Gingham Garden & Birthday Chalk Board Treat Box

What a Better Way to say Happy Birthday, then a Treat Box 
filled with a bag full of Little Chocolate Nuggets and
a "LABEL LOVE" Happy Birthday to You

Today I mixed up some favorites.....
Gingham Garden Designer Paper, Strawberry Slush card stock, the Chalkboard Technique, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and a Cute Cello Bag Ribbon Tie. ( Paper is from the NEW Catalog products available May 31st )

You can make one yourself, here's how.....

Step. 1
Cut a Piece of Gingham Garden DSP  4"x 2 1/2"    Score @ 1/2" and 3 3/4"

Step. 2

Fold over top and bottom edges.
Use snail adhesive to hold into place.

Step 3. Embossing the Sentiment

     Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock that will be 
     large enough to be able to stamp the HAPPY
     BIRTHDAY sentiment from the LABEL LOVE 
     stamp set
     (available in Spanish and French also)

        Use an Embossing Buddy and Dust your card 
      stock to prevent unwanted embossing powder 
      going in places you don't want.

         Stamp your sentiment into the clear ink 

      VERSAMARK PAD and stamp onto your paper. 
      You will barely be able to see the sentiment.
      It will look shiny.

    Sprinkle White Embossing Powder all over the
    embossed image.

     Shake off excess that does not stick to the ink          

        Using an Embossing Gun, heat up the sentiment
        until it turns shiny.

Step.4  Creating a Chalkboard Effect

         Punch the image using the 1 3/4" 
         Scallop Circle punch.

 Ink the outside edges of the punched
 image with White Craft Ink.
 (oops, I should have shown you the
 punched piece, sorry )

Step 5.

          Cut a piece of DAFFODIL DELIGHT card stock
          3" x 2 1/2".

          Adhere Folded Designer Paper from Step. 2
          on top of the Daffodil piece slightly offset at 
          an angle.


Step. 6   Making the BOX

 Cut a Piece of Strawberry Slush card stock
 8 1/2" x 5", Score on the 8 1/2" side at 
 3 3/4" and 4 3/4".

           Flip card stock to the 5" side and score
           @ 1" and 4".

           Run each side of the box through the 
           Big Shot machine using the Perfect Polka
           Dots Embossing Folder.

    Cut on score lines and attach Red Sticky
    Strip adhesive to top and bottom sections
    of one side.

    Remove adhesive film and fold large tabs
    on the right side over the small tabs in 
    the middle and large tabs on the left will
    be on the outside when folded over the
                                        other large tabs. 
                                        TIP** Try folding it first without the adhesive

Step. 7  Attaching the sentiment panel

    Place Dimensionals on the backs of the 
    2 panels for the sentiment.

    Adhere the rectangle panel to the box base.



           Adhere Chalk board sentiment to rectangle 
           pieces in making sure the sentiment is parallel 
           with the bottom of the box.

Step. 8   Treat Bag

             Fill a 4" x 6" Cellophane Bag with Designer
             Paper wrapped Nuggets as seen HERE
             or your favor candy.
             Tie with Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain
             Ribbon. Make a 3 loops of Island Indigo
             Bakers Twine ( I do this around the palm
             of my hand). Place it in the middle of the 
             tied grosgrain. 

       Fill Your Birthday Treat Box and Give to 
       Your  favorite Chocolate Lover  ........
        O.k.  to eat a piece before you fill the bag!
