I love the way the Timbits box opens and closes. So, I decided to scan, trace, miniaturize and share it.

Attached are:

Never heard of timbits...but the box is adorable! Thanks so much for sharing!

cobrielle 01-21-2008 09:59 AM

Timbits are a Canadian thing. From a donut shop called Tim Horton's. We Canadians are addicted to them. :-D

so by what % ?

warrenas 01-23-2008 06:19 AM

GEEZ, Gayla, what a great question!!!! I wouldn't have thought of that....What was the answer???

cobrielle 01-23-2008 06:30 AM

I still want timbits.

Why won't they magically appear in my box??? :(

Hi Ladies! In the instructions (#11) she recommends enlarging it on a printer and tracing it to 12"x12" CS if you want it larger. My guess is that she just used the size as it is printed. The bottom of the box measures 1 5/8" x 2 7/16". The real question here is will the chocolate nuggets fit in this box and how many? ; )

nikkii 01-23-2008 01:53 PM

Oh jeez. I shouldn't have looked at this post. I work across the parking lot from Tim Hortons. I'm glaring at them right now. I hope you got your Timbits Jen because I'm a goin' ta git mine right now. Dang!
Great idea though. Thank you so much for being so clever and sharing it with us all Jeanne.

tayransom 01-26-2008 12:29 PM

Thank-You, What a great idea. TFS

Bobbye 01-26-2008 12:50 PM

Thank you so much for figuring this out. I can't wait to try it. Of course, I might need to run to Tim's for a few apple fritter bits just to give me the energy to try this project... What a great idea.!

missyterry 01-27-2008 06:40 PM

Sorry it took me so long to reply -
I did not enlarge it - I used it as is. It is very tiny. The photo shows the original size of the box and the miniature version I created. The reason I did it this particular size is so that it can print onto a regular printer sized paper (8 1/2" x 11").

If you want to enlarge it on a photocopier, try enlarging it by 109%. I just did simple math (12 divided by 11). It won't get that much bigger because I used the width of the 8 1/2" x 11" page. The width of a 12x12 page is only 1 inch larger.

My other idea is to enlarge it as much as you want. The printer should spit out several pieces of paper which you can and piece together with tape. Create/Draw your own little tabs at the folds which is to attach the cardstock together.

For example, if you wanted the box at 200%, cut out the template so that you will have two seams instead of one. The second seam will be at the opposite corner. Create the same type of tab that already exists on the template. You should be able to maximize 2 sheets of 12x12 at 218%.

Warning - I did not test my "theories" above, I only used my calculator.

I'm glad everyone is enjoying it! That makes it all worth while!

This is just adorable! As a brand new (as in hours) demo, I am madly collecting ideas for day long workshops etc. This will definitely be one of them!

2busyscrappin 02-01-2008 05:12 PM

This is exactly what I have been looking for!! I love your version of this box. Thank you so so so so much for sharing with us. I am in awe of you guys that can create templates like this :-D

Stampin_U.P._North 03-15-2008 06:26 PM

Dunkin Donuts does NOT closely compare to Timmy's!

Now I want some chocolate glazed TimBits and a LARGE French Vanilla Cappuccino *drooooooool*

It's been YEARS since I've had Timmy's :(

Kimmie0270 03-21-2008 05:01 PM

Here's my Timbit's Box... there are a few pictures in my gallery so you can see it from all angles...

No dunkin in Ontario or just in your town ? Here, where you can find a Tim Horton, you can also find a Dunkin Donuts... often just side by side... like in my town ! And, yes, Timbits is the same thing like Dunkin's Munchkins. It's the piece removed from the donut to make the hole.

So... now, I want timbits !!!

And very beautiful pattern ! I love it !

shanismom 09-28-2008 09:32 PM
