A Window Treat Box for any Occasion

Hi everyone!! Today I'd like to share with you my 'go to' treat box when I need a quick gift.

Supplies needed are - 
  • One 6 5/8" x 11" piece of cardstock
  • One 4 1/4" cardstock square
  • Four pieces of patterned paper measuring 2 1/2" x 3 7/8"
  • One piece of patterned paper measureing 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"
  • Oval cutting tool or Oval Nestabilities
  • Big Shot/Grand Calibur
  • Adhesive
  • Scallop Edge Punch

Line up your 6 5/8" x 11" piece of cardstock vertical with your paper cutter and score at 2 5/8".

Turn your cardstock and score at 2 5/8", 5 1/4", 7 7/8" and 10 1/2"

 Fold all the score lines, and then cut on them to make flaps along the bottom. Cut off the smallest end piece.

Center your die/oval cutter between the score lines and the top of the box on one of the box side panels and cut out an oval.

 Adhere your patterned paper pieces to the box front and add some adhesive to the flap on the end.

Adhere a piece of Acetate on the inside box to cover the window to keep treats from falling out. If your treats are bagged then there is no need to add the acetate.

With the box upside down and the oval facing toward you, fold in the 2 side flaps.

Add adhesive to the flap in the back of the box - the one with no oval. fold down the front flap to finish the box and adhere the flap with the adhesive on top. This is how the box should look now.

Score your 4 1/4" square piece of cardstock at 3 1/2" on all sides and cut on the right score line on each side, creating flaps.

 Punch the edges off your square with the scallop edge punch, but cut the scalloped area off the flaps. You do not want them to show under the other scallops. I used double dot punch which isn't ideal, but I like the design. Add glue on the flaps to adhere the lid together by tucking the flaps underneath.

 Adhere the 2 7/8 square to the top of the lid.

Trim out your pre-coloured image 

Decorate the box as desired.
