MCT Sneak Peek #4

by Veronica

Who doesn't love a little treat now and again? I'm still learning about the whole "little" and "now and again" part... but I sure do love treats!

Today's Sneak Peek features the new Bubblegum Treat Box. This die is PERFECT for whipping up sweet favors for a shower, goodies for your kids' classes or just a little something to show someone you love them. I like to surprise the Hubs with little treats and cards for each day of Valentine's week, so this little box will be one of his goodies.

After cutting out the treat box, I stamped the diagonal lines (from MCT's Build a Banner Kit) using Versamark all over. Then, using my craft knife, I cut out the rectangle on the front (using the dashed lines as guides) to make my window. I adhered a piece of transparency behind the window so the goodies don't fall out.

I closed one of the sides with the red satin ribbon (SU!), filled the box with Hershey Kisses and tissue paper and then closed the other side with the ribbon. The "XOXO" (MCT's 100% Sweetness) is stamped in red on the new layer die from Teeny Tags (available tomorrow). I glued a pink Swarovski crystal to cover the hole on the tag (where you would normally thread ribbon or add a brad/eyelet) and made the faux-stitching with my pink marker.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

  33. A clever idea to make a window box out of this die! Your husband will love it for sure. The versamark stamping looks great too. I also like the crystal on the Teeny Tag. I think I must have both of these sets. Wonderful job!
