Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today,  I am going to share with you three versions of the little take-out box using the Take Out Treats Bundle and products from the Pleasant Pheasants You Can Make it Bundle (which is my featured product this week) from the Holiday Catalog.  All the cardstock and most of the embellishments came from the Pleasant Pheasants You Can Make It Bundle. Each one of the take out treat boxes were created with all levels of crafters in mind.  There’s one for the absolute beginners, to the more advance crafter.  Here’s a look at all three versions.

Stamps Ink Paper:

I started with the very simple version for the beginning Crafters. This version is done with just stamps ink and paper. No fancy stamping no embellishments just quick and easy to do.

I die cut all the pieces I was going to use out and just simply added tear & tape to the areas that needed it and put the box together. I added the tag that was stamped using both stamp sets. I used the row of leaves from the Pleasant Pheasants Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink to match the cardstock; and the greetings came from the Take Out treats stamp set and it was stamped in Cajun Craze.

All three versions use the same color inks and cardstock.

Step it Up:

The stepped up version for intermediate crafter and stamped I used all the same products except I stamped on the label going at an angle and used generational stamping diagonally.

I also stamped the leaves on the box before putting it together in the Mossy Meadow Ink. I added a little linen thread wrapped around the box three times and then tied it in a bow, before adding the tag on the front with Stampin’ dimensionals. Not so hard just a little extra steps to create a different look for the takeout box.

Even More Please:

For the even more please version (for the more advanced crafter) I used all the same things but I used one additional thinlit from the Takeout Thinlits to create this version along with some ribbon and vellum cardstock.

I used the window cut out to create a See through panel on both the front and back of the Treat box so the person getting it can see all the treats. I did have to add a couple pieces of window sheet cut to size to hold the treats in. I will show you a picture of the window in just a little bit.

I tied a bow using the 5/8″ Burlap Striped Trim around the box. I stamped the very vanilla tag using Mossy Meadow ink and the leaves in a diagonal pattern. Tip: To line up each row of the leaves I used my grid paper as a guide. Stamping every other row until I filled up the tag. I then cut a piece of vellum cardstock with the same thinlit and inked up my sentiment first with versa mark then with Cajun Craze ink at the same time and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder. I added it to the other tag with the 1/8″ hole punch and a little linen thread tied around the ribbon.

Each little box will hold 12 Hersey kisses inside with a little room for maybe one or two more. So they hold way more then you think. I figured they would only hold six kisses but I was happily wrong.

Each of these treats boxes measures 2″ x 2″ x 2 3/16″ roughly. So it’s a decent size little treat box for your recipients. And, you can fit a good amount in them. I can also see these being male as little place settings at your Thanksgiving table with some blessing mix inside. I have another version of this Treat box coming out next week with a bow to video so be on the watch for that as well.

I hope that you have enjoyed my Step It Up Saturday post for this week and you will give these products a try. Below you will find a list off all the supplies used along with my customer gift offer for October.
