Happy Birthday Treat Box....

I am so super excited!!! This is my first post as a new designer over at My Scrap Chick! I LOVE all the cuteness in these files and they are right up my alley! Sometimes we get into a rut and forget about all the cute stuff we have in our stashes. I have so many files from MSC and have neglected them for too long. Not any more, though! So, here's a cute treat box you could design for any purpose.

Isn't he the cutest?! In my Silhouette software, I made another copy of the box...used the internal offset. I filled that with patterned paper. Then when I went to assemble to box, I cut apart the patterned paper one and those are the panels on the front of the box. I inked up the edges and simply glued it right on. 
I got a bit of wire out of my stash, wrapped it around a pencil to curl it, stretched it out a bit, and used strong adhere the wire to the inside wall of the box. 

For the cute candle, I laid it all out on my mat how I wanted it to be, then made a shadow layer. When going to put it together, it's sorta like doing a puzzle and you have a nice black mat to make it really pop. I did use dimensional adhesive on the patterned part, to pop it up off the black. Then I added more dimensional adhesive to the entire piece and adhered it to the front of the box. 
I added Stickles to the white layer and I used my Wink Of Stella glitter brush on the flames. I added some glossy accents to the eyes to make them shiny. Hard to see in a pic, but it makes them look much nicer! Gives it just that extra something.

For the flag, I simply stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and used white embossing powder. I scored and folded just enough to go over the wire. I inked the edges and added a few white gel pen dots. 

I hope you like this cute little guy...who wouldn't want this filled with some goodies on their special day?! You could customize this for any occasion. So let's see what I used for this.

There you have it. Get out your digital files and create something like this for your next special occasion. Watch for lots more posts using cute files from My Scrap Chick! So happy to be a part of this design team! Happy crafting!
