Treat Boxes

I wanted to make some treat boxes for the girls I will be cropping with at an upcoming retreat.  I found this little box on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (page 22) and cut it at 7".  I love this little box because there is no tape involved to put it together.  You just fold it up and use some ribbon or twine to hold it shut.  It fits two Ghirardelli chocolate squares in it perfectly.
  Paper - Echo Park
Stamp (Sweet Salutations) and ink from Close To My Heart
Ribbon from Michaels
Circle punch from EK Success
