Happy April everyone! To celebrate we have a DIY Easter Treat Box tutorial by Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Scrapbooking Cecilia. In the video tutorial Cecilia teaches us how to create a box from scratch. Plus, she has packed a surprise in the lid adding extra dimension for decoration to personalize each box. We love that this box tutorial could be used for any special occasion with our Time to Flourish 8×8, this calendar collection features two pages per-month and has cut-a-part elements for almost every holiday. We hope this project kick starts your creativity and you have a productive and happy weekend.
Treat Box with Dimensional Lid Tutorial
By Scrapbooking Cecilia
“Hello G45 crafty friends, Cecilia here with this scrap treat box with a compartment under the lid, perfect for Easter, Mother’s Day or any special occasion. It’s a beautiful and different treat box that you can make easily and with a few elements, at the end of this post, you will find the measurements for the three pieces and here is the list of what I used:
Graphic 45 cream cardstock provided in your Pattern & Solids pads.
Shabby white embossing enamel by Stampendous.
A piece of acetate about: 3 ½” x 2 ¾”.
Velum to cut out your flowers.
Inks to add color to your flowers.
Leftover pieces of chipboard to add dimension on the embellishments.
A piece of twine for the tag.
Some small pearls, beads and sequins.

I have some Tips for you:
TIP – This time I used velum to make my flowers because they look so light and delicate, perfect to match with the beautiful papers! Shape them as usual, but don’t use water, just your inks with a sponge.
TIP – The compartment under the lid is ½” deep, so keep all the embellishments in that space. I checked with my hand every time I was adding elements, specially die cuts with chipboard on the back.
TIP – Add pearls, beads and sequins in matching colors for an extra sparkling to these adorable papers.
Thank you for your attention! Get your papers and try this treat box.” ~ Cecilia
