S’mores Treat Box

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:

1. Die cut two pieces to make a large bakery box from Farmers Market paper using the Large Bakery Box Template Die.

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.

Easter Sunday Brunch Favor

Here’s a favor idea for your Easter Sunday Brunch guests. You can fill it with cookies, candy, or whatever else you’d like to share with your visitors.

To create this favor container, I used the new Large Bakery Box Die and some patterned paper from the Chalkboard collection. I cut the box die twice, and then hot glued the two pieces together.

I trimmed banner flags from some 6 inch strips and added them to the front of the box, and then layered a doily on top that I cut with the Lattice Doily Die. To create the bow, I die cut some patterned paper with the new Gift Bow Die.

I love that the die includes guide holes to help you line up your bow just right when you fold and assemble it! To finish off the favor box I die cut a few mini butterflies using the Butterfly Nesting Dies, and I cut a tag with the new Home Made Nesting Dies.

You can add “Happy Easter” to the tag, or you can personalize it and use it as a place marker at the table as well.
