Holiday Blizzard Treat Basket by Nola J. Burkhard
Here is a cute little treat basket you can make in 15-20 minutes. While the one I made was used for Halloween treats and is decorated with Witches, Goblins and Spooks, it could easily be made for any holiday, or for table decorations or named place holders filled with little treats just by changing the stamps used. It measures 3" x 3" x 2" x 2" without the handle..

Cut Peach Parfait card stock at 6 x 12 inches. Run through the Big Shot with the Fancy Favor die and crease all the folds.
Apply sticky tape to the wide end side and the two little flaps.
Rub with finger, take off white part of tape, fold into box so that the bottom looks like this:
...and the side to look like this:
Stamp the images from Toxic Treats that you want to use with Concord Crush ink onto white paper.
Take the #4 Die from the Labels Collection and put it around the Witch stamp.
Take a piece of a sticky note sheet and lay it across some of the die and paper--so that it will hold it in place.
Run it through the Big Shot or other die cutting machine.
Run a scrap from the pattern paper you want to use through the Big Shot with #5 die from the Labels Collection.
Glue the 2 die cut shapes together.
Apply Zots to the back of the pattern die piece and stick it to one of the wider panels on the box.
Repeat above steps for the opposite panel.
Pick out the pieces you want for the 2 sides. I used 2 from this great batch of Chipboard-by Brenda Walton for mine. I love that they show everything in the little box on the back!
Pick out 2 more pieces from the Martha Stewart collection for the other side and glue them on.
Punch out a couple of bats with the bat punch and glue them wherever you want.
Cut a piece of 12" x .75" for your handle from the same Peach Parfait card stock. (I used some of the left over paper from the die cut so that it has the same design on it.)
Use sticky tape to the ends of your card stock and glue it to the inside of the box. Voila, finished!
Below is a photo of how I keep my dies. I use a sheet of magnet paper inside a clear stamp case that I can then decorate on the front with the die shapes. Storing them this way is great as they really stay put!
Hope you enjoyed my little Holiday Blizzard basket for treats project!
