Valentine's Day Treat Box

Hi scrappers! This is Kate from Sassy and Scrappy and I have a fun, boy-themed Valentine project to share with you today.

I found this milk carton in the Silhouette store and thought it would be perfect to fill with goodies for my nephew.

I stretched the image to fill the mat, when standing the box is just over 7 inches.

I decided to ink around the edges of the box. One thing I like about the Silhouette Cameo over the Cricut is that the perforations aren't as visible, so the addition of the ink enhances the box as opposed to using it to cover up unsightly cut lines.

I used a Martha Stewart punch to create an embellishment around the box.

The paper that I colored my stamped image on is a bright white, which doesn't fit with the vintage looking paper I chose, so I spritzed over it and inked the edges.

In the picture below you can see how the spray mist changed the color of the paper, it also adds the appearance of texture.

A close-up of the top of the box. The Silhouette cuts out the holes, so all I had to do was string my ribbon through and tie it closed.

In this picture you can see the colored and stamped image a little closer. I thought the robot was the perfect addition for a boy-themed Valentine.
