Dog Bone Treat Box

Hello crafty friends.  Did you know today is National Dog Biscuit Day?  Seriously, it's a real thing!  Of course, I'll use any excuse to take a wacky holiday and make something fun.  Case in point, these adorable pillow boxes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  I'm featuring the new 
E-Z Runner® Petite and pairing them with a cool scrapbook paper collection from Jillibean Soup.  I'm also getting techie with my Cricut Explore.  Scroll down for more.

If you like to use svg or cut files, you can probably find a free template or template for purchase for pillow boxes.  I used my Cricut Explore and the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge in design space, resizing it to approximately 6.7"x 6.758"  This allowed me a wide enough space to insert a large Milkbone Dog biscuit inside.  Before cutting my pillow boxes, I grabbed another image from the Playful Pups Cricut cartridge and imposed it onto one side of my pillow box.  Initially I sized it to approximately 4" but after running a test cut, that was too large, so I resized it to 3".  This size was more appropriate and didn't leave large gaps of space after placing my dog bone inside.  The 3" size was more compact.  After all, you only need a peek of the bone inside, right?  





Please note that the Playful Pups dog bone image has 4 different graphic parts.  I chose the 4th graphic and hid the other parts of the file.  Once everything was lined as I wanted it, I chose "select all", then "attach".  Next step?  Cut. Worked like a charm!  I also love that this Cricut cut file also has score marks which allows me to use my score tool, digitally.  It's a technological marvel!  To finish off my pillow boxes, I adhered acetate sheets from Hero Arts on the inside.  One 3 x 4.75 inch sheet was cut in half to work with 2 boxes and trimmed to fit the dimensions inside my box, before sealing with adhesive. Keep in mind, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L has the most extensive line of adhesive products.  When working with a paper box, there is a lot of "pull" from many directions.  We've had crazy weather here in the South with relentless rain, for weeks.  I've noticed in this super damp weather that sometimes I need a stronger adhesive.  If you notice this is the case where you live, even in snowy climates, try something a little stronger, like the Extreme Double Sided Tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  Just a tip!  I've noticed crazy weather can affect my papercrafting.  Maybe you have too!




Ok, enough tech talk.  Although, if you have any questions, I'm happy to answer them!  I hope you will hop on over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog and check out the rest of my project with additional, detailed photos.  I appreciate you stopping in and if you're interested in any of the products that I've used today, I have convenient affiliate shopping links for you below.
