2-5-7-10 Treat Box


Happy Friday the 13th!  For the most part I pre-schedule all of my posts, and we have been really sick in my house.  Every single one of us has had the stomach flu along with a few of the kids having ear infections and my middle DD having strep throat.  The two littlest ones (I have 3) had croup too.  Fun stuff!!  So, my posts have kept with the every other day frequency because I haven't gotten a lot of stamping time.

Anyway, I love making these little boxes.  They're SO quick and easy to make.  If you click here, you will be taken to the tutorial over on SCS for how to make them (no re-inventing the wheel coming from me!!).  I needed a cute little container to send some treats to a good friend and this is what I came up with.  The little birdie just looked like he was singing happily so I thought he could sing some hearts ;)  Hope you like it!!

All supplies SU! unless otherwise noted.

Stamps:  Cheep Talk
Paper:  Whisper White and Kiwi Kiss CS, Riding Hood Red Patterns DSP
Ink:  Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Breeze classic ink, Close to Cocoa and Summer Sun markers
Accessories: Eyelet Border punch, blender pen, Paper Piercing Tool and Template, Stampin' Dimensionals, Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon
