I have been busy drafting templates and drawing lately trying to find something easy and economical to make for Valentine treats. I especially wanted something more masculine as I have two boys. I began by deciding what message I wanted to convey and chose the following 2 sayings:
1. "Nuts about you" and
2. "Sweet on you"
I designed a small box to put sweets and nuts in and made these:
For a girly treat I used the pinks and reds, the digi stamp is from Pink Cat Studio (I used Itty Bitty Betty- Ladybug and just added punched out hearts over the flower and in the antenna), I also added some gingham ribbon around the base of the box. The sweet on you bookplate I created in Word Art. Both the bookplates and template for the box appear at the end of this post.
Inside I placed a bag of pink gumballs to tie in with the sentiment.
For the boyish treat I used the more traditional neutral brown shades and I drew was I call the Love Nut Man to decorate the front of the box. The sentiment, Sweet treat box template and Love Nut Digital stamp can all be saved as... at the end of this post.
For the boys I added a bag of nuts.
So because we are heading for the month of love and to share the loving I'm sharing my templates with you for FREE, for personal use only please.
Remember right click on the images and save as.... to save them. I find that once I've saved them if I click and drag them into a word doc they are easier to manipulate (resize) and print put. The box template will print onto a A4 page and is ready to cut out and score.
