Mini treasure chest paper gift box made with Stampin' Up! craft products

Have you booked your summer holidays yet? I've been musing over a tropical paradise retreat or a trip to Australia to see relatives either way white sandy beaches and blue, blue seas are the goal! Which set me off for today's project inspiration - a mini treasure box courtesy of a template from PaperCrafter samplers

This mini treasure box just took 15 minutes to make using crumb cake card which was embossed with the Stampin' Up! woodgrain embossing folder then cut & folded into shape using the template. 

I then inked the edges to give it a more aged look and wrapped some garden twine around it for that ramshackle beach look. 

A couple of stars using one of the merry minis 3 assorted punch pack (not just for christmas!) plus a candy dot as a seal and we're done - just fill with looted gold coins for a treasure treat!
