I needed to make 8 treat boxes for my son's teachers for his Valentine Party at school. It just so happened that Robyn, My Pink Stamper, issued a challenge. Her challenge was to use the color black along with your favorite color. I had to be creative due to the lack of use in my injured hand. My favorite color is pink so I started thinking Valentines!
My original idea was to make a BIG treat box and pack it full. Since I didn't have much time and was handicapped I toned it down. I found these little Chinese takeout boxes on clearance in the bridal section of Hobby Lobby last year. I stuffed them with Hershey Kisses and Snickers. I think glued a box of Sweathearts to the bottom. Then I started thinking black and pink:
I need to tie the Sweathearts to the takeout boxes to insure that they stayed. So, I took pink and black ribbon to tie a bow at the top. I then punched out a lot of little hearts:
I took My Pink Stamper Love-alicious stampset and added the sentiment. I then glued the heart to the top of the box.
I hope they love them because I think they turned out super cute!
