Diagonal Scoring Plate Hostess Goodie Box

Here's another fun project idea for the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate that was shared by Donna Griffith at Leadership 2012. 

Goodie box - empty

It's a little gathered box that can hold all kinds of treats!  I created one and gave it to my Hostess at her party last night!

Goodie box - with goodies

Here is the one I gave her filled with fun little goodies.  It was so packed it was difficult to get a good photo that would show all the stuff. So, I emptied it out…

Goodie box - contents

Look at all the fun stuff I stuck inside! 

  • 8 Wrapped Hershey's Nuggets
  • 3 Pretty Postage Gift Tags
  • 5 Tempting Turquoise Bright Buttons
  • 3 Heart Notes with Mini Envelopes
  • 2 ft. of Island Indigo Baker's Twine

Isn't that fun?!  I love how almost everything is in the same coordinating Pool Party and Island Indigo colors.  Using the Pool Party Patterns Designer Paper for the box and the chocolate wraps and the envelopes really ties it all together. 

I love how the Round Tab Punch makes the perfect spool for the Baker's Twine.  And, I added the buttons to a Small Cello Bag to keep them contained.  But, my absolute favorite goodies are the Hearts Notes and Mini Envelopes—adorable!

Diagonal Plate Goodie Box How-Tos

This is a super easy box to make if you have the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate!

  1. Cut your designer paper to 6" square.
  2. Score vertically at 2" and 4" on both sides of your paper.
  3. Turn paper over and score diagonally from the corners to the intersection of the score lines.

Here is what your score lines should look like.

    Once you fold on the score lines, simply punch holes in each point and string with ribbon to hold the shape.

    Goodie box - filler

    I was surprised at the amount of stuff that would fit in the box!  I wanted the contents to all be peeking out of the top, so I added some filler "grass" in the bottom.  I made this with scraps of Island Indigo that I ran through the Crimper and scrunched up.

    About 12 strands was just enough to keep my goodies from sinking.  Perfect!

    Wouldn't this make a cute little Easter basket filled with jelly beans and chocolate bunnies?  Oh, the possibilities!

    Heart Mini Envelopes How-Tos

    • Cut designer paper to 3" square.
    • Score each side diagonally at 1-1/4" mark.
    • Snip away the triangles where the score lines intersect.
    • Fold and adhere.

      1. I’ve made those goodie boxes before. They are so cute! I love how you color coordinated everything. It’s a great presentation and what a lovely hostess gift!It might be time for me to make another one. Maybe to sit on my desk to gather all the bits and pieces of papers and ribbons that are scattered on there now. 🙂
