Votive Treat Box ~ video tutorial

When I was at the Stampin’ Up convention in July I signed up to join in with an ‘organized swap’

It was for a 3D treat holder and the requirements were that it should hold a treat and be an original design if possible.  As I love to make boxes I knew that would be the base of my ‘treat’ but I also wanted to show a technique – after all I was going to be giving my treat to fellow stampers/papercrafters so I wanted it to have a bit of a WOW factor.

I decided my treat was going to be a votive candle and my technique would be heat embossing on window sheet.  I had to make 10 in total – which was just as well as they were rather involved.

Window sheet is a clear acetate sheet that comes in 12 x 12 sheets from Stampin’ Up!.

There are two video tutorials to go with this post, the first explains how to heat emboss the window sheet and the second is how to turn the window sheet into the treat holder.

Here are the main supplies used for embossing the window sheet:

 As a side note: I received some lovely swaps in return – when I later looked at them they all contained either cookies or candies – I am beginning to think that maybe my ‘treat’ did not meet the requirements of the swap………….. but at least it was different!
Here are the main supplies for completing the treat holder

Happy StamMy Project 4-001ping 🙂

If you’d like any of the supplies, to shop, or to get a catalog, please feel free to contact me, and if you’re thinking of joining Stampin’ Up! and my team I’d most definitely like to hear from you.
