Ever since I bought my first box die I have been addicted to making treat boxes and I have to tell you that Sizzix Where Women Cook Collection by Jen Long has some delightful little boxes, along with cupcake wrappers, tags and label dies! No matter what kind of treat you are planning to give, there is a darling die to help you spice it up!
While at CHA I didn’t think I would be able to get pictures of this display because there were constant demos, but while waiting in line to get a photo op with Tim Holtz, the crowd thinned enough that I was able to grab just a few. Yay!
I have acquired a couple of the Movers & Shapers dies from this fabulous line and have made all of my little Valentine’s Day treat boxes with them. I have completed 19 of these adorable little boxes and want to make more! They are SO EASY! I especially enjoyed using my Bo Bunny Head Over Heels paper for the complete Valentine look, but any heavier paper or card stock will do depending on the occasion. They are cute even if you just use plain card stock.
I used double sided paper, as both pieces to the box are on the same die and are cut at the same time, so one side is used for the top and the other for the slide out box. Since this is a Movers & Shapers, make sure that you put whichever insert you want in the space provided unless you don’t want a cut-out there, in which case you would leave it empty.
I use Scor-Tape because it is much easier to work with and much less messy than glue. It also gives a good strong hold so I’m not worried about my box falling apart before it gets to the recipient. I can assemble these babies in no time at all using Scor-Tape on all pieces.
To keep my treats from falling through the cut-out on top, I cut pieces from left over packaging that I save from my dies just for projects such as this. Scor-Tape around the edges and stick it on the bottom side. Once on it doesn’t look like there is anything there, but the candy can’t fall out! Its perfect, and technically doesn’t cost anything, so don’t throw away all of your die packaging!

I’m telling you, that you will get hours and hours of enjoyment from the Sizzix Where Women Cook collection of dies no matter which ones you choose. After all, most of us cook and most of us like to share what we cook, and if you are reading this then you must like paper crafting, so why not combine all three and make those delicious treats look even more delectable with a cute tag, label or treat box? I think it just adds a nice little finishing touch. How much fun is that? Your friends will want you to make all of their little gifts too!
Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!
