Valentines Treasure Box featuring Silhouette Cameo

This treasure box is full of ADORBALENESS… Ok that is not a word.  But it should be.  The Hey Valentine stamp set from Stampin’ UP! is so cute.  I have made lots of goodies using that set.  When I saw this pirate I thought I need to make him a REAL treasure box.  So that’s what I did using my new and awesome and spectacular Silhouette Cameo.

Of course I had to put GOLD NUGGETS in this treasure box.  And Hershey Gold Nuggets are a real treasure no doubt.  I ate so many of these one time it made me feel sick.  Ok, so it was last week when I made this box.  But no one needs to know that. 🙂

Tips & Tricks

  • Prefold all of your folds before you ever begin assembling this box.  It has  A LOT of folds.
  • Ink the edges of the box to give it an old and antiqued look.  *oh wait that is the same thing old and antique, not really two different descriptive words*
  • Use sticky strip or hot glue when assembling this box.  Or really in box.  It just holds better.

Here is the video on how I put the box together and how I colored the pirate.  I loved doing this project, it was so fun.  BUT NOT something I would mass produce.  It was time consuming.

Don’t forget that Sale A Brations is going on right now.  You can order $50 in product and get an item free.  Place a $150 order and get 3 free items PLUS $25 in free product of your choice.  PLACE YOUR ORDER HERE.

So this post is part of a creative blog hop.  I have to answer these questions and give you a couple of blogs to go check out.

  • What am I working on?  This blog post LOL and of course all my fun tutorials and into for you all.
  • How does your work differ from others in your genre?  I really like a clean and simple look and then I also love watercoloring.  I tend to use brights and bolds more than any other colors.
  • Why do you create what you do?  Because I LOVE making beautiful things to give to people and to share with people.  I can’t help it and am a little embarrassed to admit this but I get super excited when someone says “Oh my gosh that is so cool.  You are so creative.”
  • How does your creative process work?  Um, I have no idea.  I just create.  I get a lot of inspiration from others.  Pinterest, Instagram.
