 Here's a book treat box I made using Wishing You a Happy Easter
I started with 2 pieces of water color paper measuring 4x6 and 2 pieces at 5x6. The watercolor paper is just sturdier and takes the inked edges well. :o) 
Score the long sides on all four papers every 1/2 inch. 
Accordion fold all the scored lines and ink the edges. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink for a soft, vintage look. 
Weave the frame together by sliding the folds into each other and glue the ends-use clips to hold it together while the glue dries. 

For the cover, I used water color paper again measuring 9 1/2 x 5 1/4 and score at 4 1/4 and
 5 1/4.  Inked the edges again with Vintage Photo Distress Ink  and cut my DP and Cardstock for the panels 1/8th smaller. 
Using 2 Layered tag by Lizzie Mayne for my base, I then inked  Wishing You a Happy Easter Sentiment in Memento Bahama Blue.
Finished with Flowers, Ribbon and Lace from stash. 
  
Of course, the treat box needed some treats!!
I used the same DP from the outside cover  and added 4 Floral Easter Eggs by Sophie Gallo die cuts using my Curio.  

And here's the back cover
