Happy February!!  Today begins a new challenge on The House That Stamps Built blog.  As it is the first Wednesday of the month, this week's challenge is a Designer's Choice and Patti has chosen: Anything But a Card.  It could be a bookmark, box, bag, or any other paper creation you can think of as long as it is NOT a card. Valentine's Day is fast approaching and I took the opportunity to make these adorable little triangle treat boxes for my three kiddos.

 These boxes are THE cutest things!!  They are 2 inches by 2 inches and just perfect for holding a sweet treat or a small gift.  You can make your own by using this tutorial.
 I used the Flower Cluster Detail stamp to create the pattern on the the background.  I just stamped it several times, turning the stamp to create an even (mostly) pattern.  I added liquid pearls to the center of each flower just to add a bit of interest.  I stamped only the "love" portion from the "Love Stencil" stamp and then cut a little fishtail banner around it.  A die cut heart and some red ribbon make it perfect for Valentine's Day.  Here is a side view so you can see it in all it's triangle-y cuteness!
Make sure you hop over to The House Blog because the projects from the rest of the Design Team are amazing!!  There's something yummy and even a stunning smartphone cover that you do not want to miss.
