Foiled Valentine’s Day Treat Box

Hi everyone, Ivy Pe here with a very easy treat box using a variety of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® tapes and 3D Foam products! 😊 Lovin’ the different colors of red, magenta and silver in foil, it really makes this treat box shine without much effort. So why not make a Valentine’s Day Treat Box?!

Valentine’s Day Treat Box

I’m going to embellish the front surface of a ready-made gable box using a combination of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-inch, Crafty Foam Tape, 3D Foam Circles and 3D Foam Creative Sheets.

For the top row die-cut a thin scalloped border with 3D Foam Creative Sheets. In the next row, apply a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4-inch. Below it, place a strip of Crafty Foam Tape Black and a row of 3D Foam Circles White in small size underneath. Cut a thin strip of 3D Foam Creative Sheet using my paper trimmer. Then die-cut a different scalloped border with 3D Foam Creative Sheets and placed it at the very bottom. Finally, add a strip of Premium Double-Sided Tape ½-inch above the border.

Foiling Fun

Now the fun part: foiling! I’m using a combination of the red and silver foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit, magenta foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Variety, and the silver foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Holographic.

Taking one row at a time, remove the top liner and apply the foil color side UP, rub the foil with my fingertip to transfer the color and peel off. Simple! Repeat with the rest of the rows, using the desired foil color.

Designer Tip: Reapply the foil if you missed a spot.

Adding the Glitter Tag

Let’s make a silver glitter tag ties in with the box. Start by die-cutting four different sized hearts with 3D Foam Creative Sheets Small White. It is so easy to cut and leaves no residue on my dies.

Using the same combination of foils on the treat box, place a heart die cut on the bottom of a silver glitter tag and remove the top liner. Apply the foil as mentioned above. Repeat with the other hearts.

Thread the ribbon through the top of the tag and tie around the handle of the box. Secure it even more by adding the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2-inch in the ribbon before tying it onto the box.

I love using the Metallic Transfer Foils, they add such an impact to a project and make it look much more complicated than it really is. Without much time and effort, you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day Treat Box!

Have a crafty day!
