Who says that Independence Day colors have to be Red, White, and Blue when crafting??? I LOVE crafting with colors and the new Lessebo Colours collection is loaded with lots and lots of them! So, today I will be using non-traditional colors to show off my Fourth of July Treat Boxes. And as an added bonus, I have included a FREE SVG file for you to use to do the same!! So, let’s play!!Supplies:
- Cardstock Warehouse Papers:
- Cherry Lessebo 100lb
- White Lessebo 100lb
- Canary Lessebo 100lb
- Flame Lessebo 100lb
- Sorbet Yellow Colorplan
- Silver Mirror
- Treat Boxes SVG Files
- Foam Dots
- Hot glue/Wet glue/Double-sided tape
- Zig Glue Pen
Start out by cutting your desired amount of boxes. You have a couple of choices to have a window or not. I started cutting my bases in the white cardstock. Then I added color for the layers. I am making 3 boxes at the same time - so here are all my different papers and decorations.
Take the following pieces, fold at the perforated marks, and attach the sides together.
Once the long set has been put together, add the bottom square. NOTE: I found it easier to close the 4 pieces together FIRST then add the bottom base. You should end up with a piece that looks like this.
Next, take the following pieces (the lid) and put them together the same way. Here is the set.
Now we can add the colors/layering pieces. In the following photo my orange (Flame) color is being used as a base. I laid that on top of my box, all the way around. I then added my foam dots to the next layer to add dimension.
Finally, I added all of my decorations to the box and I am done. These will be going to little kids - so I made sure NOT to pack it with tons of decor. 🙂
For the next box - I wanted to share how I added acetate to make the little star windows pop. I added double sided tape around the perimeter of the acetate and adhered it to the box. I used my tiny glue pen to add adhesive to the stars and put them on the outside. It turned out super cute!
You can also use the negative cut outs on your treat box. I added foam dots to the back of the stars and added them to a third box. Violà!
Of course you can decorate your box with extras or keep it simple like I did. Either way, I’m sure it’ll turn out super cute!
As always, thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you!
