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.
