Love You Always Special Treat Box for The Spot #147. This week The Spot Challenge Design Team are looking forward to Valentine’s Day and have lots of amazing projects to share with you. The idea is to inspire you so you can make a special project for your loved on, but not before you share it with us!
My project makes use of the new new Love you Always Treat Boxes. These are great little boxes and come flat packed and are super easy to put together. This also makes them really quick to use if you are in need of some cute gift packaging with little notice! And trust me when I tell you this project only took a few minutes to put together.
I started by cutting a piece of the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper to size (Dimensions at the bottom of this post) and wrapped it around the box, reinforcing the folds as I went. You could use either Tear & Tape or Seal+ to stick the ends together, I deliberately didn’t stick the wrap to the box itself. This means that the recipient can remove the wrap and use the box again.
Next I did the die cutting from the Love You Always Foil, using the Sahara Sand and Rococo Rose. I die cut ‘Love’ and ‘Always’ as well as their shadows. From the scraps from die cutting the words I die cut some small flowers. I love that you can die cut 4 flowers at a time, as I used 8, that is only 2 passes through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (in this case the Mini!). The words just fit on the top of the box, leaving enough space for the flowers to be added with Mini Dimensionals. Not being a great fan of holes in the middle of flowers, I added some Champagne Rhinestones to the centre of each.
The final item to add was ‘YOU’. This is stamped using the Stamparatus for positioning. I used Sahara Sand card and stamped ‘YOU’ in Rococo Rose first. Once that was dry I stamped in Versamark and added some Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and melted it for a shiny finish. And that is my project done! Now it’s your turn!!
