Suit Dies

The same technique was used to create the box for the snowman. The snowman's hat was cut out using dies from the I'm A Lucky Girl Stamp Set.  The snowman face is also a Peachy face that was colored in with Copic markers. To create the little scarf, a piece of red felt was cut with the Vintage Stitched Label Die.  It was then cut in half with scissors and the ends were cut off as well.
