A Treat Box for Sweets from Daniela

I'm Daniela, and I'm going to show you a sweet box I made for treats with Technique Tuesday stamps.

The stamps I used to make this box were from Love Always Wins by Ali Edwards and Verbose.

I also used: patterned paper; a punch; ink; adhesive; twine; buttons; seam binding; a Silhouette Cameo diecutting machine; a bracket flap box; decorative edge scissors; marshmallows; chocolate and sprinkles.

I started out by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut a bracket flap box.

Then I:

1. Stamped the box with the Verbose stamp set and adhered punched paper strips to it.

2. Adhered the box together.

Easy Shaker Boxes with Ashley

Hi everyone!

It's Ashley, and I have a fun and easy project to share with you today: a Shaker Box.

Here's how I made it:

1. Stamped the sentiment from Love Always Wins by Ali Edwards onto cardstock and mounted it onto a square card.


2. Adhered rhinestones to the card.

3. Placed black foam tape all around the card.

3. Created heart confetti with a punch. Then I just set it on the sentiment.

4. Trimmed a transparency to fit over the top of the sentiment and right onto the foam tape.

And there you have it.

See you again soon!
