Fresh Vintage Treat Tube

I'm trying to take photos only with my small pocket camera so I can get use to it so while my big camera is in being cleaned.  I wasn't aware that the big digital cameras are only good for about 10,000 photos before they need service.  I am close to that.  I am amazed at how many photos I do take.  So since I used the pocket camera on this treat holder I didn't get in as close as I would have liked to. When I did the flash would go off and all you saw as an outline of a box, a very white glowing box!!

This was not the project I was going to post for you today.  I did finish it but when I saw this one I just had to make it and then I just had to post it!  I will get the other project on here.  Though I don't think it's half as cool as this one is.  

I used Lucky Limeade card stock and Everyday Enchantment decorative paper.  Inks used here are Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade and Pool Party.  And the stamp sets I used are are Fresh Vintage and Petite Pairs (for the words because I didn't have the set used in the original box).  And in a way I was glad because I would have just copied it and I really didn't need a birthday box for anyone right now.

I did punch the tiny hole in the label piece wrong.  It should have been on the side.  I was just thrilled that I got it centered at the top!!! LOL  But being punched at the top worked out well too so I'm happy with the outcome of this box.

You can watch the fun and easy video on how to make this fun box at Chic'n Scratch.  It's not a very long video and the boring parts (like taping) are sped up so you don't have to sit and wait.  And speaking of taping . . . I would recommend adding the Sticky Strip before you attach the ends.  I found it ackward to work with it the way she was instructing. Watch the video first (something I don't always do and should so I know to try something different or easier) then make your fun treat box.  

This would be a fun idea for stocking stuffers, using Christmas colors and the candies of Christmas.  Or even putting money in it and using it as a VERY cool money holder!  I'd like to play with this some more and see what else I can come up with!!  It has a LOT of potential.  And of course I will share with you what I make!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
