Sending Love Treat Box

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here sharing my Sending Love Treat Box for the Design Team of Paper Nest Dolls using Emma with Heart Balloon.

Time for something a little different than a card! Do you give your Sweetie treats for Valentine’s Day? If you do, you might like to make a treat box for them.

Isn’t the digital stamp Emma with Heart Balloon so sweet! Perfect for my Valentine Treat Box! I coloured her with my Copic Markers and added Glossy Accents to her balloons and Stardust Stickles to the heart on her top.

For my box, I used a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box from Stampin’ Up! This made a perfect box for holding treats and at the same time easy to assemble. I had fun decorating my box with the super cute Lovebugs paper by Doodlebug! Of course, I had to cover all sides of my box with it including the back!

On the paper, there are some sweet envelopes, so I used a die to cut some mini envelopes in different papers and placed felt heart stickers emerging from them, like my love was being sent in the mail! I place one on the cover and two inside.

For a Valentine box, you need lots of hearts and that is where the doily heart die with the love die cut on it and the cluster of hearts die came in handy. For my belly band, I used ribbon that has Happy Valentine’s Day on it, and I tied into a pretty bow.

Of course, you have to decorate the inside of the box and place lots of treats in it! Again, I used the Lovebugs paper and cut one of the tags out and popped it up on more of the cute paper! Love the sentiment:
“Loved you yesterday
love you still
always have
always will”

My last two envelopes with the hearts flank the sentiment.

Some finishing touches of rhinestones and Clear Wink of Stella on the hearts on the spine add a bit of sparkle to my project.
