Valentine Treat Box

Morning,

Hope your Thursday is off to a great start. It's only 9:30ish here and I've gone to the vet, taken my son to the dentist, dropped him off at school, and gone to the Post Office! Definitely feeling very productive today, hopefully I can get some stamping projects finished up too!

The project I'm sharing today is one I made for my son's teacher for Valentine's Day. It's a candy treat box. I feel like all I've been making this week is Valentine stuff, but it's fun. I got this idea from Jeanette's blog and then used the tutorial on SCS. It looks much harder than it really is and now that I've made one, I will make another one! Trust me, if I can make this, so can you! :)

I used BasicGrey papers and a Whiff of Joy image to decorate this box. The image is colored with Copics and the wings have been dusted with a glitter glue and extra glitter. I used grosgrain ribbon, a hat pin and beads, prima flowers, and some sticker rhinestones to finish off this box. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

This is a side view so you can see better how the whole box looks finished. The box itself is just a piece of printed paper and the cover is a piece of a cereal box covered with matching printed paper. The ribbon is used to hold the cover closed. I filled the box with Hershey Kisses, a nice little chocolate treat!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day. I'm off now to bake some cupcakes for my son's Valentine's party tomorrow!

Happy Stamping! :)
