Pet Treat Boxes

   
      Welcome to another pet based project for Creative Expressions, this week we have some little treat boxes for you.

      The boxes are from a local craft shop and come ready to decorate, fold and fill. I have put a one pound coin here so you can see the size.
      Stamp one side using Archival Ink Coffee and the background stamp Kitten Treats. If you stamp the back of the box with this pattern you can hide the fact that the ends are not completely covered when you fold the box shut.
     Using the single stamp Best Friends mask off the dog and ink the stamp with Archival Coffee.
      Make sure you remove the masking tape BEFORE you stamp the box.
     Stamp the second box back with Paw Print Lattice with the same ink.
      Mask off the cat this time and stamp the dog onto the box.
      Fill the boxes with dry treats, fold in the flaps at the ends and tie up with Bakers Twine. Stamp two pieces of Kraft card with sentiments and die cut. Using foam pads mount these tags on the front of the boxes and your gift is ready.
      I just wanted to tell you about these wipes. Yes they are more expensive than supermarket wipes but have a look at this one, it's been on the go for six projects over a period of two weeks and it's still wet!
      I have kept it in a sandwich bag when not in use and even though I've cleaned countless stamps with it it still works. They even work on flake and glitter glue covered stamps!
      I am what I would call a thrifty crafter and would never have gone for these before, but now I've tried them I am a definite convert.
