Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Men deserve treats too (Sometimes 🙂 ) Yorkie Slider Box tutorial
I have done quite a few treat bags and boxes but they are usually very girly so I thought it was about time I did some for men, especially with Fathers Day coming up soon here in the UK.
I thought what better treat that says ‘for men’ than a Yorkie bar (Although girls can eat these too of course) I picked up some Yorkie’s last time I went shopping and today set to designing a box for them. I’ve seen slider boxes on pinterest a few times so thought I would give that a try, so I got my ruler out and a notebook and pen and messed about a bit and this is what I came up with.
Cut a piece of card 4 1/4″ x 5 3/4″
Score: Long side – 3/4″ Short side 3/4″, 1 3/4″, 2 1/2″ and 3 7/8″
Cut away small rectangle bottom right, then wedge all the tabs.
Add Fuse or tear & tape to the right side end panel, carefully line up and adhere to the other side
Fold in the two small tabs, then the larger of the end tabs, add Fuse or strong glue to the final tab and fold over the others, it will look like the photo below.
Cut your chosen paper to 4 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
Put the Yorkie into the box, wrap your paper round making sure the seam will be on a bottom edge. Make sure its a snug fit then carefully crease the edges.
Unwrap and gently fold your creased edges, cut a small wedge into each side of your seam.
Add glue to your seam, wrap around the box and adhere snugly.
Using a 1/8″ hole punch make a hole on the back and front of the open end.
Make your tag, for this one I used a piece of Night of Navy Card 7/8″ x 2 1/2″, and a piece of Whisper White card, 3/4″ x 2 3/8″. I added some washi tape to the White card (another sneak peek for you from the Affectionately Yours Series, isn’t it gorgeous).
Round the corners, line up as shown but dont stick together, punch hole with 1/8″ punch.
Cut about 24″ Bakers Twine (you can use ribbon if prefered) I added 3 length of Gold Metallic Thread to mine. Knot one end to keep it secure you will cut this off at the end.
Thread through the box and tag as shown.
Place the end of the Yorkie on the thread and slide both the Yorkie and thread into the box, Tie across the top to secure and trim the threads to about 2 – 3 inches. Decorate as required. (I added some more washi tape round the bottom, added a few stars with Wink of Stella on, and added a congrats sentiment).
Hold the box and pull on the thread to pull the Yorkie out of the box.
The happy birthday box was made to match the card I made for Quick Card Thursday, it would make a nice little gift to give with the card.
I hope my instructions make sense, if you have any problems with them please let me know and I will do my best to help.
