Bunches of Beautiful Boxes - Hanging Treat Box

Hello Scor-Pal Buddies! This month we are sharing with you our favorite "box" type of project. There are soo many wonderful options of boxes that are available to create using the Scor-pal but my favorite type of boxes are ones that hold a little treat. That is why I chose to do a Hanging Treat box. There are many variations of this type of box floating around out there. The boxes can hold anything from fun party supplies to yummy chocolates. I decided to do my box as a flavored water holder that attaches right over the lid of your favorite brand of bottled water. I used Doodlebug Design's new line "Fruit Stand" for my papers and embellishments. Here's how to make it:

3 3/4 x 10  inch cardstock in purple for box base
1 1/2 x 4 inch Stripe paper for box insert
2 x 10 inch Stripe paper for wrap around bottle
1 1/2 x 3 inch green cardstock for box front
1 1/4 x 2 3/4 inch white cardstock for box front ( I embossed mine with an embossing folder)
3/4 x 10 inch green cardstock for rosette on straw
Stickers and embellishments from Doodlebug Design "Fruit Stand" collection
Green straw
Drink Mix and bottled water
1 1/4 inch circle punch to make the hole in the top of the box

Step 1-  On 10 inch side of cardstock score the paper at 3 1/4 , 3 3/4 and 8 inches

Step 2-  On 3 3/4 inch side score the paper at 1/2  and 1 inch.
Rotate the paper around to the other side and score again at 1/2 and 1 inches.
Step 3- Snip away the edges of the paper as shown. Make sure that when you look at your paper that in the middle section you need to be working with the smaller of the 2 middle sections. That needs to be on the top.
Step 4- Add your Scor-Tape to the edges as shown and then fold up the box. Attach the side flaps to the back of the box.

Step 5- Take a 1 1/4 inch circle punch and punch a circle in the upper section of the box as shown.
Step 6- Make a rosette with the green 3/4 x 10 cardstock and attach to the green stripe straw. Embellish front of box as shown. Add drink mix and straw to box. Attach the 2 x 10 inch purple stripe paper wrap around the water bottle.

That's all there is to it! Thanks for joining me and Happy Scoring!
