Tutorial: Make a box full of treats!



Use your dies to create stencils that you can use to decorate your baking with! Jodi has a fabulous tutorial below where she shows you how you can do this too and create the boxes to put them in! Fill party favours with decorated cakes or add them as a surprise to a lunch box!  (Please note: Jodi has used some stamps only available in the US, but we’ve shared some suggestions for replacements in the supply list below!).

Crafter’s Companion Supplies:

Other Supplies: Brownies – pre-cut into 2″ squares, icing sugar, paper towel, hand held strainer,

aluminium foil and a cookie sheet

First prepare the treat box(es): Using the Sweet Treats Special Treats embossing board, emboss, cut out and assemble the gable treat box using red liner tape. Decorate the treat box using elements from the Sweet Treats Papercrafting CD.
Directions for decorating the brownies:


Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil to aid in the clean up. Place a brownie square on the foil covered cookie sheet. Using the Forget Me Not flower die, diecut the flower out of a piece of paper towel. (I tested parchment paper, cling wrap, aluminum foil and kitchen roll and found the paper towel to be the easiest to work with.)

Tip: Sandwich the die and paper towel between two clean pieces of cardstock when cutting kitchen roll to help keep it clean.

Step two: Place die-cut paper towel over brownie square. Using a hand held strainer, sprinkle powdered sugar over die-cut paper towel on brownie.

This is what it will look like before removing the paper towel.

Step 3: Gently remove the paper towel, being careful not to disrupt the design.


For the second treat box, decorate a brownie using the Bebunni Floral Hearts dies (we have suggested an alternative above) following the same steps as above.
Tip: Since these heart dies are small, you can easily place all three from the set as a group to fit within the 2″ square.

Tip: Sprinkle some extra powdered sugar around the edges of the brownies for a finishing touch.


Add a few more treats to make your box extra special! We would love to see what you make! Share your projects and cards with us on our Facebook page, tag us on Instagram (#crafterscompanion), on Pinterest (@CraftersCompUK) or on Twitter (@CraftersCompUK)!
