First Ever Scrapp'n Savvy Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Scrappn' Savvy blog hop! During this blog hop, you will visit each instructors' website and see some wonderful projects featuring the We R Memory Keepers "Love Struck" collection. You must leave a comment at each blog, and then return back to the Scrappn' Savvy blog and leave a comment that you have finished the hop. There will be some small prizes given away on each blog for a random commenter, and there will be one grand prize given away from all those comments left on the Scrappn' Savvy blog after you have finished the hop. The order of the blogs to visit is listed below.
Here is a project that I created with the We R Memory Keepers "Love Struck" collection:
Treat Boxes (Pizza Style)

I decided to create something that would be easy to mass produce (for ALL your Valentine's) and didn't require anything more complicated than a cutter, score tool, bone folder, and adhesive.  I really LOVE my Martha Stewart Scoreboard (try it the next time you visit us at Scrappn' Savvy) but you can create this pizza style treat box with just a ruler and a stylus or bone folder.


      ©     Score your 6” x 11” print or cardstock at 1”, 5”, 6” and 10”.
©   Turn your paper and score the 6” side at 1” and 5”.
©   Cut slits up to the 1” and 5” score line and create 1” x 1” flaps.


©   Use your red tacky tape on the flaps.
©   Use your bone folder to create nice crisp folds.
©   Remove tape and line up the corners.
©   Decorate as desired (I LOVE the smaller prints on the 6” pads and the prints with 4 quarters) and the tiny tags and stamps. 
©   You might want to add a covered chipboard bottom if you have a heavier treat.
©   Fill with cookies, candy, and other treats. 
©   Enjoy!

Here I am in mass produce mode - only 15 more to go. I think my grandson's class will love these filled with heart shaped cookies. Perfect addition to the other things I have picked out for their treat bags. Happy Hopping!!!


Now continue on with the hop and visit the next person in line! Once you have visited everyone's blog and left a comment, be sure to return to the Scrappn' Savvy blog and leave a comment that you have finished the hop!

    These treat boxes look awesome - love the heart border you put on the one, and the tulle is a lovely touch. I've made origami boxes before, but these are bigger - thanks for the measurements!
