I began today’s project making a treat box from the Little Treat Box Dies. Of course after the box, I decided it needed a matching card. So I have a two for one to share with you today.
I will begin with the Treat Box. It is die cut using the Little Treats Dies and Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper. I wanted to use this paper because it is too pretty to put away now that the Fall season is about gone. The Little Treat Die is so simple to make a box with. It is one piece that is pre-scored and simply folds into place.
For the Treat box and the card, I stamped a tree from the Plaid Tidings stamp set. I used Cinnamon Cider Ink on Mint Macaroon card stock. For the box, I stamped two trees and folded them down the center. They were then glued together and then to Gold Foil label and onto the box. All of the trees have been touched up with Wink of Stella to give them a bit of frosty looking shine.
For the card, I used one stamped tree with the same Gold Foil label. The label is the Everyday Label Punch. I wanted as much of the pretty DSP to show as possible so I played around with the layout of the tree and the sentiment. I finally decided on this vertical layout. I used the Metallic Edge Ribbon as the anchor. The gold edging matches the gold in the DSP. And the ribbon would work on both the card and the box.
The sentiment is from the Merry Hello stamp set. I cut the “A Merry Hello” and the Gold Foil layer using the Layering Circles. For the final Gold touch, I added some of the Gold Gilded Gems.
The card layers are 4 1/4 X 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2. The Gold Foil layer is 4 X 5 1/4, and the DSP layer is 3 7/8 X 5 3/8.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you like this little duo and will give the Little Treat Box a try. They are the best yet, in my opinion, of the treat holder dies!
