Follow along with the "Steam Punkin" Stitch Bits blog post and make this super easy treat holder with pretty Riley Blake fabrics and byAnnie's Soft and Stable. I decorated my box sides with Ho Ho Hey holiday applique designs but you can use any suitable designs in your stash.
When I made this box I decided to experiment with fusible web beneath the fabric to make the box even sturdier. I ironed a piece of fusible web to my box side fabric, hooped it with the release paper intact and floated an additional layer of soft tear-away under the hoop before I began my appliques. I fused my appliques to the background fabric, just like I normally would because the release paper protected that area underneath. Once the applique was finished I removed the soft tear-away and the release paper.
This box needed a different handle, something more festive than a wire one like I used for the Steam Punkin box. Ribbon covered packing strap worked perfectly! I just zigzagged two pieces of 5/8" ribbon together along the edges and then slipped a piece of packing strap in between the layers.
Ho Ho Ho, y'all - make a box - give a grin and have a wonderful day!
