Patches of Pink Design Team Post – “Sweet Thing” Treat Box

Edit: This project was featured at Paper Playtime on February 19, 2012; Die Cuttin Divas on February 21, 2012; The Kraft Journal on February 22, 2012; and My Craft Spot on February 22, 2012.

This week at Patches of Pink, our theme is Valentine’s Day! I created this cute treat box for my husband’s Valentine’s Day gift and I had so much fun making it.

This treat box was cut from the Cricut Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge at 10.5″.

I used two pieces of acetate that I saved from a Cricut cartridge casing to line the windows and they worked perfectly.

The tag is also cut from the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge at 2″ and stamped with K Andrew’s Coffee and Tea Treats Tag Along Stamp Set.

I threaded some twine through a large, gingham button, tied a bow and adhered it to the door to create a wreath. I also added a crystal gemstone to create a doorknob.

The door, the window boxes and the flowers are all popped up on foam for added dimension. 

Finally, I used the Martha Stewart Monach Butterfly Punch to create some butterflies and accented them with Stickles.

And here is the treat box filled with my husband’s current favorite snack, Shredded Wheat. He loved it!
