Shaker Box Love

Hi friends,
Ok, so V-Day is coming up in a few so I thought I'd share 3 more simple projects before the big day arrives. Today I have a super simple treat box made with the Sizzix Shaker Box. I luuuv this die. The box is so versatile & it's a great size for filling with goodies. The best part is that it comes out in one piece & is easy-peasy to put together. Perfect for school treats & has been teacher approved ;) So let me give ya a peek at some of the treat boxes I put together speedy-quick!
 Box #1 closed:
Open: (I added a Hershey chocolate heart)
As you can see, there's room for more, but 1 heart was all I wanted to add.

Box #2 closed:

Box #3 closed:
I filled it with a marshmallow kitty---> purrfect!
I used a couple of punches to embellish, wrapped some ribbon around it & that's it! So easy peasy, but a cute presentation :) Using 2-sided paper is a plus. You'll get 2 boxes from 1 sheet of 12x12" cardstock.
If you don't have this die, you can create this box with the tutorial I created ---> HERE. (Just scroll down until you get to the tutorial for the box itself.)

ETA: The little crown (and all the other props I use for my cards) can be found at Michael's, it was $3.99 + 40% off :) Nice!

Thanks for peeking! Two more projects before V-day, and if I can get it together, one will be a video tutorial!  :)
Gotta Go!


  1. These boxes are so cute, great papers and love the little extra embellishments like the key and silver heart. Great job.
