Perfect for party favors, hostess gifts, home decor or just a sweet treat, this 3″ x 5″ x 2″  treat box is actually an altered Graphic 45 Small Matchbook Box.

I’ve covered the window opening with an easy to make shaker pouch.  This is probably the easiest way I know to create a shaker element.  Learn how to make one in the video tutorial below.

I dug through my embellishments to create a little charm cluster made with broken jewelry, a metal key and padlock, vintage style safety pin and a darling miniature spoon.  This is topped with a double loop green gingham bow, gold string and fancy button.

    Kathy, what a precious little gift/treat box! A surprise of tea pouches and candies is just perfect! Love this project with the papers and shaker elements you used. I can only make so many cards with all the papers I have. I need to branch out. LOL Thank you for sharing and giving me new ideas! Hugs!

    This is absolutely delightful, Kathy. The paper collection has wonderful images and the bowed charms add a special touch to the box top. Using the G45 box works so well with your layering and embellishments. The carded treats inside are just the thing for this holiday. I’m mentally adding a variety of these items to my next wish list! tfs
