In Honor of Harry!

Good Morning
So my daughter went to the Harry Potter Midnight premier and decided (at the last minute of course) to make cupcakes. She did a wonderful job with fondant. So, I had to make a couple of simple boxes for her to take along. :) I HAD TO! I knew these boxes would probably be thrown away so I didn't go crazy on them. But these are simple boxes and super quick to make if you are thinking about a quick holder for cookies, pies or cakes:

Here's supply list:

Creative Imaginations Harry Potter Line Paper (2-12x12 for each box)
Creative Imaginations Harry Potter Stickers
Bazzil Basics: Black Prismatic and bling bling (1 or more -12x12 for each box)
Chipboard or cardboard
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Tea Dye
Versa Color: Black

This is such a simple box:

Top and bottom paper: score patterned paper @ 1-1/2 inches on all four sides and cut slits to each corner and adhere to create a short box. Note: You must reinforce the bottom of the box with chipboard or cardboard to support the treats.

Here’s the tricky part: You have to decide how “tall” your treats are going to be and cut your cardstock tall enough to clear them. For this box, I cut 4 strips, 5” wide and 12” long. Score @ 9”. AFTER you have scored….. trim long end of strip 1/8” (It fits better in the box. ). Embellish paper now before you assemble. Adhere strips to make a box making sure the flaps are all on the inside.

Use your tape runner to run a “bead” of adhesive along the inside of your bottom box and insert the cardstock square inside. Ink all the edges (of course) and embellish sides and top as desired!
And the finished Yummies..... None came back (or the boxes :) ) So, I am assuming they were good!
