Today I have a quick “Treat” to share with you. I have decorated another of the Love You Always Treat Boxes. These boxes are wonderful. They are on page 11 of the Mini Catalog. You get 10 of them for $9.00. They are a good size and are Food Safe! What a deal!
I paired the treat box with the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration and the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from the Mini Catalog. These all are a perfect match up.
I began my project deciding on the paper. I love this green plaid. (There is also a red plaid in the pack!) I cut the DSP to 3 3/4 wide and wrapped it around the box, creasing the corners as I went. I left enough at the end to overlap about 1/2″ . I did not adhere the paper to the box but just a tight fit and adhered to itself. Although you could adhere to the box if you wish.
The layer is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I believe this was the third largest die. I think it fits perfectly. For the stamping, I stamped off Granny Apple Green to give a softer look. I colored the leaves with Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend and the flowers with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I had to add some Rhinestones to the flowers ,and one extra, for a touch of bling!
The strawberry is stamped three times The fill color is Real Red Ink with Memento Tuxedo Black as the outline and the seeds. I like having the black seeds. I punched out all three berries using the Strawberry Builder Punch. Each berry was then folded in half long way with the color to the inside. I adhered the three together and then added them to the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I only punched one stem, folded it in half, and added it to the berry with a glue dot.
Here is a picture of the open box.
The candies are leftover Valentine treats. For me the little hearts on the wrapper could be seeds from the strawberries. And Yes, I have a good imagination, LOL!!! I punched a leaf from the Strawberry Builder Punch for each of the candies. They are adhered with just a Glue Dot.
I have made a similar box using the Snail Mail Suite of products. You can see that box decorated by clicking HERE. You can see on that link how much the box will hold. It has candy and a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer.
Sale-A-Bration is winding down. There is only a little over a week left. Just an idea…..The Sweet Strawberry Bundle along with the two pairs of Stampin’ Blends I used today, will get you to the $50.00 mark. It is not enough to get the paper I used, sadly. It is part of one of the $100.00 bundles. But it will get you one of nine other FREE items.
Thank you for stopping by today. I will share the matching card for today’s project on Monday. I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
