Looking for a quick way to make an elegant Valentine treat? Well, look no further. Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are perfect! (You get 16 boxes for only $7.50!!!) I love them because you can see what’s inside and they’re just the right size for cute little treat.
I decided to fill my box with silver chocolates and stick with a white and silver color scheme.
The first thing I did was create a belly band using Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. This acetate is really cool because it’s silver on one side and gold and the other. I cut a strip 2″ wide by slightly larger than 8″ (to accomodate wrapping around the 2″ x 2″ box) and removed the plastic film. Then, I scored the acetate every 2 inches. I did not adhere the belly band together; instead I just simply used the Sale-A-Bration Silver 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon to hold the acetate closed around the box.
Next, I adhered one of the new Lace Doilies from the Occasions Catalog. These are also two-toned, with white on one side and vanilla on the other! Very cool!!!
Afterwards, I used the Sweet and Sassy Framelits to cut 5 of the smallest layering hearts out of Silver Foil. I scored each in the middle and adhered them together at the fold. It looked a little unfinished, so I added a little string of pearls to the top heart.
To jazz up the bow on the side, I added a few elements. First, I tied a simple bow around some Silver Sequin Trim, then I tucked the long ends back under the bow to make an additional loop on both sides. I used some unraveled White Thick Baker’s Twine to tie everything off. It just adds a little extra pizzazz.
