Tiny Treasure Box


 I have a really quick treasure box for you to make and give away or add to your tree. A tradition at our home is to find a tiny gift on the tree, and these cute treasure boxes could hold a small piece of jewelry, or a handmade gift certificate, etc. Maybe you could start a new tradition of your own this year.

Get your Scor-Pal and card stock and
Let’s make a box…..

For one box you will need card stock cut at 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches. Score at 7/8 inches on each side. Cut a slit from edge to score line along both long edges as shown above. Use Scor-Tape on “flaps” of short ends to make a box.

For the “Sleeve” of the matchbox, you will need a piece of card stock or Patterned paper measuring
6 x 2 3/4 inches. Score at 1”, 2 1/2”, 3 1/2”, 5'”.
Crease along score lines and glues ends together making a “sleeve”.

Slide box into sleeve. Attach an eyelet as desired, tying a knot with cording to make a hanging ornament.

You can then decorate to your hearts desire. In these examples, I attached a Spellbinders Poinsettia & Snowflakes.
Tied with a bow, these small Matchboxes would make a great gift holder for a Teacher, Postal Worker etc.

I hope you have a wonderful Holiday.
Love & Liquid Pearls,
