"Go Fish" Treat/Gift Card Box



Guys Deserve Goodies too, Right?
Here is a NEW Treat Box I designed for all the
Guys in Your Life. 
It easily fits several Gift cards, treats ( gummy worms ) and space for
for a special lure or two!

I think I'm already " Hooked" on making this container because
I know I can fill it with so many goodies. I'm sure I will be making
more in some additional themes for the Holidays....please stay tuned!
I feel a 3-D obsession coming on....

So what colors did I use? The Treat Box base is made using Night of Navy card stock , the picture panel is Canjun Craze and the watery panels are Soft Sky.

By The Tide Clear-Mount Stamp Set

I love the versatility of the "BY THE TIDE" stamp set and have found myself making more projects than I thought I might (see links below). There are 7 stamps in all, so perfect for creating a print tray feel for the front on the box. This time I used just portions of 3 of the images. It's pretty impossible to mess up your image when you are only stamping part of it. I love that! When I stamped the Night of Navy ink on the Soft sky card stock it created kind of an illusion of water....seemed like a perfect combo!



To give the box a rugged outdoor feel I decided to make a topper from the NEW HOLIDAY CATALOG Burlap Ribbon. It's 1 1/4" wide so there is enough width to fold it over. My bone folder came in handy to help crease it in half. Don't you love the texture?

As for the Little banner it was easy to make with white card stock, the Ticket Duo Builder Punch, a Canjun Craze marker and Linen Thread. The cool thing is that I was able to write my own sentiment, so the idea is totally customizable and the little ticket punches allow space for several letters.

Now Stampin'Up doesn't sell them individually anymore. but you can Hold the cute little banner in place with Mini Clothes pins, no glue required. 
You can however find 10 of the cute little pins in the Tag A Bag Accessory Kit  found HERE
