Hi TSG fans! Sarah back today with Anything but a Card Friday, or should that be fry-day? (I know, bad pun!) I love making treat boxes, they make little gifts or sweet treats so special.
When I started thinking about what I'd like to share today I was reminiscing about the very first template I used when I started discovering the stamping community...and it was a fry box.
You'd like any gift contained in such a cute little box, right?! You can find the printable template for this box here. I've used Flying By to decorate today and I think it turned out so sweet!
The template will print two boxes - I assembled the first one, and used the second to create templates to cut around on my patterned paper (Unforgettable by MME) The edges were lightly sponged with a neutral ink then I had fun decorating!
I stamped and colored the images with copics on x-press it blending card stock before fussy cutting them. The balloons got a coating of gloss paint for lots of shine. I embellished with some die cut felt clouds, the sentiment banner and some liquid pearls.
I also decorated the back of the box for a fun 3D look.
I hope I've inspired you to use your beautifully colored images on more than just cards, if you make a fry box, be sure to send me a link! Happy stamping!
