Treasure Chest Treat Boxes

Treasure Chest Treat Boxes by Annie Williams - Main

Hi again!  I’m back today with some treat box party favors I made recently for a little one’s pirate-themed birthday party.  As soon as I saw this new design from Katie Jarman in the Silhouette Design Store, I knew it would make adorable favors!

I cut the main pieces of the chest using the standard settings for Textured Cardstock in the Studio software from some “Bubinga” woodgrain cardstock that I found online at Cards & Pockets.  The assembly is pretty self-explanatory, but you start by folding and gluing the sides of the base up.  Then, after you glue the top panel to each semi-circle side, you’ll just need to adhere the “hinge” to the base.

The metallic accent pieces were then cut from Silhouette Printable Gold Foil…since it is self-adhesive, the foil was very simple to add to my treasure chest.

I added little pirate images from Pink & Main next.  After stamping these in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic X-press It Blending Card, I colored each one with Copic markers.

The sentiment (perfect for pirate party favors!) was heat-embossed in black on some scrap red cardstock and die-cut using the coordinating dies for the “Stitched Greetings” stamp set.

After filling them with dark chocolate nuggets, my little treat boxes were ready for the party.  I hope you enjoyed this fun summertime favor idea and I’d love to hear your comments!
