A Real Treat

Hello Crafty Friends! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

Today's project is something I put together for the challenge over at My Craft Spot. Challenge #21 is Gift Bags / Boxes. I was thrilled when I found out that Kimberly extended the deadline for this challenge as I had a little time to play this weekend.
For my treat box I used an SVG file that I had purchased from SVG Cuts entitled Tied Surprise Gift Boxes. I used the flower box but got rid of the flower. I inked all of edges of my box in black.

I decided to use patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Black Bird collection. I purchased this from Shop Pumpkin Spice. I highly recommend this online store as the prices are fabulous and shipping is very reasonable.

I trimmed the box in My Craft Spot's gorgeous Crinkle Ribbon. I used Candied Orange and inked it with black ink to go with the look of the paper. I, also, used Midnight Black to tie my box. Kimberly's Crinkle Ribbon is absolutely gorgeous and I love working with it.


For my cuts, I used the spider web from Mini Monsters and removed the spider. I inked the edges and applied Ranger Glossy Accents. My spider came from Paper Doll Dress Up. I hid the face using my Gypsy. I stamped his face with Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-692 Monster Mash Face Assortment.

Since I was stamping on black cardstock I decided to heat emboss the face with black embossing powder to help it stand out. This is a little trick I learned from Kimberly at My Craft Spot. :) I used my white gel pen to fill in the eyes. I then attached my spider to the web with a little white thread and popped him up with some foam tape.

My sentiment comes from Scrappy Moms Stamps ( my favorite! ). It is from the "A Haunting We Will Go" set. I heat embossed the sentiment in black, also. I love how it turned out.

I added a little brad from Studio G and my little gift box was complete!

I hope you will come back. On Wednesday I have a special project to share with you. I am the guest designer on Pink By Design!

Thanks for stopping and Happy Crafting!!
