Every Friday our little tribe of four celebrates Fun Friday by eating out (although, I must admit that we have been celebrating more of a Fun Summer, if you get my drift). Anywaaay… last Fun Friday we went to one of our usual haunts and even though we’ve been there way too many times for me to be proud to admit, I noticed that they had the most adorable take out/ snack containers, and right there and then, mid-bite of something greasy and yummy, a DIY was born – treat boxes! Wouldn’t these little boat-shaped sweeties be awesome to serve snacks and treats? They can be great to store little crafty bits and pieces too! Let’s jump in, yes?

Step 3: Once I deleted the cut corners, I resized my shape, then added the slits and fold lines using the Line and and Line Style tools
