Thanks & Hugs Triangle Treat Boxes

Happy Tuesday! I've been playing with the fabulous Triangle Treat Box Die from ModaScrap. While playing with the Triangle Treat Box die, I created these two fabulous treat boxes that features some of the new patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as some dies from ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio. I have a tutorial below for you so that you can recreate my two fabulous Thanks & Hugs Triangle Treat Boxes at home. 



To start, you'll need to cut two Triangle Treat Boxes out of two patterned pieces from the Sweet Vintage Rose paper from ModaScrap.



Die cut two 1 1/4" Stitched Circles out of the backside of the fly sheet from the Sweet Vintage Rose Patterned Paper. Ink the edges of the stitched circles using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with foam.



Die cut two 1 1/2" Dotted Scallop Circles out of patterned paper from the Sweet Vintage Rose patterned paper.



From the Dancing Butterflies die, die cut two small butterflies out of patterned paper from the Sweet Vintage Rose patterned paper.



From the Stitched Fishtail Banners die, die cut two 1/2" stitched fishtail banners out of patterned paper from the Sweet Vintage Rose patterned paper. Once the banners have been cut out, cut each banner down to 2". Ink the edges of each banner using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam.



From the Stitched Fishtail Banners die, die cut two 3/4" stitched fishtail banners from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Once the banners have been cut out, cut each banner down to 2 1/4". Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the "Hugs" sentiment and stamp onto one of the banners. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the "Thanks" sentiment and stamp onto one of the banners. Ink the edges of each banner using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam.



Using the Bunch of Flowers 4 die, die cut one of the flowers set out of the Sweet Vintage Rose Patterned Paper pack. Die cut the same set of flowers out of another piece of the Sweet Vintage Rose Patterned Paper. 



From the Curvy Leaves die, die cut two - two leaf leaves, two - three leaf leaves and two - five leaf leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Once the leaves have been cut out, ink the entire surface of all the leaves using Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam. Shape your leaves as desired.



Assemble both of your Triangle Treat Boxes using liquid glue or Clear Double Sided Adhesive.



Now it's time to adhere your first Triangle Treat Box.

Adhere one of the patterned paper banners to one of the sentiment banners. Adhere the banners to the back of one of the Dotted Scallop Circles. Adhere one of the stitched circles to the middle of the Dotted Scallop circle.



Adhere one of each of the leaves set to the stitched circle has desired. Adhere the butterfly to the left of the sentiment. 
To assemble your flower, adhere the three layers together. Once the flower has been put together, add a Transparent Glitter/Gold dot to the center of the flower. Adhere the flower overtop of the leaves and butterfly.



Adhere the banner embellishment to one of the Triangle Treat Box. Your first treat box is finished.



Now, lets create your second Triangle Treat Box.

Adhere the other patterned paper banner to the other sentiment banner. Adhere the banners to the back of the other Dotted Scallop Circles. Adhere the other stitched circle to the middle of the Dotted Scallop circle.



Adhere each of the leaves set to the stitched circle has desired. Adhere the butterfly to the left of the sentiment. 



To assemble your flower, adhere the three layers together. Once the flower has been put together, add a Transparent Glitter/Gold dot to the center of the flower. Adhere the flower overtop of the leaves and butterfly.



Adhere the banner embellishment to one of the Triangle Treat Box. Your first treat box is finished.



Here are some photos of my finished Thanks & Hugs Triangle Treat Boxes.

Vintage Hollywood Ticket Booth

Today I'm up on Graphic 45's blog sharing with you my Vintage Hollywood Ticket Booth.  This month, three Brand Ambassadors were challenge to create a project using three Graphic 45 products. The three products we had to use was the Deep Square Matchbook Box, any Patterns & Solids collection and the matching Tags and Pockets. In addition to the three products, we could also use Metal, Inks and Ribbon.  Below I'll share a few photos, a bit about my ticket booth as well as some tips and tricks about my project. If you haven't stopped by Graphic 45's blog yet, you'll want to, as Sandy and Marina have also created fabulous projects using the same three products and I have some more photos on their blog of my Vintage Hollywood Ticket Booth.


With only being able to use three products plus a few additional products, I found this project to be a bit more challenging and definitely put me out of my comfort zone, but it was a ton of fun to make. 

Tip: Cut a bit off the side and top of the tag to create the shelf at the front of the box.


Tip:  Using black gesso, paint 1/4” in from the box giving you a nice finished edge.


To see more pictures of my Vintage Hollywood Ticket Booth, you'll want to head over to the Graphic 45 blog.
