Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek #2!

Now that Christmas is over, I want to share a
Valentine Treat Box!

I started playing with some of my new product out of the Occasions Catalog and I'm having so much fun!  It's like Christmas all over again.

Here is something different to share with you...this cute treat box.  I used the new Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
in the Occasions Catalog that comes out on January 3, 2018.

Here is the treat box (totally cased from Stamping with Amore).

Painted w-Love Treat Holder

This treat holder was quick and easy to make. 

Here are the dimensions:

Cut the cardstock at 2 1/2" x 6 3/4" and score on the 6 3/4" side at
4 1/4" and 4 3/4".
Cut two pieces of Designer Series Paper, one at 2 1/4" x 1 3/4" and
one at 4 1/8" and 2 1/4".
You will also need a scrap piece of Whisper White  for the sentiment
and punch out using the 1 3/8" circle punch.
Using Gold Foil Sheets, cut out a circle using the new Starburst Punch to add behind the sentiment. 

I used the lid from the Coffee Cups Framelits to create the top.  I also cut out a mini coffee cup using the same framelits and the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I cut the lid off of this piece and then cut a second mini coffee cup using Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.  Glue the Painted with Love mini coffee cup to the top of the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, so it looks like there is a lid on the cup.

To put everything together, I tied a piece of 1/8" Gold Ribbon around the box and made a bow.  Tape/glue your sentiment to the Gold Foil Starburst and add the mini coffee cup.  The mini coffee cup was finished off using a heart from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

There are three Merci mini candy bars in the box. 
(You can find them at your local Walmart.)

With this paper, this treat box would be great for Valentines Day, but with different paper, it could be used for many other events or holidays. 

I love the gold foil that runs through the paper.
