Yesterday I shared two versions of a sweet slider treat box for some foil covered chocolate hearts turned in to strawberries.
I had several people ask where I found the foil wrapped “strawberries”. I purchased the chocolate hearts from Amazon. You can click HERE for the link. Thanks to the Strawberry Builder Punch the transformation was quick and easy! I stamped the strawberry stem from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp set on Granny Apple Green cardstock with Garden Green Ink. I punched it out and added it to the top of the chocolate heart with Mini Glue Dots. Voila!
Here’s a tip when using the Strawberry Builder Punch (or any builder punch): Cut cardstock in strips to stamp and punch. That way you don’t waste cardstock punching the other pieces each time.
Today I have all the details to make these slider treat boxes. The box is made the same for both projects.
To make the box: Cut cardstock (Garden Green) 3 x 5 1/2 and score at 3/4″ on all four sides. Cut along the horizontal side up to the score line to form the tabs. Cut notches as shown and add adhesive to the tabs to adhere box together.
*Optional – I added a DSP layer (1 1/4 x 4) inside the bottom of the box.
To make the fold over belly band:
- Cut cardstock (Garden Green) 7 1/4 x 4 1/8. Score @ 3/4, 2 3/8, 3 1/8, 4 3/4, 5 1/2.
- With the Layering Circles Dies, cut a 1 1/8 circle from the cardstock (*see photo below).
- Stamp the strawberry vine in Garden Green Ink.
- Add a 5/8 x 4 strip of DSP between the score lines below the stamped image.
- Layer the Circle Dies and cut both at once. Adhere to the circle on top.
- On the backside of the circle add a 1 1/2 x 2 piece of Window Sheet with glue dots.
- Adhere a 1 1/2 x 4 piece of DSP along the bottom of the box. Stamp sentiment in Real Red on 3/4 x 2 1/2 piece of Whisper White. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Apply a strong adhesive (Stampin’ Seal or Tear & Tape) to the top of the box. Fold this piece over and adhere below the first score line.
- Adhere another 1 1/2 x 4 piece of DSP on the inside. Stamp sentiment in Real Red Ink on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut out. Adhere to DSP layer.
- Stamp two strawberry outlines in Poppy Parade ink on Whisper White. Stamp filler image in Poppy Parade stamping off first. Punch with Strawberry Builder Punch. Add stamped stem with glue dot and adhere one beside the sentiment on the inside.
- Stamp flowers with Flirty Flamingo and punch. Adhere to stamped vine with Mini Glue Dots. Add Heart Resin Dots to the centers.
- Slide in the box with candy and wrap Real Red ribbon around the box and tie a bow. Adhere stamped and punched strawberry to ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional. *The ribbon will slide on and off the box to open.
Here’s a look at the open and closed view side by side.
It’s easy to just slide the candy box out from either side of the treat holder.
The only difference between this “fold over” version and the stand up version (below) is the size of the cardstock for the belly band. It has one less score line and it a little taller.
The slider box, flowers, and circle window are made the same.
Here’s the measurements for the belly band and DSP:
Garden Green Cardstock: 7 1/2 x 4 1/8 scored at 3/4, 2 3/8, 4 3/4
Berry Delightful DSP: 5/8 x 4, 1 7/8 x 4
