The Christmas tree treat boxes by Shannon Allen, were easy, once I figured out how to assemble them. There were no instructions and I started to wonder if I’m too stupid for paper crafting. When I noticed the score lines, things fell into place. I think my boxes turned out pretty cute. The chances of me making treat boxes for my coworkers is zero, so this was just a fun exercise.
This one might be good for children. Just cut the pieces with your machine, do a demo, and then pass it to the kids. Of course, your probably don’t want to have piles of candy available to a room full of children.
This one had me confused, but I finally figured it out. My first mistake was using liquid glue. I tried again with hot glue (and my new tools). It got better, but it wasn’t good.
The hot glue tools
I ordered the hot glue tool set from an Etsy shop called Hot Glue Gun Helpers. I’m not an affiliate, but I do recommend this product. I still need to work on my glue gun technique, but I’m on my way!
Now there’s no excuse for getting back to the flower bouquet project.
