I made this treat box from the cover of a Little Golden Book for a friend who has an big accomplishment to celebrate next month. I based it on the second part of this tutorial with a few modifications to suit my materials and taste.
I had picked up the book at a garage sale last summer with this friend in mind and was pretty stoked when I came upon a pin linking to this tutorial.
I was able to utilize my semi-ridiculous paper stash and other tools & supplies on hand to put it all together. The forest floor plants & mushroom were cut with my Sizzix Big Shot using a Tim Holtz set of dies. The butterlfy and flowers are cut with wee punches. They’re inked with pads or markers.
All the edges of the book board are inked with a gold sharpie, as are the wood screw hold plugs used as feet. I’m not entirely certain what I am going to fill it with, but I have an idea that I plan to explore.
I kind of want to make a bunch more of these with various Little Golden Books! I think I picked up one or two Christmas LGBs so maybe I’ll do some with the some books at the tutorial.
