MCT Sneak Peek #4


Happy Valentine's Day!  Are you on excitement overload for this new My Creative Time release?  There are so many fun new goodies to play with!  Today we are sneaking the new Treat Slider Box!  Look how cute and fun this box is!  It's the perfect size for four Hershey's Nuggets, but really anything can be tucked into it!  There are four dies included:  the bottom and top of the box, along with two different Nugget covers that can be used together or on their own.


For my box, I used some red cardstock for the base and a striped patterned paper from Carta Bella's Devoted 6x6 pack for the top.  I also used the new MCT Stitched Doily Die to decorate it.  Since the doily was a little too wide, I cut out a strip from the middle, pushed the two parts together, and covered the "seam" with some ribbon.  I used a heart from MCT's Stitched Layering Heart Dies to cover the point where the two ends of the ribbon meet, and on top of that I put a little button made with the new MCT Stitched Button Dies.  I tied the button with a little bit of Thin Hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  For the Nuggets, I covered two with just the rectangular strip (you can see one in the box), and I added the scalloped strip on top of the other two.  So pretty!


I couldn't stop at just one box, so I made this one for the aide who works in my classroom.  I used hot pink for the base and cute patterned paper from Echo Park's Love Story for the top.


To decorate this one, I wound some black Thin Hemp around the box, attaching a couple of "charms" and a tag made with the new MCT Chunky Jar Accessories.  I made the crown using some silver paper from The Paper Company, layering it on a piece of black cardstock to give it extra stability.  The key was made with two layers of black cardstock and Glossy Accents on top.  I love the realistic look it gives!


I also added a little heart from the Stitched Heart Layering Dies, which I stamped with a background from MCT's Build a Banner Kit, using Versamark Ink.

NOTE:
Since the Treat Slider Box is a larger die, this will ALWAYS be a "PRE-ORDER" item.  Please allow a 2 week turn around for delivery of this die.  ALSO, this will be sold individually and will NOT be included with the bundle!

Sneak Peek Giveaway Time!
With all of our Sneak Peek Weeks, Emma likes to do some FUN giveaways!

*** This time around we are doing something a little bit different!  All you have to do is leave comments on our blogs!  You do NOT have to comment on every blog.  BUT, if you do, you will just have more chances to win!  The thing we are switching up this time is that Emma will be picking a winner each night and announcing the winner the next morning!  Example:  for Monday's sneak, leave your comments here and share on Facebook, and then Emma will announce Monday's winner on Tuesday morning!  That means a winner will be announced every day during sneaks!

*** SPREAD THE WORD TO THE WORLD ON FACEBOOK about this release and to whatever connections you may have!  Let us know on "My Creative Time's" FB page here that you did so!  OR you can just tag Emma in your post!
