Fairy Treat Boxes

My cousin's daughter has a sweet tradition of maintaining a "fairy garden."

This magical spot in the garden is a place where fairies visit and leave little treats. I created these tiny treat boxes to hold special gifts in the fairy garden. They're the perfect size for candies, crafty bits, and small notes.

Instructions:
1. For each box, trim a sheet of patterned paper or cardstock to 5 inch x 5 inch. Use the scoring blade for your Fiskars trimmer to score each sheet into 8 equal sections.

2. Fold the outer corners inward, forming a box along with score lines.

3. For extra interest, use Fiskars Texture plates and Embossing tools to dry emboss cardstock before forming into the box.
