Valentine's - Shaker and Mini Treat Box

Happy Thursday OCS Fans! It's almost Fri-YAY!!

Last week I shared a card I made after challenging myself to use a stamp in a way that might not be the first thing that comes to mind - ie. rabbit = Easter.

This week I challenged myself to do a card that wasn't in the "normal" colours for a specific day/event. For Valentine's Day I automatically think red. 

I chose to go with a pink, blue and green theme for my card featuring Bear Buddies from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and mini treat box.

Mini Gift Box with Treats 

Mini Gift Box
I found the pattern on a site called Aunt Annie's Crafts (here)

I coloured my image and fussy cut it and then added it to my card base. I paper pieced their boots and the bow tie is paper pieced from  Joy Ride, another High Hopes stamp.  The base was formed by tracing and cutting out a heart shape, adding some foam tape, sequins and clear beads inside. I added a bow to finish it off. 
I also wanted to make a treat box to go along with my card so I googled it and found this very cute Little Gift Box . The Sweetheart candies are a wedding favour from my brother's wedding this past summer.
