A Gift For You - Treat Box

Hello Everyone!  Today I made a treat box using the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to my Heart.  This is a quick and easy box that can be filled with many different items and used for any occasion.  This project features papers from the Chantilly paper pack as well as the Chantilly card workshop.

I started with one sheet of 12x12 Kraft cardstock for the box.  The box shape is on pg. 22 and I cut it at 11 1/4 inches.  I used the My Acrylix stamp set called Distressed Backgrounds and stamped all of the sides using my Brown Bag stamp pad.  Then I inked the edges using the same ink.  

I cut a 1/2" x 12" strip from a sheet of Lagoon paper and then cut two 4" pieces from it.  I used the Lagoon stamp pad to ink the edges of each strip and adhere them to the front and back of the box.  I also used the Lagoon ink pad to stamp the sentiment and frame.  I used the My Acrylix stamp sets Frame Flair and Enjoy!  Then, I cut three flowers from a piece of Buttercup cardstock at 2, 2 1/2, 2 3/4 inches and three green flowers from the green B&T duo sheet at 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 1 3/4 inches.

I finished the box off with sparkles, glitter paper, ribbon from the Chantilly card kit and a Foundry Binder clip.
