Recently our family spent a fun evening up in a nearby canyon with some friends. We had a campfire, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, ate s’mores, talked, and sang camp songs. We made some great memories, and it got me thinking about how fun and unique making s’mores is even though it’s something so simple. My creative mojo took over and I came up with a great all occasion gift idea for the summer months–a s’mores treat box!
I love the bakery box alone, but the window makes it extra fun because you can see the s’more makings inside. Your recipient will enjoy getting this special treat. Here’s how to make one for yourself:
2. Punch a rounded 3×4 card from scrap paper using the 3×4 Card Punch. Place the card template on the backside of one bakery box piece and trace it. Cut out the card shape using an Art Knife and back it with clear plastic or cellophane.
3. Assemble the box and add a border, some baker’s twine, and a tag at the top. Fill the box with chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows.
This treat box would make a great gift for neighbors, friends, coaches, or even a summer reading reward for your kids. You could also make this s’more packaging as favors for a backyard party or barbeque.
