Birthday Treat Box

I whipped up this cute box with no plans. In fact, I didn't even pull out my Simply Scored. Yup, I was feeling that lazy. I just bent the paper around the arm of my cutter. Honestly, that lazy.

I love how it turned out. I used a half sheet of cardstock. Score at 2, 4, 6, 8 inches. Score bottom at 1.5" Trim some off the top, and use the new border edge punch on the edge. Add some Tear & Tape to get her closed together. Add a quick decoration on the front. Done!

I did stamp on the sides of the box using the Soft Sayings kit stamp set. It is hard to see in the picture, but I thought the sides needed something more than plain cardstock.

Truly a quick and easy project. Might have been easier if I had pulled out my Simply scored. The cutter arm was a bit of a challenge to get a smooth score. All assembled it works out.
