This card was inspired by 'Stamp With Heather' on You Tube. You can view the video if you click here. I wanted to use the Botanical Blooms (113812) stamp set for an upcoming Stamp Camp. All the projects we will be creating will be by using Sale-A-Bration stamp sets. This Tea Party DSP (113992) is so 'Spring-Like'...hard to believe that 'Spring' is right around the corner!! Oh...I can not wait...right now typing this entry...I am in the basement...FREEZING with a space heater at my feet! to get warm and stamp some more! Thanks for stopping in~Erin

Valentine's Treat Box

This is the Valentine's Treat Box my customer's made at my January 30th Stamp Camp. It holds up to 2 Peppermint Patties inside (one on top of each other). I only had one inside because we used scalloped pieces to create a 'sandwich' over shredded Riding Hood Red CS. See directions listed below. Contact me if you have any questions!
Directions: Box Base- Use a Close to Cocoa piece of CS that is 4"x4". Score at 1" on all 4 sides and cut in at 1" mark on opposite sections to create box sides. Box Top- Using a 3"x3" DSP piece of paper, score at 1/2" on all 4 sides. Before you duplicate above steps, punch hole using 1 3/8" square punch (slide card stock all the way inside punch and center). Create same slits and assemble lid. Use a 2" square piece of acetate inside the lid to create a window...easy huh?? Have fun making your own treats for Valentine's or any other occasion. Makes a quick and easy party favor!!
