Valentine 2-4-6-8 Oldie But Goody!!!

Hi Everyone,

Good golly I’ve been slammed with activities and feel so bad that I haven’t posted in a bit again. Just when I think my calendar is clear for a day or two something happens!

Anyway I stamped with the Pace Center for Girls again yesterday and we made a card and were supposed to make this  Valentine Treat.

….I forgot the set ups so we had to improvise. I will show that another day. For today it’s a 2-4-6-8 box and a tutorial.


This is such a cute-easy and fast treat holder to make with just 1/2 sheet of cardstock.


using your scoring tool score at 2-4-6-8


Turn paper and score at 1 1/2


Cut up to the 1 1/2 score line at the 2-4-6-8 scores


Random stamp your images


I used two heart from Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set


Add Sticky Strip to the inside 1/2 tab


Peel Liner off



An easy way to line it up without messing up is to fold the tab in and fold half of what’s left over.


Form into box


Fold 1 1/2 tabs in


Add sticky strip to this last tab and close (I forgot that picture)


Pinch the side in a bit as shown


Now cut “V’s” or notches on both sides


That is where you will tie your ribbon and you are done. Just don’t forget to add the treats! hehe

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed this little “Oldie but Goody” Tutorial.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!!! If you need a cute little treat holder or holder’s for your kids, co-workers or whatever this is by far the easiest and fastest you’ll get. I did ten of these in about 20 minutes. So have fun with it.

Till next time……
