Mitten "Sleigh" Candy Treat Box

I hope you've enjoyed the last three posts as we walked through the projects from my December class. It's time for the final project and it's a fun one for holiday treats - a mitten "sleigh" candy box. You will see these on my craft fair table next year. :)
I was so excited when this came together because it's just super fun! Cut four mittens - two from each side of the onyx polka dot cardstock. Glue together. (you can skip this step if you use double-sided cardstock - fyi - the a muse studio cardstock is double-sided but the inside is vanilla so you can write on it if making a card). Use the small snowflake die and cut two vanilla snowflakes. *I'd wait until you assembled the mittten and then add the snowflakes so they don't get "beat up" during assembly. I used one glue dot in the center.
Cut a 3 X 3.25 in piece of cardstock and score 1" from the edge on each side. Cut the cardstock as indicated in the graphic. Fold and glue the "flaps" to make a box.
Attach the 1" side of the box to each mitten but not all the way to the bottom of the mitten. Tie on some baker's twine and add some Andes Peppermint Crunch - or your favorite small snack or note or maybe even quarters and you're done.
What do you think? I just got the large mitten die from a muse so I can't wait to make a larger version of this same project. Good times ahead!

All products used are a muse studio and can be purchased anytime at

Have a wonderfully creative day!
