Check out How to Make an Easy Treat Box With Graphic 45 by Denise Hahn on Snapguide.  


Visit Denise Hahn's SnapGuide Tutorial

"I love to make my own party treats and favors- but I hate cutting out complicated templates. Especially when you have to make 20 or more. So I created this technique of treat box making that is super easy and just requires only straight cuts. But that is at their simplest- of course you can kick it up a notch and use some Fiskars punches to make them truly unique. These are so easy you can even put your little crafters to work! I created a Snapguide to show you how it’s done!" ~Denise H.

Now, let's see Denise' talent with a sewing machine - she's so multi-talented!

"I was so excited to get some fabric this month to play with! It was just a few remnants but enough to make this cute apron I saw on the PBS show It’s Sew Easy. And it was super easy! I had only one “make it work” moment when I did not have enough width for my ties. No problem, I just used some of the Curtain call fabric I got and made a two sided tie for the back. I think it came out so cool. I never would have thought of that, had I not had to “make it work”, so embrace those times when you don’t have enough of something- you never know how it might turn out!" -Denise H.
