Day 3 with Michele Kovack- Sweet Treats

Today Michele has some Sweet Treats to share with us. You will love how she repackaged her candy into these sweet little gift boxes. Thanks Michele for all the fun inspiration this week.

For Today's project, I purchased individual boxes of Jelly Belly's. I created my own template by wrapping the paper to find out where the creases needed to be, as well as the length and width of the paper..

Once I did this, I cut it to the correct length and width and scored it so it would fold around the box. I used Papertrey paper as well as "vintage" (LOL!) SEI paper that I loved when I bought it many years ago.....and still do! I inked the edges of the paper using Tim Holtz's Antique linen.

I layered the SEI polka dot paper on top of blue paper that I cut using pinking shears. Adhere this to the box. I stamped the, What's Cookin' Borders and Centers set twice, distressed the edges, and cut the circles using my Spellbinder's Nestibilities. I added a third layer using the Spellbinders pinking circles die.

I then took pretty satin ribbon and glued it on 3 sides and then tied it. I glued the layered sentiment on top of that. Just untie the ribbon, and open up these sweet treats!

Be sure to stop back on Thursday and Friday to see the gorgeous ensembles Michele has made for those days.

Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".
