Valentine Treat Box {Silhouette Cameo Project}

Who doesn't like to indulge in treats every now & then? As some of you know I received the Silhouette Cameo for Christmas.  Miss Cameo & myself have been working on getting to know one another over the past few weeks. Let's just say it started off as tumultuous relationship but she is slowly working her way back into my good graces.  I plan on sharing a tutorial soon with some basic Silhouette tips so you can avoid meltdowns that may just get you confined to a straight jacket but in the mean time this little Valentine treat box was one of our recent collaborations.

 While browsing the online Silhouette shop{ which is filled with all kinds of goodies!} I came across this scalloped lace gift box.

Right away I envisioned it as a cute way to package up some treats for a simple but sweet little Valentine gift. After downloading the template, Miss Cameo went to town doing her "thang" and cut out all the lines & intricate little details. All that was left for me was to add some colored card stock under the lid of the top of the box, adhere the the little word "Enjoy" to the top of the lid, add some cookies, & tie it up with some bakery twine. Easy peasy!

No electronic cutter? No worries, you can still get the same effect by downloading free box templates from the net like this one here. Then use an edge punch for the decorative details. See! I got your back.

Hope everyone is having a delightful Monday!

Hey it's good to know you've got my back because I don't have one of those super cool Silhouettes! The Valentine treat box is adorable though!

Super cute!

And I understand. Mr. Cricut has been the result of some meltdowns on my part.

First of all your blog is adorable, love the design. I really gotta get a makeover for mine!

Your card is so cute, love how delicate it is. It's also reminding me how much I need to get a Silhouette! I don't think my Cricut can cut anything quite a nicely. I'm ready for a change.

I'd love it if you'd join me at A Crafty Soiree and show it off there too!

I'm thinking about trading in my Cricut for the Cameo some day. For now I still mostly love my Cricut. I just long for more creative flexibility.
