Hi All! It's time for another Rose Blossom Garden Challenge! Okay, before you think I can't spell, I know that Treat Box doesn't start with "G,"but if you're playing around with the Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge, you'll find the cutest little treat box on the "G" key....SEE:
I've made this little box before and used it as a teachers' gift. (You can see that project here.) Nonetheless, I thought it was worth doing again, because some people are a bit daunted by it. The thing I love about this box is that the top and box are one piece. It's a clever fold!
I made these treat boxes for some girlfriends of mine that came into town to craft and catch up. The tags, which are also cut from the "G" key, double as little ornaments that have the date and a little message on the back. The bows, by the way, are from the same key. That's right, so much cuteness from one little key!
I wanted this to be a gift that kept on giving, so I added a couple of tags that could be used as ornaments. I cut the pieces at 3 inches from the Dream Pop cardstock and patterned paper. I added a 1 1/4-inch circle to the middle and popped it up with dimensional adhesive. I then stamped the sentiment, which is from the "4 my friend" stamp set, on White Daisy cardstock using Lagoon and Whisper exclusive inks. I fussy cut the sentiment with my craft knife so that it wouldn't cover much of the background and popped it up with dimensional adhesive. I added some bakers twine for the hanger and a little message commemorating our crafty get together on the back. I tied a knot in the bakers twine and tucked it into the top of the lid.
Here are the boxes and their ornaments again:
I hope you enjoyed this little project. Don't be intimidated by that little box, it gives you a lot of bang for you buck!
Don't forget to play along in the Rose Blossom Garden! I can't wait to see what you come up with using the "G" key on the Artiste Cricut cartridge!
