Stampin' Up! Botanical Tag Thinlit - Again

I can't stop making these cute clear tiny treat boxes using the Stampin' Up! Botanical Tag Thinlit.  Last week I made one in Coastal Cabana.  This week end I made one in Whisper White and another in Petal Pink.  Add a ribbon an a few leave sprigs to the top and wrap the Stampin' Up! Botanical Tag Thinlit die cut around one of the 2" X 2" X 2" tiny treat boxes and you're done!  If you want, add a tag, but I didn't want to obscure the contents inside the box.  We'll make one of these treat holders in the Petal Promenade Class I'm hosting this week end.  Read more about the class below.  


The Botanical Tag includes three different die cuts that would work on your 2" X 2" X 2" Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.  I can't wait to try the one with the birds in Basic Black for Halloween treat boxes.  The same die on Whisper White is perfect for a Garden Party.  I think this is one of the most versatile dies Stampin' Up! had produced in this annual catalog.  

The tiny treat boxes ship flat, and easily fold together.  To avoid scratching the plastic, there is a thin film that you'll want to remove when you assemble the boxes. 

Below is what the 8-1/2 X 2" strip looks like after its been die cut.  I apply a strip of Multipurpose Adhesive strip to the back of the cardstock before die cutting, and I score the cardstock before die cutting.  The scoring dimensions for the cardstock strip:  8-1/2" X 2", scored on long side at 2-1/16", 4-1/8", 6-1/8" and 8-3/16".  I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score my cardstock, but a trimmer would work equally well.   

Wrap-Around die cut 4 times with Botanical Tag Thinlit Die

I die cut the image four times into the 8-1/2" strip and used the Die Cut brush to easily remove the chads from the flowers.

Then I removed the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet backing and adhered the die cut to the four sides of the acetate treat box.  I used a glue dot to secure the final edge flat. 

The bows were created with the 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle either alone or layered over coordinating ribbons.  The Botanical Tags Thinlit set also includes a leafy die that I used to decorate one of the treat boxes.
