Stampin’ Up! offers a variety of little boxes that are very sturdy and easily decorated. Today I am sharing the latest box. It is the Love You Always Treat Box. To show off the box, I am pairing it with the ever cute little snail from Snailed It.
I think this would be a great little box for a hostess gift, to a friend, a just because, etc. These boxes are surprisingly large on the inside and hold quite a bit. Here is a view of the filled inside.
As you can see, it holds a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer, and four pieces of chocolate. You could layer a few more chocolates on top of these if you wanted. These are from Amazon and are Biscolata Minis. And they are Very Tasty!!
For decorating the box, I used the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper to wrap around the box. I just wrapped it around as tightly as I could. I then pulled it off and creased the folds I had made with my fingers. Just be sure to leave at least 1/2″ of overlap. You can see from the picture that the band stays on the top of the box. The added benefit of a Matchbox type box!
For the top snail section, I stamped everything using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored all with Stampin’ Blends. I did not stamp the snail on the White layer. It is stamped on a scrap piece and die cut. To be different, I used my Paper Snips and cut off the packages that sit on top of his shell. After coloring with the Stampin’ Blends, I layered the snail with dimensionals onto the other piece.
To replace the packages on the snail, I stamped the postage stamp “Happy Mail” on some scrap paper and cut out the envelope. I colored it and added it to the snail’s shell as an unexpected gift.
Thank you for stopping in today! I greatly appreciate it.
