Window Treat Box Tutorial

1 & 1/2 square Card Blanks (I have used Craft Creations 144mm x144mm sq card blanks)
Coloured Cardstock 
Patterned Paper
Decoupage Image

Step 1, On the back of the cardstock score and cut the lines as per the instructions below.

You should end up with this.

Step 2, As per the instrutions pic (above) cut & score the Box lid & Joining Strip.

Slit the corners to create tabs, fold inwards and stick on the inside to create a lid.

Step 3, Trim the patterned paper into 4, 9cm x 7cm pieces.

Step 4, Attach the pieces to the scored panels on the front side of the cardblank.

Step 5, Using a small oval nestie & Big Shot Machine, die cut a hole in either of the 2 middle panels.

Step 6, Using the Big Shot & Nesties, die cut an oval frame & 2 scalloped squares (slightly bigger than your lid) from coloured cardstock.

Step 7, Attach the die cut frame to the front of the window.

Step 8, Trim a piece of Acetate to about 9cm x 7cm and attach onto the back of the card blank covering the hole.

Step 9, Attach the joining strip (score facing outwards) onto the last panel on the back of the card blank. Fold the strip back on itself , bring the card blank over and join up to create your box.

Step 10, Fold and stick the bottom flaps together (to create a box) and stick onto one of the scalloped squares. Add your decoupage image at this point too!!.

Step 11, Attach your box lid to the remaining scalloped square of coloured cardstock.

Step 12, The lid should then slot into your box, with the scalloped square preventing it from falling in.
