When making treat containers, I actually re-purpose and re-use old containers that I have saved through out the year. Whenever I see an unusual container, I look at it and think 'Mmm, I bet I could make this into something else, I better 'save it' and into a box it goes! Then during the various holidays through out the year, I pull out my box and I am always amazed at all the unique containers I have to make something with. Here is one of the treat containers I made today that I filled with Valentine Candy:
Here's a detail shot. I cut the heart with a Spellbinder's Die. The sentiment is a retired DCWV sticker, and I added the heart and key charm with a glue dot.
Now this is what the container was in it's first life! Isn't that amazing? I simply took the container apart, laid it on a piece of designer paper, traced around it, cut it out, and glued the paper onto the box. A few decorations later and wa-la I have a unique, one of a kind treat box!
