Valentine Treat Box
I made this treat box for my daughter's teachers. I love how it turned out and it is perfect to use for Paper Players Theme Challenge this week. Anne Marie's theme was to create a Valentine card or 3-D item. The idea for the box is from Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie. She has a great video linked to help you make one of your own. I did a snowman themed one a few years ago and decided I wanted to do another this year. The box holds 10 Hershey Nuggets.
My colors are Pool Party, Real Red, and Blushing Bride. I used some DSP to add a layer to the top of the box and to cover the nuggets. My stamp sets were It's a Wrap Holidays, P.S. I Love You, and A Round Array. I think the first two are retired and it really is okay to mix new and old... it isn't like we don't all have stamps we already own and I don't want to feel like I can't use them... so I do! If you don't have It's a Wrap set you could easily cover those two nuggests with Whisper White cardstock and punch a heart from the Owl Builder punch to add on top. If you don't have P.S. I Love You how about stamping the Woodgrain Background stamp set on some Whisper White cardstock and then punch out a Full Heart.
Don't forget it is Sale-A-Bration! Ask me how I can help you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item for EVERY $50 you spend before tax and shipping.
