There are many ways to show someone that you care. Whether it’s a neighbor going through a tough time, a friend who is having a bad week, or just a friend you haven’t seen in awhile, a treat is a fun way to let them know you are thinking about them. We have a fun tutorial for you today on how to make that treat extra special.
You can customize the colors and patterns for each treat delivery! At Just Artifacts we have an endless supply of colors to mix and match to fit any mood or season: yellow to cheer someone up, pink to show some love, and blue to remind them to stay calm.
We will start with the little box. You will need:
- a square party paper plate
Cut triangles out of the four corners of plate as shown. This will make it easier to tape up the corners. It doesn’t have to be a very big triangle. You will be folding it over and taping it so it will overlap. By cutting a triangle it will be easier to tape closed.
Fold up the four sides and tape the edges to make the plate into a box. Keep the tape on the outside of the box so the inside looks clean and neat.
Next we have the napkin bow. To make the bow you will need:
Fold the napkin in thirds as shown below and tape closed. Slip the spoon into the napkin. Pinch the napkin closed down the middle. In order to make the bow lay nicely fold the napkin in a small accordion. Tie baker’s twine around the middle to keep it in place and fluff the sides. Keep the twine long enough to tie it around the plastic at the end.
Once your treat is ready, place it in your box. Wrap up the box with plastic and use the twine on your napkin bow to tie up the plastic wrap. You can also use these gift boxes as a thank you gift, teacher or neighbor gifts, party favors,
or as a congratulatory gift.
