Stampin' Up! Botanical Tag Thinlit

I still had the Stampin' Up! Botanical Tag Thinlit on my work desk from the card I posted last week, so I decided to make a treat holder project with this thinlit and the 2" X 2" X 2" clear treat boxes.  I happened to have some Dove Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Caramels covered in a foil that matched our Coastal Cabana cardstock, so I used this as an opportunity to break open (and sample) these wonderful chocolates!!  


The 2" X 2" X 2" Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are shipped flat, and easily fold together.  To ensure each box arrives scratch-free, there is a thin film that you'll want to remove when you assemble the boxes. 

Then I cut and scored a 8-1/2" X 2" strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock.  The scoring dimensions are listed in the recipe below, and I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to easily score my cardstock. 

After scoring the Coastal Cabana cardstock, I realized that it might be difficult to adhere the detailed die cut to the clear acetate box without getting glue everywhere, so I grabbed a sheet of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets and cut an 8-1/2 X 2" strip and removed the backing to adhere it to the Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I creased the score maks with a bone folder to ensure the cardstock and backing would adhere to the tiny treat box once cut.

I then die cut the Botanical Tag shape into each 2" section of the 8-1/2" X 2" strip.  I essentially die cut the 8-1/2" strip 4 times.  The die size is a perfect fit for these 2" sections.

   Then remove the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet backing and adhere the die cut to the four sides of the acetate treat boxes.  The image below shows one treat box with only the die cut, while the second box is filled with candies and the top is decorated with bows and leafy die cuts.  

The bow was created with the 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle layered over a retired  Pool Party ribbon.  My Coastal Cabana ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack arrives Wednesday, so I'll finish decorating the 2nd treat box one that ribbon arrives.   In addition to the bow, I used the leafy die that is one of the dies in the Botanical Tags Thinlit set, shown below, and die cut two leafy pieces that I added to ribbon on the top of the decorated treat box.  I also chose to add the ribbon onto the top of the treat box with glue dots instead of wrapping the ribbon around the full box so that the box can be opened without untying the ribbon.   Also I didn't want the ribbon to cover any of the flower die cuts. 

The Botanical Tag Thinlit includes three different tag tops or images that you'll find useful for cards, scrapbook accents, or treat bags and boxes.  I can't  wait to find more ways to use this set of thinlits!!
