I've been having some more fun with Little Golden Books! Remember the Recycled Little Golden Book Ornaments I made?

Well, my mom sent me a link to a some adorable little boxes made from Little Golden Books on a super cute blog called Vintage Street Market. Eeek! I had to try and make one or two!

Make a super cute treat box from a Little Golden Book!

Since I used some of the pages from the books I had, this was a perfect way to use the adorable book covers!

I'll show you how I made the Frosty the Snowman box.


First, cut the main image out of the cover. I tried an x-acto knife but found that scissors really worked better.


Here is Frosty all cut out!


Then I cut the back of the book cover into four equal sections to make the box. I used the back of another book for the box bottom (not pictured here).


I cut the sides of the box a little shorter that the front and back pieces and then I cut some scrapbook paper that coordinated with the Frosty image to cover the box pieces.

I used Mod Podge to adhere the papers to the book pieces.


Once I had that part done I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes through the box pieces.


Until they looked like this.


Then I used some red yarn and a blanket stitch to lace my box up!


It will look something like this now.


Then I glued Frosty to the edge of the box.


And added glitter in strategic places 😁.


Cut out the book title and glue that to the front of the box.

And here is my finished box!



I used some more Christmas themed paper to cover the back of Frosty.



And I made the Santa box from The Night Before Christmas book.


I made the box for this one smaller and I used tape to hold the box together and then covered it with paper.


Santa got a pom-pom on his hat and glitter on all his coat and hat cuffs.



You can see how small this box is here. It would be perfect for candy!


I did not cover the back of this one.


What do you think? Aren't they cute?


You can buy the boxes that Vintage Street Market made in her Etsy shop here:  Vintage Street Market She has other designs like Rudolph!!
