Valentine's Treat Holder - One Sheet Box

This Valentine's Treat Holder was created after seeing the One Sheet Box tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers.  I began with a 9" x 12" piece of drawing paper.  I created some heart stencils using a hot glue gun and then sponged the stencils all over the paper using Rose Red ink.  I cut the paper down to 8-1/2" x 11" and followed the One Sheet Box tutorial to create the treat holder.  I cut down the excess strip of sponged drawing paper to add a bit of interest on the front of the box and then added a sponged tag and some hearts.  So simple!  You could easily create this box with children's art and scribbles!  Have fun!!!!  Happy Valentine's Day!  Let's spread some love!!!! :)

Valentine's Treat Holder - Flat Backed Treat Box

Today's Valentine's Treat Holder was made using the Flat Backed Treat Box tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers.  I LOVE this little box!  This box can hold small candies, lip balm, jewelry and all kinds of little trinkets.  I incorporated some retired papers and stamps and am thrilled with how this little box turned out!  I hope you like it :)

Valentine's Treat Holder - Pentagon Treat Tube

Valentine's Day is around the corner and I decided to put together some treat holders to share with you.  This first design began with a Pentagon Treat Tube - a tutorial that I found on Splitcoast Stampers.  I added the option of placing a removable top on the tube so that the tube can be opened and closed and reused.  I am committed to using my craft stash so I inked up some retired Stampin' Up! stamps and incorporated some Prima Flowers that I have had for ages.  What retired stamps and stash items can you put to use this week????
