Sweet Treats! – A Gift Box

This week’s challenge at SUO Challenges is Sweet Treats! The challenge is to make a project – card or other paper crafted project – with sweets as a theme.  I recently found instructions on how to make this cute faceted box which holds 3 Ghiradelli chocolates.  Although it looks complicated to make, Sam Hammond Donald over at Pootles gives a great tutorial, making it not at all complicated.

This box is just the right size for other small gifts, such as jewelry.  I made a coordinating card, placed a pretty bracelet in the box, and had a nice birthday gift for a dear friend.

The box is made with the Irresistibly Yours DSP from Sale-A-Bration.  I’m so happy to see the Color Me Irresistible Speciality DSP in the new 2015-2016 catalog!  I sponged the entire paper in Soft Sky ink and followed the tutorial for the box.  The flower is from the Crazy for You Stamp set with the bottom layer punched out with the coordinating Flower Medallion punch and the other layers cut by hand.  They are attached to the lid with a retired brad.

The card is CASE’d from the Spring Occasions Catalog.  Again, I sponged the Irresistibly Yours panel in Soft Sky and layered it onto a Soft Sky base.  The sentiment and frames are from the Because You Care stamp set and stamped in Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.  The little banners are Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride.
