Timeless Tuesday ~ Treat Time!

Howdy everyone!  Welcome to another fabulous Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes.  This week's challenge, FTTC190, is brought you by the lovely Broni!  Broni wants us to create a card or project with a a treat as our focus.

So for this week I decided to make not just one treat box but TWO!

Treat Box with a View
 

I began by building my mini box (2 3/4 high, 1 1/4 width, 1 1/4 depth).  I decorated it with BasicGrey "Aspen Frost" 6x6 papers.  To cover my window, I used Flourishes Clear Cover Cardstock.  This will allow me to fill the box and for my recipient to see what the box contains.

My images include stamps from the "Sweets of the Season" stamp collection and the retired stamp set, "A Gift For You".

My little treat box even has a little pull out tag!  I used Memento "Rich Cocoa" ink for all my stamping and Ranger's "Walnut Stain" Distress Ink for all of my distressed edges.

And for my next treat box... do any of you Canadian's see a resemble to a box from one of your favourite coffee and donut places?!?  Yup... it's a miniature Timbit box from Tim Horton's!  This box is only 3 3/4 x 2 x 3 3/4! It would probably only hold 2 Timbits™!  LOL!  I designed and cut it out on my Klic N'Kut machine.

I took my little box and decorated it again with some BasicGrey "Aspen Frost" 6x6 papers and stamped images from the "Sweets of the Season" stamp set.

Got Sweets?

Here it is open to be filled some yummy treats for the holiday season!





I used the following Copic Collections in both my box creations today...

Ally, these are SOOOOOOO CUTE! I see a CASE coming on and fast - I love, love, love the way you were able to tuck the tag to the top of the box - ingenious!

You are amazing! These are awesome projects! I love the whimsical papers...and it cracks me up that you used a mini Tim Bit box! Too Canadian! :)

Greta said...

Oh my goodness! I'm in awe of your creativity here--love your projects! The pull out tag with the box is just ingenious! Love how these let the beautiful papers show--not overly "cluttered" as some things look to me.
