Welcome Home Treat Box

It's a wrap on the theme week for Stampendous' Home Sweet Home and I pulled this fun little treat box together because I just needed to get it out of my head!

I saw this gable box die at a local scrapbook store in The Dalles called Urban Paper (THE SWEETEST owner, Jill, has such a fun shop) last weekend and knowing what this week's theme was I really wanted to create a welcome home box. You know, one that you could quickly put together as a gift for a new neighbor or even someone from your own family, especially when you don't have time to run out and grab something?

It has a few houses with the lights out on it, but there is ONE that has all the lights on waiting to welcome you home. It's also sporting a popped up elevation for MariLynn's challenge on the Mix-Ability challenge this week, MIX110: Pop It Up!

Here are the instructions to create this sweet little box.


From Stampendous:
SSC1219 Family Home
STF082 Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink by Tsukineko®
CP811 Creative Palette MonoPrinting Plate
MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper

Cardstock by Wausau®
Acrylic Paints by DecoArt®
Prismacolor™ Color Pencils
Zip-Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives®
PITT Artist India Ink Black Pen by Faber-Castell®
Thin 3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®
Treat Box by Sizzix


  1. Create a box using instructions from the treat box packaging. Keep flatten.
  2. Stamp house duo from Family Home set with Onyx Black ink onto long panel side of box. 
  3. Color in larger house with black pen.
  4. Color sky with colored pencils and smooth with odorless mineral spirits or leave as is.
  5. Stamp houses onto premade monoprint paper and trim out. Separate the two houses and glue one down with foam squares, the other with liquid glue.
  6. Stamp sentiment and frame with monoprint paper scrap. Glue onto front of treat box.
  7. Fold up box and tie ribbon through top of box.
