Newton's Nook Sweet Treats Blog Hop 2017
For my sweet treat, I created a set of Valentine's Day pillow boxes using the Woodland Duos stamp set.

I used a set of pre-made kraft pillow boxes, but there are tons of free templates online that you can download and use to create your own.

I began by stamping each of the adorable critters combos with Versafine Black Ink. Once the ink was dry, I colored the images using Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended them with Gamsol and blending stumps.

I then die cut each image using the stitched heart from the Darling Hearts die set.

I covered each of the pillow boxes with patterned paper and then adhered the die cut heart. I used black ink to stamp the coordinating sentiments from the stamp set onto the patterned paper.

The final step was of course, to fill each of them with chocolate and make them the perfect Valentine treat!
