Last fall they had a nifty little treat box tutorial that uses 6 by 6 double-sided card stock, a We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, adhesive, a circle or oval punch, some ribbon, and a pair of sharp paper scissors. I had all those things so I made a pink striped one. I made it two different ways. I showed both of them to Dear One who chose this one as his preferred treat box.
Here is a picture of all the materials except scissors, circle punch, and ribbon. I brought everything with me on vacation except the circle punch and the ribbon. Even though I visited Michaels and A C Moore yesterday I resisted the urge to purchase either of those items even though I had many little boxes ready to cut and put together. Tonight when we get back from our foray out to visit local attractions, I will finish the corner rounding, then fold, cut, and adhere more of them together.

Vacation is such a great time to do things without distractions! I always bring reading and knitting and often other "quiet projects", though this time I did NOT bring my sewing machine and quilt project. The last time I did that I did not get square one pieced together and there was a fair amount of flack about filling up the car with "my stuff"! Since we got home from that vacation, I seem to have misplaced that quilt, too. That really bites!
