Love You Much Treat Box

Good Sunday to you!!! Here is the little treat box that we created at our Friday Night Stamp Club. The Top Note Die has so many possibilities!!! I used the White Cardboard that comes with our 12x12 Designer Series Papers, combined with our cardstock to keep the top and bottom a little more sturdy. I used a Stampin' Up! Glue Stick to adhere my Close to Cocoa cardstock to the cardboard BEFORE running it through the Big Shot. Much easier!

For the little box, I used 2 quarter-sheets (4-1/4"x5-1/2") of cardstock...one for top and the other for the bottom. I scored each quarter-sheet at 1". Keep in mind that when you score the 2nd sheet, score it a "little" less OR more than an inch, so that one of the boxes can fit inside the other. Clear as mud??? Let me know if you have any questions on this. I think I made 5 different boxes until I was happy with the dimensions!!

The DSP used on these projects is the Loves Me DSP from last year. I had one pack of the new Candy Lane DSP, but didn't have enough for everybody at Stamp Club. I have been using it like crazy!! So the Loves Me paper turned out great, and I had plenty of it. I punched the hearts with the Heart to Heart Punch and put Regal Rose Cardstock behind it.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
