Just a Little Treat - Spellblogger post for Spellbinders


I've had this sweet little treat box die from Spellbinders sitting on my desk, waiting to be made use of for a few weeks now.  Finally it's turn is here!

I just love it, so couldn't resist making two versions for my latest
 Spellbloggers project
This adorable little box is abut 13cm long, 4cm wide and just less than 2cm deep - so it's quite dinky and just right for filling with a few chocolate treats!  I put some Mint Crisps in mine
The die set comes from Marisa Job's lovely Thoughtful Expressions
range from Spellbinders

I used some digital downloadable paper collections to print on both sides of plain white card. For the 'masculine' version I found a wood-grain effect design, and for the girly one some pretty pastels.
The box is cut all in one piece, just fold along the crease lines, add tape of glue to the tabs and it's done!  You get two sentiment 'toppers' in the die set
 "JUST FOR YOU" and "I YOU" 
There are also a cute little flower and a heart shaped die

I used the flower and heart dies to make a pretty decoration for the pastel box.
In both cases I wrapped the ribbon/string around the box before adhering the topper section ion place.  That way the ribbon doesn't obscure the words, and it stays in place when the box is opened.

I think the message toppers would make great sentiments for a card or a tag too - it's always good to get more mileage from your dies, isn't it 😉

I just used one the Spellbinders die set this time
