Valentine’s Day Presents

These are presents that I created for Steve and Samantha for Valentine’s day. They also just so happen to fit into the Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge for today – interactive elements. Killing two birds with one stone is always the best method for getting things accomplished! These are little treat boxes that I learned to make ages ago. It’s been so long that I don’t remember how I got the pattern, but I believe that it came from Stamp Heaven (a stamping group that used to meet in Beatrice, NE).

These boxes are great because they are quick and easy to make, and they stay closed on their own without the need for ribbons or ties. To open them, you just pull-up! It can be a bit tricky to get the top loose enough to be able to open easily.

These treat boxes used PTI Raspberry Fizz, Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate and Lemon Tart cardstock, Tiny Treats Valentines stamp set, PTI True Black and Raspberry Fizz ink, Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, and PTI Doily Details die.
