Do you sometimes need a small gift box but hate making them from scratch? There’s an answer for that. Stampin’ Up has the Love You Always treat boxes that are like mini matchboxes with a slide out “drawer.” The boxes are pre-scored so all you have to do is assemble the box, insert the drawer and then all that’s left to do is for you to decorate it! You get 10 boxes for $9.00. That’s cheaper than buying a box at the Dollar Store. They are on page 11 of the Jan-June Mini Catalog.
I made one for Mother’s Day, one for Father’s Day and one for a birthday. They come together really fast, which means you could put one together at the last minute if you had to. You probably don’t always have a gift box hanging around when you need one and when you’re crunched for time, you’re not going to start putting one together from scratch. So, you end up shoving your gift into a gift bag when what you really wanted was a pretty box. These treat boxes are the answer to that problem.

Below is a list of the supplies needed for all three gift boxes, plus measurements and directions. You can make all three or just pick the ones you like. You can even swap out the DSP for what you have on hand. The paper and ribbon I used happened to be what I had on hand. You can do the same.
