Cylindrical Treat Box

cylindrical_christmas

It’s not often that you see a Cylindrial box, in the almost 5 years that I have been a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! I have seen plenty of cuboid, cubes, slopey lids, hexagons, octagons etc but very rarely have I seen a cylinder.

I like to challenge myself every now and again, so decided it was time to see if I could bring one together that could be replicated dozens of times. I’m happy to say that I think I’ve achieved this and not only is today’s project a cylindrical box, it is a flush lidded cylinder box.

The treat box uses one of the larger circles from the Layering Circles dies to help form the base and the lid, with a technique shown in my video to help curve the card and stop it from kinking. The box in the video is a Halloween version, but I just love the Christmas one in the photo above too.

The below tutorial was filmed during my TFI Crafty Friday Facebook Live, in which some of the measurements I listed were for a different size box.  To make a box the same as the image above you will need to follow the measurements lower down on this post.

Please have a go at making your own and if you have instagram, please tag them with #yourfavouriteyorkshiredemo or #hullahbaloo so that I can come see them!

Enjoy!

Am I too early to be showing so much Christmas? Have any of you started your Christmas shopping yet? Or are you one of those who leave everything until Christmas Eve and do it last minute? Christmas is one of my favourite times of year, I love the lights, the glitter, the food – of course! And I absolutely LOVE gifting Christmas treats to my work colleagues, candy canes are a staple amongst those treats.

The Candy Cane paper from the Santa’s Workshop pack alongside the Candy Cane Season bundle are brilliant together. They make life easy for you and putting them together is as easy as pie. For an extra bit of glitz, I added some glimmer to mine as well as a doilie.

Let me know if you’re a fan of Christmas or if you’ve made any Christmassy projects.

Best Wishes,

Real Red Santa Sack

071018 - Real Red Santa Sack

Ho! Ho! Ho! Could I pull of being Santa? No? Ok, I’ll stop. But what I won’t stop doing is making these GORGEOUS Santa Sacks. In the Autumn / Winter Catalogue this year, the inclusion of the Santa Bags instantly made my eyes light up. They are absolutely adorable and so easy to stamp on.

I decided to change the string on mine so that I could include a co-ordinating ribbon. They are so cute when plumped up with items – a handy size for sweet treats, smellies, bath salts / bombs?

Now I’m off to make some more, I’m addicted!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
