Paper Sweeties May 2018 Release Party!

Today is the day you can get the new release over at the Paper Sweeties Shop!  Today I'm sharing a couple projects including a treat box with the new Treat Box Sweet Cuts as well as a coordinating card!

This little treat box is such a cute size!  It comes with the Box Die (You cut two, fold at the scores and glue the two sides together.  I left one side of the top of the box unglued and just tied it close with a ribbon so it can easily be opened without ruining the box!  The heart and cute little words are also from the set and I LOVE that they rest on those thin lines so that you don't have to worry about handling (and losing) the little letters or lining them up!

I measured and cut my layers for the outside and for the sides, I cut an extra box side, cut out the end, measured in 1/8" on each side and cut it down to keep as a template.  I wrote all of my measurements on that template and keep it right with my die so I have it when I need it!

For my card, I used the heart die to cut a window in the wood grain for a shaker.  I doubled up my foam tape so that I'd have room for the beautiful, but dimensional Paper Sweeties sequins.  I created the outline by using the piece of floral wood grain that I'd cut my heart that is on the box (all I had left...lol) and then cut around the outside of that window to create a frame for my shaker.  I love that I was able to add a little of that design paper from the treat box even though I'd already used most of it up.  I used the sweet flowers from the Hello Spring Stamp Set and Sweet Cuts.  I chose yellow because there is a little of that yellow in the papers I used and love the contrast with all of that pink.

I'm playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #CIC446!  All that pink and a little bit of blue too... just a sweet sweet color pallet!

So happy you stopped by today!  Be sure to check out what everyone has created for you today!  And come back tomorrow for the Release Rewind... I'll have a quick photo tutorial for you of how to put this treat box together... it's easy peasy!
