A Hybrid Freebie for All

I've created a fun way to make a treat container that can be adapted for any occasion. I have options for those paper and glue scrappers and those who are strickly digi all the way. I sort of made up the template so if you are super picky about everything being all perfect, well just know it won't be perfect LOL (hey we all need a little originality don't we?)
Here's the Template.
The way I did mine was part digi and part glue and scissors style.
You need to print out the template on cardstock and cut it out. I created a design digitally with Krystal's kits. I just eyeballed it to have the pattern in the middle of the box. Then printed them out on cardstock also. I used the template and cut out each box. I folded it on the dotted lines. Before gluing together I used some scrap patterned paper to adhere to the inside of the box. I then inked the edges of the box and THEN glued the sides together. Fold both side flaps up then fold the back in first and then the front will be last. Then you can fill with candies, cakes, or other items. You can embellish with ribbon, buttons, gems and such but for this one I left them with just the image I printed out.
I made 4 designs and you can download each one or all if you like.

You can print the template out and then run it through your printer so your digi design will print on the opposite side and then cut out. Just know My 4 printables will NOT print out with the template on the back so if you try it, it will not line up properly. I just did it the old fashioned way.

Happy Scrappin!
