Retirees Spotlight: Everyday Elegance Simply Sent Treat Box

If you're looking for quick & easy cards, there is nothing quicker & easier than the Simply Sent Card Kits from Stampin' Up! They come with pre-printed cards with matching embellishments.  Simply add your own stamped sentiment and you've created a cute card in minutes!

All of the Simply Sent Kits are on the Retired Accessories List, and a sneak peek of the new catalog tells me that they are not being replaced by new kits. 

In other words, get them while they last!

But, my current favorite is the Everyday Elegance Simply Sent Kit, because I learned how to make this fun little treat box from Julie Davison at Julie's Stamping Spot

Isn't it the cutest little thank you gift?!  You can make the same box out of either the Cherry Cobbler or Baja Breeze cards in this kit—that's 8 boxes!  Julie has a handy tutorial printout on her blog, but here are the basic steps…

Everyday Elegance Treat Box How-Tos

  • With the decorative edge at the top of your Simply Scored, score down the card at 1-1/8" and 4-3/8".

Everyday elegance box 1.5

  • Turn 90°, then place the white end on the left side of the Simply Scored. At the 2" mark, score from the top and bottom edges until it the lines intersects the first score line.  It's pre-scored at 4-1/4".  Score again at 5-3/8".

  • Cut along the score lines on each side up to the intersecting score line.  Completely cut off the two corner panels on the white end.

  • Add Sticky Strip along the outer edge of the white tabs.

Everyday elegance box 4

  • Flip the piece over, then add more Sticky Strip to the outer edges of the section next to the decorative edge.

Everyday elegance box 4.5

  • Assemble the box with the white tabs adhered first, so the red tabs will be showing.

You're done!  I stamped a Thank You Kindly sentiment on one of the self-adhesive labels that came with the kit, then layered on a Cherry Cobbler Decorative Label punch.  A couple of Rhinestone Jewels dresses it up!

Then, fill a Medium Cellophane bag and with some Rich Regal Designer Patterns Paper wrapped Hersheys Nuggets (or any other goodies!), and tie with some Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon.
