I have a bit of an unusual, at least for me, project for you today.  From my West Coast trip I brought a friend ,who loves Ghirardelli Chocolate, a gift.  Of course I had to make a decorative box to hold it.  This is definitely not my specialty!!  But I measured and winged it, and here are the results.


Treat Time, 146626



I did used retired DSP.  I wanted a thicker paper for my gift box.  There are some great new ones, I just did not have a large enough piece.  I have been really using my DSP lately!    And here is the inside of the box.




I used Julie DiMatteo’s favorite mini magnets as the main closure.  I did add a decorative slide off band as well.  In doing so, I fell in love with this stamp set, Treat Time !  Oh My, who would not LOVE to get a card or gift with the sentiment “It’s A Real Treat Being Friends With You”?  I think that is my new favorite sentiment.
