Recently I attended Stampin’ Up’s OnStage Live event in Salt Lake City. I participated in a couple of organized swaps. The first one was a Dinner & Swap organized by Monika Davis at Red Rock Brewing Co. Here’s what I made. (These photos were taken in my hotel room on the bed.)
I decorated the boxes beforehand, but I left them flat and waited until I got to SLC to assemble and fill them. I was afraid they would get damaged on the trip there if I assembled them before packing them.
Of course, I did have to put one together so see how many candies I should put in each one, but I flattened it again for travel.
For each Tiny Treat Box, I cut six 1-3/4″ squares of Bohemian Designer Series Paper. I punched a half circle out of the top of one piece with the 3/4″ Circle Punch to accommodate the round finger notch in the front panel of the box. I glued the pieces onto the boxes.
I stamped the sentiment from the Apple of My Eye stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink onto Very Vanilla card stock, then cut it with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch. I glued that onto a piece of Island Indigo card stock I cut with the 2″ Circle Punch, then I glued the whole thing onto the top of the box. I wanted to use Stampin’ Dimensionals here, but was concerned about them getting smushed in my suitcase, so I opted for glue. Once I got to Salt Lake City, I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the O in You’re.
I filled the boxes with assorted chocolates, including Dove Promises in Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Mint, and Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Caramel, as well as assorted Hershey Nuggets.
Here are my treat boxes filled and ready to take to the swap. A plastic shoe box was just the right size, and even would have held 10 more!
Check back to see the wonderful 3D items I received in this swap!
Here’s what I used:
Several of the products I used on these boxes will retire soon. Be sure to check out the retiring products in my online store A.S.A.P. Most are available only while supplies last, so hurry and get what you want before they’re gone!
