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.....
Cut a Piece of Gingham Garden DSP 4"x 2 1/2" Score @ 1/2" and 3 3/4"
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
(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
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 )
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
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
Fill Your Birthday Treat Box and Give to
Your favorite Chocolate Lover ........
O.k. to eat a piece before you fill the bag!
