As Seen on TV: Back to School Teacher Treat 2-4-6 Box with Thoughtful Branches

Back to school means new teachers to spoil! Today, I did a Creative Corner segment on ciLiving to share this 2-4-6 gift box for our new teachers. (For those of you who live outside of Central Illinois (ci), ciLiving is our CBS affiliate afternoon talk show that shares human interest and community stories.)
The 2-4-6 box is super easy to make plus it reminds me of that old cheer "2-4-6-8 who do we appreciate?" And we definitely appreciate our teachers!

You'll need a half sheet of cardstock (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") to make this box. This box is easy enough to make up just a few or a whole lot for small gifts or party favors. It would be perfect for a wedding, baby shower, birthday party, or holiday. My favorite part is the coordinating designer paper (1" x 3" wrap around the chocolate nuggets to go inside the box.

Watch my Creative Corner segment on ciLiving here.
  1. Using the Scoring Blade on your Stampin' Trimmer, score the cardstock at 2”, 4”, 6”, and 8”.
  2. Turn the cardstock lengthwise and score once more at 2".
  3. Cut the score lines on the shorter end up to the 2" score line you made in step 1. These flaps will become the bottom of your container. (You can completely cut off the small flap on the end.)
  4. Put Tear & Tape adhesive on the side flap and 3 of the 4 bottom flaps and assemble the box.

That was a great video and the hosts are so supportive and fun! Loved how she "danced" the DSP across the table.

Great Job Julie!
