Triangle Treat Boxes Decorated 7 Ways
I found this quick & easy box style on Amanda Charlesworth's blog and I can't stop making them! Since we are in the middle of the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper special, I featured how to decorate this box with several of the DSP patterns that are participating in this offer. If you missed it, check out the LIVE Class I did last week showing how to make the box and decorate in all 7 styles!
Featuring 7 Triangle Treat Boxes!
Join Me For My LIVE Class Every Thursday at 9am ET
Magnolia Lane Triangle Boxes—My first two boxes featured the beautiful Magnolia Lane DSP. I thought these beautiful papers would be fantastic for a bridal shower or wedding favor or a pretty thank you gift for a friend. I love the shape of this box and with that sturdy base and roomy interior, it makes a wonderfully versatile style for all kinds of occasions!
My favorite part of these boxes are that they have a magnetic closure that lightly snaps shut. It's amazing how that cool closure really adds even more elegance to the box! I've hidden the magnets under the DSP, and I show exactly how to add them in the video.
This is a nice size box! The finished dimensions are 3" wide, 3" deep and 2" high. It will hold all kinds of candy, cash and small gifts.
Making The Triangle Box—The box starts with a 7" x 9-3/4" piece of cardstock.
- Score along the 7" side at the 2" and 5" marks.
- Score along the 9-3/4" side at the 1-3/4", 4-1/4" and 7-1/4" marks.
- Cut away the bottom corner panels.
- Cut away the top two panels on each side.
- On the side panel that remains, make a mark along the edge at the half-way point of 1-1/2". Then score from the mark to each corner as shown on the template.
- Fold on all score lines and crease with a Bone Folder.
- Add Tear & Tape Adhesive along the bottom triangle flaps and assemble.
- Watch video to see it in action.
Decorating The Box—This Petal Pink box is decorated with 2 pieces of DSP measuring 2-3/4" x 2-1/4" and one piece measuring 2-3/4" x 1-1/2". I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners of the box flap as well as the DSP that decorates that flap. Before adding the DSP, add the magnetic closures.
Magnetic Closures—I used magnetic clasps from Basic Grey, which you can find at Amazon. I added the magnets before the DSP for two reasons: I wanted to hide the clasps, but more importantly, they were too strong and I needed a couple layers between them or the magnets wouldn't function properly.
- Add one side of the magnet closure to the cardstock box with a Glue Dot on the "adhesive backed" side of the magnet.
- Add the DSP over the top of that panel using Tear & Tape for a secure hold.
- Next, close the box flap and add the other side of the magnet with a Glue Dot on the metal side of the magnet. Let the magnet "snap" into position.
- Add the flap DSP with Tear & Tape.
- Watch the video to see this in action!
Magnolia Flower—I die-cut two each of the two petal sizes in the Magnolia Memories dies. I sponged the edges with Petal Pink ink, then curled each petal with a Bone Folder. I adhered the petals with Glue Dots, then added a So Saffron flower center, also die-cut with the same dies. It's topped with a Gold Faceted Gems and mounted onto the box with Dimensionals.
Magnolia Thanks Box—My second box began with a Mossy Meadow box and a different Magnolia Lane DSP pattern. I stamped the Good Morning Magnolia flower in Petal Pink stamped-off once onto a Whisper White Stitched Shapes die-cut. I added a Mossy Meadow sentiment over the top, layered it onto a Mossy Meadow Layering Circle die-cut and popped it up with Dimensionals onto the box flap. It's topped with a Braided Linen Trim bow and Pearl Jewels.
Pressed Petals Box—I added Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to this Merry Merlot Triangle Box. I love this thinner Designer Series Paper—you get 24 sheets in the pack, so it goes a long way! The some of the patterns are photographed flowers and they are simply LOVELY!
Sentiment Label—I stamped a Beauty & Joy sentiment in Merry Merlot onto a Whisper White Stitched Shapes die-cut and popped it up on the flap. The flower is made with petals from the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape. I arranged each petal onto a 1" Whisper White circle, topped it with the Perennial Essence Flower Centers and attached it to the label with Glue Dots. I finished with some Noble Peacock Rhinestones in pink. This one is my favorite!
Dinoroar Triangle Box—Oooh…what a fun idea for a kid's party! I decorated this Pretty Peacock box with the Dinoroar DSP. I stamped the Dino Days sentiment in Pretty Peacock onto Whisper White, then punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch. I punched another Pretty Peacock Everyday Label shape, cut it in half and adhered the halves to either side of the sentiment. I also added some Old Olive Leaf shapes on the back of the label before popping it up with Dimensionals. The die-cut the pterodactyl from the Dinoroar DSP with the coordinating dies and added him with more Dimensionals. The jewels are from the new Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels…my new favorite accent pack! So adorable!
Garden Lane Triangle Box—I decorated this Mint Macaron box with the Garden Lane DSP. I stamped a Painted Harvest leaf image, stamped off in Mint Macaron, onto a Whisper White Stitched Shapes die, then stamped the sentiment over the top in Garden Green. I didn't really like the way that turned out…it would have looked better with a smaller sentiment so the leaf image would show through. I added some Leaf Punch foliage and topped it with more of the Holiday Rhinestones. I also tried a Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon accent at the top of the flap.
Come Sail Away Triangle Box—I decorated this NIght of Navy Triangle Box with the Come Sail Away striped DSP and tied the coordinating twine around the closure flap. Next, I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Night of Navy onto a Smooth Sailing die-cut. I added the ship steering wheel Sahara Sand die-cut behind the label before popping up with Dimensionals. Finally, I added a single blue rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones. Love this one!
Let It Snow Triangle Box—I focused on mostly Designer Series Papers from the Annual Catalog, but I couldn't resist trying one with this cute Let It Snow DSP! The box base is in Coastal Cabana. I stamped the Snowman Season snowflake in stamped off Coastal Cabana onto a Whisper White Ornate Frames die-cut, then stamped the sentiment over the top in Blueberry Bushel ink. I added a 1/2" strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock behind the label, fishtail cut the ends and popped it up with Dimensionals. This box is finished with some Real Red Curly Ribbon and a couple of Red Rhinestones. So sweet!
