Hanging Treat Box

by Christina Fischer

Create one of these and slip over a bottle neck or use as a door hanger.

Supplies

  • 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock

  • Paper cutter with scoring blade

  • Corner rounder

  • 1 3/8" Circle Punch

  • Sticky Strip™

  • Additional cardstock

  • Stamps

  • Ink

  • Embellishments

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Turn 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock sideways and score at 4" and 4 1/2".

  2. Step 2

    Turn the cardstock lengthwise and score at 1/2", 1", 4 1/2", and 5".

  3. Here, the score lines were traced with a marker for visibility. No need to do this at home!

  4. Step 3

    Cut away sections of cardstock as shown in the photo.

  5. Step 4

    Cut a slit on both sides as shown so the squares become small tabs.

  6. Step 5

    Prefold all score lines. It should look like this.

  7. Step 6

    Round the corners of the long back panel.

  8. Step 7

    Punch a circle so the pouch can be slipped over a bottle. Here a 1 3/8" circle punch was used.

  9. Step 8

    Fold to create box and attach tabs to back with Sticky Strip™ or other strong adhesive.

  10. Step 9

    Decorate with stamps, cardstock, paper and embellishments of your choice!

  11. Step 10

    Hang on a bottle and give it away!

Variations

  1. Cut the front and back panels shorter. Fill with "drinks on the go" packets and hang on a water bottle.

    Make the hole larger and hang over a door knob to surprise a neighbor. Perfect for those Halloween "boo" treats!
    Fill with cocoa, gum, a candy bar, or other treats!

I love the project....especially how the scallop punch was used around the circle to hang it on the bottle! So clever!

SO SORRY, but I gave credit to BEATE & it should've gone to CHRISTINA. It's lovely & can't wait to try it.

I love how you highlighted the scored parts, it's so much easier to see what and where to cut. Thanks for the great tutorial!

Fantastic tutorial! Thanks for marking the score lines like that. It's so much easier to see on the computer.

This is such a cute idea; I most likely use for the grandgirls. Thanks for sharing with the rest of the stampin world like us. Appreciate it very much!!!

How fun. I can't wait to start doing this. This will make a great gift for family or friends. Instead of drink mixes, you could do those mini popcorn bags and a bottle of soda. Fun!
