Candy Treat Box

I love this little box.  It is great for a small gift or a little treat for anyone you know.  I love how versatile it could be.  Just by changing the color and accessories you get a completely different look.  You can find the directions here at Chic' n Scratch (one of my favorite sites to visit).

The words come in a great new stamp set called Whimsical Words.  This set is only available until March 31, 2010, during sale-a-bration.  This set has many wonderful words that can be used for many different occasions or events.

I made a couple of changes from Angie's example.  I have had some paper that I picked up at Hobby Lobby that I wanted to try with rich razzleberry (in-color) and thought this was a great time to try.  This box did not want to stay closed with the 1/2" circle closure.  I decided that it needed a little more weight and so I made a faux button to use as the closure, and it looks great also.  The flowers are just some silk flowers that I got at the store and colored one with the rich razzleberry marker to match the box.  I love using the 5-petal flower punch to make leaves to go with any flower, it just works so great.  I layered all the flowers and leaves together and connected with the brad.  I then attached this to the box using a medium glue dot.

This box was very fun and I plan to make more with different papers.  I can't wait to play and see what I can come up with next.

My newest creation is this little notepad. I am very excited with how it turned out. I am always needing a piece of paper to write down notes each time that I go visit my dad, so I decided to make something that anyone could use and looks better than just a plain notebook. The front and back cover are just 1/4 sheets of card-stock and then I decorated the front with something I hope my dad will enjoy seeing.

Now that I have made this notepad I can't wait to make more for other people and other occasions. The great thing about this notepad is that I can just add more pages when these have all been used. All I did for the paper is cut plain printer paper into quarters and punched the holes to match. I did run the paper through my printer first to put lines on before cutting but you would not need to. (I will try to upload my lined paper to print that is already formatted to fit.)

Click here to download the note paper.  Download as a Microsoft Word document to get the formatting to work.

I hope that you all enjoy this as much as I do.
