For this week's challenge, I decided to make my VERY FIRST Coaster Gift Box. I've been wanting to attempt one of these for while now and this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to do so. I used medium weight coasters for my box which I purchased from Eclectic Paperie. The patterned paper I used to cover the coasters is called Hand-Dipped and it's from the BasicGrey Bittersweet Collection. I used Pretty in Pink and Purely Pomegranate cardstock and ribbon to match. The heart shaped chocolate box image is from the SWEET THINGS set. I colored it in with Copic Markers, added Crystal Stickles to the ribbon and bow, and used my white gel on the chocolates. Of course I had to fill the box with chocolates (LOL), so I used some Hershey Nuggets that I had on hand. I stamped white address labels with the swirl looking heart from the WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE set and I used both Pretty in Pink and Purely Pomegranate ink to match the cardstock and ribbon. The "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment is also from the WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE set. To finish the box off, I added some white tissue paper that was left over from Christmas...LOL! So, why not join us this week and make your own Valentine Treat Holder and don't forget to check out more Valentine Treat Holders on the SUINK Blog. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.
