I love when Stampin’ Up! release dies that make cute little boxes such as the new Little Treat Box dies that are available. They are great when you are struggling to bring a box together for a project and mean you don’t have to work out the measurements before making it. This cute die is meant for a small treat, perhaps a small treat bar or some biscuits?
The treat box size is quite narrow, so does limit the treats that go inside it – however, I adapted mine to have two slots, so double the treats!! Who could say no to that?
To make the project does require two sheets of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, but it’s well worth it in my opinion. I chose to make mine from the Regals paper stack, but this could be very easily adapted to suit any occasion. A Christmas Designer Series Paper stack would be perfect with a few stocking filler treats inside – perhaps some chocolate coins?
This project means that there is only one left of my Birthday Party Live Event, I’ll be sad to see it end…
How amazing is the ‘Nothing’s Better Than’ stamp set? You may not like all three feature items in it, but at least one of them will be a vice, mine is chocolate (and sometimes cocktails!). A couple of years ago, I made chocolate boxes for my team which included a long thin chocolate bar – a bit like a Ripple / Flake / Twirl / Time Out. I thought I’d remake these to make full use of the stamp set.
I used chocolate inspired card stock with Early Espresso and Soft Suede for my two samples, using tone on tone stamping by using the matching ink shades. These boxes could be very easily adapted to suit the coffee sachets available in supermarkets, ideal to gift to a caffeine crazy friend / family member.
I wanted to give my boxes a wrap of some sort and a contrast away from the dark shades of cards, so I added a small piece of Plush Poinsetta Vellum around the middle. Finishing off the wrap with a chocolate inspired sentiment. These are such cute boxes and easily to reproduce on larger scales. I have recently made 15 of these for my UK team, which took me no longer than an hour to complete.
