Butter Carton Template Valentine Treat Box….

So I was cooking with butter and I grabbed the box and emptied out the sticks and was about to throw the box in the recycle bin…and LOL inspiration hit. I disassembled the box and created a template with it. It was really easy, so easy in fact that I felt daring enough to cut a window in one of the sides. So there you have it…free template from a butter carton. I used some CS from my stash, That’s Amore PP from CTMH, ribbon also from my stash, sentiment CTMH, Tulip ink CTMH. I used the clear bit in the front of a paper cd sleeve to cover my window…now if there was any candy left in the house I could fill it :0)

This fits the challenge from Get Sketchy…which is Trash to Treasure.

And possibly the Template challenge from Just Us girls challenge Blog

Have a wonderful Sunday my friends I hope you all stay safe and warm.

Enjoy.

Awesome box, Sarah! Beautiful colors and love that paper. You did a great job with the template, too! Wonderful idea.

Hope your day is a good one, too. It finally stopped snowing here. All is calm and bright.

This is beautiful Sarah! Domestic and creative...you're the complete package. Thanks for a great idea...perhaps I need to go empty the recycle bin and see what other boxes may strike my fancy.

WOW, this is fantastic! Aren't you the clever one!! I guess I'd better start thinking outside the "box" (pardon the pun) before putting items in the recycle or trash!
Your project is beautiful and will certainly make someone very happy! Well done!!

Lisa Kind said...

OMGoodnes, Sarah! Now I have to save my butter boxes too? LOL!!! This is FABULOUS! It's amazing what we stampers do, isn't it? I love this box! And I know what you mean about no candy! Mine's all gone...no kids in the house and DH doesn't like sweets! Hmmmmm....!! Thanks so much for playing our JUGs challenge!

Sarah you always manage to take crafting to a new level for me. I can not imagine looking at an empty butter container and turning it into an breathtaking project just amazes me. You amaze me! Thanks for sharing!
