Valentine Treat Boxes

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a couple of sweet treat boxes you can make in a flash with just a few craft supplies and these wonderful products from Craft Fantastic.  If you make or buy sweets for the kids to take to school, give your family a little surprise, or maybe share treats with friends and co-workers, you are sure to please with these sweet treats for Valentine's Day.

I started with an empty paper towel holder cut in half to give me two pieces for my treat boxes. Because I like to upcycle, but you could use cardstock with this free printable template to cut out your own box that measures about 6 x 4."  Or if you have a pillow box die cut or SVG that will do too.

I used 6 x 6" polka dot patterned paper, cut down to 6 x 4", wrapped around and adhered to the paper towel holder with sticky dots. Then used the remaining 2 x 6" strip to wrap around the centers of the holders and adhered with sticky dots too.  Add ribbon (as shown in pic 1 above).

To make Craft Fantastic glass pieces for projects, follow these 3 basic steps: 

1.  Choose from hundreds of images. Add several drops of Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the back of an appropriate sized Glass you've chosen. Press on image until set. Wipe off any excess glue with a Q-tip.

2.  Cut around the glass and cut out the image.

3.  Adhere glass images and patterned paper with Fantastic Super Sticky Dots.

And you can find more details on how I made these glass pieces sparkle here. 

I felt like the glass pieces still needed I did what I do...I layer!!!  And I adhered them to larger images with sticky dots to make them pop.  And pop they did.  Don't you think?  Cut out the images.  Adhere the whole piece to the treat box with sticky dots. Push in and pinch the ends to close. And I added a Valentines sticker to the back.

Add some candy and you're ready to surprise your loves with these sweet treat boxes for Valentine's Day or any special day throughout the year!

Thanks for stopping by!  XOXO
