Valentine Treat Boxes

Box 1These Valentine treat boxes are just too cute and so easy to make.  The bows are made with the fantastic bow die using More Amore Designer Series Paper that is on the clearance rack.  Note the punched heart in the middle of the bow.  A small rhinestone adds a bit of bling as do the 3 rhinestones in the lower left hand corner.

Check out the next sample:

 

 

Box 2The great thing about Stampin’ Up Designer Series Paper is that 99% of it is reversible.  The bow shown on this treat box is the reverse side of the DSP used for the bow above.  The cursive “love” used on these boxes is easily die cut with the Expressions Thinlits.  I use 1 or 2 layers of waxed paper between the thinlit and the card stock, and the words almost fall out of the die.  I love this product.  Note the punched hearts used to embellish this treat box.

Let’s look at the next sample:

Box 3This treat box is the pink example.  Although still using the More Amore DSP, this pattern is much lighter.  A soft pink “love” expression was cut and 3 light pink Candy Dots embellish the box.  4 X 4 card stock matching the “love” color has been placed inside each treat box to carry the color thru to the bottom.  These boxes are a cinch to put together, and come with the window and delicate white circle.  (132146 – 6 for $4.95)

Our final sample is in Pool Party.

 

 

Box 4This final Treat Box uses the same DSP as our second sample.  By using a Pool Party heart on the bow, Pool Party cs in the bottom of the box and for the “love” expression, the blue in the DSP jumps out.  Note the red glimmer heart and the blue rhinestones embellishing the treat box.  Did you know you can use permanent markers to color your rhinestones?  They dry immediately and are much more practical than buying rhinestones in all different colors!

At our February Stamp Camp, you can choose the DSP and card stock color you want to work with.  The “love” expressions have been pre-cut in Real Red, Pretty in Pink (retired) and Pool Party.  The DSP has been pre-cut so all you have to do is put your bows together!  Even the 4 X 4 cs has been pre-cut.  There is an embellishment box for this stamp camp so you can embellish to your heart’s desire!

I hope you can make Stamp Camp on February 6 (2 – 9 PM), February 7 (2 – 9 PM) or February 8 (9 AM – 4 PM).  We are making 4 projects and the cost is $12.00.  Please contact me if you have any questions.
