Sweetheart Treats


Wanted to make some simple little treat boxes for Valentine's Day!  I've used the cute folded Doohickey tag and the mini's are the perfect size for them.  Tilda is colored with Distress Inks and I've added flowers, a ribbon and a lacy background piece.

Find these and more at Magnolia-licious!
MINI 3025 TILDA WITH HEART CHAIN
MINI 255 ROSE SCENT TILDA 
MINI 222 TILDA WITH APPLE
MINI 236 TILDA WITH COZY HEART
49 DH SO WRAPPED TILDA LACE FOLDED TAG
68 DH CLOVER WITH FLOWER DIES
71 DH POINSETTIA DIES 

The tag is a folded tag and cuts out in one piece!  Can take the place of a card!   It seems I tend to use the Poinsettia dies for leaves more than making Poinsettia's.  The shape is one of my favorites for leaves and comes with two dies in different sizes.
An absolute must have tool, the Scor-Buddy works great for these boxes.  The paper dimensions to make this box are 6" x 5".  Start with the 6" side and score at 3/4", 2 3/4", 3 1/2" and 5 1/2".  Turn to do the 5" side and score at 3/4" and 4 1/4".  Make cuts as shown in the picture.  I used Scor-Tape to hold the box together!  Just a note, when I was helping people with the Make and Take at CHA, I was surprised to find out how many did not realize that you can just tear the Scor-Tape.  Besides the great holding power, that is another of it's great features!!!  Sorry, my picture didn't turn out the clearest, but I think you can get the idea!
Just noticed Diana has an extra special pricing on a Scor-Buddy bundle HERE.  You can get the Scor-Buddy, Scor-Mat  AND Scor-Tape at a great price!

The background doily is a Spellbinders and I've added some seam tape ribbon and silver cording.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for all the encouraging comments!!!
Enjoy every day!
