MCT What a Treat Wednesday


It's What a Treat Wednesday with My Creative Time!  One of my colleagues has a birthday coming up, and I thought I'd make her a little treat box.  I found a cute Lori Whitlock pizza box cut in the Silhouette Online Store, and adjusted it to make it 3" x 3".  I cut the brown square at 2 3/4" and the white one at 2 1/2". Following Betsy Veldman's "Watercolor Smooshing" video tutorial, I inked up the background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick and Wild Honey before stamping it with the new My Creative Time Enjoy the Little Things stamp.  Then I added a pretty dimensional flower made with MCT's Jr. Rolled Flower Dies.


The box opens up to hold a good amount of treats!  Looks like I need to go shopping for some more before I give this to my friend.  Too much snacking has been taking place in the craft room!

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have to share with you today!

One problem I have with treats ready for the giving in the craft room is me taste testing too many. With treats as good as the Ghiradelli Caramels...who could resist them...not I. Your box is beautiful and your friend will love it.
