Happy Friday! If you have been around my blog for a bit, you know how much I love making treat boxes and gift bags. I have a new one to share with you today, the Triangle Treat Box. This 'box' is a bit unusual because it's triangle shaped but it's still really easy to put together. Here is what you need:
-3 inch x 11 inch piece of cardstock (or patterned paper)
-scrap piece of paper (matching the 3x11 inch paper)
I am using paper from Momenta's Chloe's Garden Pyramid Paper pack and matching letters and embellishments.
Score your 3 inch x 11 inch paper at 3 inches, 6 inches and 9 inches.
Fold the paper on the score lines to create a triangle. At this point, do NOT glue anything together!
Keeping this triangle together, place it on top of the scrap paper. Trace the base of the triangle on the scrap paper.
cut out the traced triangle. Leave a small border of extra paper around
the traced pencil lines. This does not have to be perfect!
on the traced pencil lines as closely as you can. After scoring, cut
off the tips of the end of the scored line with scissors.
the scored paper around the triangle base, securing with strong
adhesive as you go (I typically use a glue stick). Make sure the folded
flaps adhere to the inside of your paper/box.You don't want the scored area ou
Your triangle treat box is complete!
Embellish the outside as you wish!! I used Shimmer and Shine stickers and Annabelle Puffy alphabet stickers to create my outer panel.
I used the same materials to create a matching card. Every pretty treat box deserves a matching card!!

a small candle dressed up in a cellophane bag or even a gift card!
Isn't that fun? It's a great alternative to a square box. I hope you have something fun planned for this weekend. We have my niece and SIL visiting this weekend, my kids are very excited to play with their cousin!!
Happy Friday Friends!
