Paper House "You are Loved" Treat Box

Hello Friends!

Welcome to the Paper House/Glue Dots Collaboration Blog Hop!  I have a project I made with a friend in mind as a Just Because treat box because she's amazing, and so are those Paper House Papers!  

Size: 2 ½” x 2 ½” x 3 ¼” Box and a 3” x 4” card/envelope
Level: Moderate
Time: 40 minutes

This box can come together in no time with the punch board.  The hard part is picking which beautiful paper to use! Paper House and Glue Dots is a magic match!



Glue Dots® Super Strength Tape Runner
Glue Dots® Pop Up Dots
Glue Dots® Mini Dots


Paper House Color Washed Paper Pad
Paper House StickyPix Cardstock Stickers
Gold Paper Clip


We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board
Bone Folder
Paper Trimmer
Craft Mat


Step 1:

Once you’ve decided the paper for your box, use the paper trimmer to cut a 9” square. Use the 1-2-3 punchboard to make the box, following the steps for the 2 ½” x 2 ½” x 3 ¼” box.  Fold the score lines, and glue the box together with the Glue Dots® Tape Runner. 

Step 2:

With one of the many papers in the Color Washed pad, choose a rectangle and trim it out with scissors. Use the bone folder to crease it in it half. It should be about 3” x 4”.  Find a sentiment you like and cut that too.  With the StickyPix stickers, pick a few stickers you like with the rectangle you chose.  Trim one of the border stickers to fit the length of the card base.  Stick it down and add the rest of the elements, using Pop-Up Dots for the sentiment.

Step 3:

Chose a paper that goes with the box and cut it down to a 6 ¼” square to make an envelope.  Follow the instructions on the 1-2-3 board to make an envelope.  Really score this and use the Glue Dots® Super Strength Tape Runner to glue the envelope together.  Once you sign the card, add a Mini Glue Dot® to the flap and seal it closed.

Step 4:

Fill the box with a treat of your choice, and close it.  With the gold paper clip, attach the envelope to the box and you’re all set!

This works for just about any occasion and looks beautiful with those gorgeous papers from Paper House!
