Valentine's day ideas - No.5


Another frustrating day with my internet connection dying, but I do just want to quickly share another Valentine's project with you before it goes again!

It's a little treat box with handle.

Close up of the front of the box
 I used the "Poppy Parade" & "First Edition" Speciality DSP combination that I think looks great.

I put in lots of lovely "Love Heart" sweeties, well, what else would you put in a Valentine's treat box?? I know, I know, diamonds would be better, but I did add a rhinestone jewel to the heart, unfortunately that's the best I can do.   

Side view with heat embossed large heart.
I added two sizes of heart on this project and used the "Heart to Heart" punch and the "Full Heart" punches.  I used VersaMark ink to stamp on the floral image from the "Clearly for You" stamp set and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.

As you can see from the above picture, the box is quite roomy inside, so you can be quite generous with the amount of treats you put inside.

Hope you like it, remember, if you would like to learn how to make a treat box like this or any of the projects that I share whilst staying in the comfort of your own home, then get in contact and arrange a workshop for you and your friends, who knows what you could find yourself creating!

Take care and hopefully chat again tomorrow ~ Internet willing    xx
