Treat Box

Happy Tuesday!

Still a rainy yucky week here, but it's suppose to be all worth it later in the week when it hits 70 degrees! Here's hoping! And maybe all the rain will help green up the grass and force the buds on the trees. I hope it's nice and sunny where ever you are today.

I have a special project to share with you today. The card on top is actually one I've shown you already, that I made for a Just Magnolia challenge a couple weeks ago. I put the card aside knowing just what I wanted to do with it. And today I have the finished project to share with you.

I created this sweet little treat box with drawers filled with candy for my darling niece Olivia. She loves to get mail and so I'm hoping this will arrive to her in one piece and that the draws of candy will be a nice little surprise for her.

I created the box and drawers with the instructions found here on Kirsten's Blogg. I used some cardboard from a mailing box for the top and bottom of the box. I've covered them with with 6 x 6 brown textured card stock. I made the drawers with more brown card stock and then decorated them with blush card stock and designer paper. The drawer pulls are pearl brads and then the other panels have been embellished with flowers to match the ones on the cards. When I had the box finished, I filled the drawers with candy and then adhered the easel card to the top.

This project also fits the challenge at:
Cupcake Craft: Easter with Chocolate

If you have time to make one of these treat boxes, you really should! So fun and easy and makes a really nice little gift. Wish I could see the look on Livvy's face when she gets it, but she's in New York...Happy Easter Livvy!

Hope you have a great day! I'm off to run errands and clean the house up a bit. Hope to see you again tomorrow!

Happy Stamping,
