Window Boxes

I was preparing for the Valentine's Day class and wanted to have a treat box as a 3D item..  Initially I thought of the Window Box, but after making a sample I realized that this box would take too long to make in class - along with the 3 cards.  However, I did end up making 2 boxes to have on display.
I did make a sample treat container, but it is very simple and should not take too much time to make.

The boxes were surprisingly easy to put together, but I did refer to the video make by Stampin' Up.  See the video below:




The Window box framelit and Real Red cardstock were used to make the box. The side panels were stamped in Real Red ink using  the coordinating stamp set "Window Shopping" on Whisper White.  These panels were trimmed to size, matted with Red glimmer paper and then adhered to each of the 6 sides.  A red glimmer heart was punched with the Sweetheart punch and adhered to the front side panel; a whisper white pop up heart die cut with the "Love Notes" framelits  on the front.  Some rhinestones were placed on the center of this heart.



A doillie was placed on the lid, followed by a 2 1/2" punched red glimmer circle.  The sentiment punched with a 2" circle punch was adhered to the red glimmer circle with dimensionals and then attached to the lid top. Some itty bitty dazzling diamond and red glimmer hearts were placed around the sentiment.

Stamps: So In Love, Window Shopping
Inks: Real Red
Papers: White paper doillie, Red glimmer, Dazzling Diamond glimmer, Whisper White
Accessories: Window Box, Love Notes Framelits, Sweet heart punch, Itty Bitty heart punch, 2 1/2" circle, 2" circle, 3/8" silver metallic ribbon, dimensionals.

After die cutting this box with Sweet Sugarplum card stock, each panel and the lid was die cut with the hearts panel, although two of the panels I cut upside down. On the inside, each panel and the inside of the lid was covered with silver foil paper.  This really popped the patterned image. The box was then put together.


On the lid was placed the new Very Vanilla doillie followed by a flower made using the Succulent framelits.  The edges of each Very Vanilla flower was sponged with Sweet Sugarplum ink before shaping and adhering together.
The center of the flower consists of 5 punched red glimmer hearts folded in half and adhered to form this 3D embellishment.
Two bows adhered together was attached to the lid front.
