Sweet treat packaging

Hi again,

I've been a bit absent from here over the past couple of weeks. Life outside of papercrafting has been a little hectic of late and sadly my blog has had to take a step aside for a few days. But now I'm back and excited to share some more gorgeous projects with you.

While most of my papercrafting time is spent cardmaking, one of my favourite things to create is beautiful packaging for treats and gifts. I'm very lucky to have an amazing homemade macaron business called Flavour + Heart in my local area and aside from being absolutely delicious, their macarons are so pretty and I just couldn't resist having a play with some beautiful gift packaging to compliment them. 

These Clear Tiny Treat boxes from Stampin' Up! are the perfect size to hold 2 delicious macarons. Add a belly band of Delightfully Daisy DSP, a paper daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set and a little ribbon and mini sequin trim and you have a beautiful treat to give as a party favour or wedding bonbonarie.

The next treat box has been made with some soft sky cardstock and a panel of window sheet scored and wrapped around the box so it will slide on and off. I've then added a belly band of Naturally Eclectic DSP and embellished it with a die cut diamond (from the Eclectic Layers thinlits) in silver glimmer paper, coordinating cardstock and a little silver mini sequin trim. For the 
sentiment I went with a Thank You from the All Things Thanks stamp set.

While a couple of macarons are nice as a small thank you gift or party favour, a box of 12 macarons was the perfect birthday gift for my macaron loving sister. 
The inspiration for this packaging came from this gorgeous card by the amazing Susan Wong

Usually when I CASE a project I take one or two elements and come up with my own creation but in this case I really struggled to improve on, what I'm sure you'll agree, is perfection. Thanks for the inspiration, Susan

Lastly I wanted a fun way to package a single macaron for a kids birthday party and I came up with this macaron pop in a box.

Flavour + Heart's legendary Fruit Tingle macarons looks amazing in this window sheet box embellished with a simple banner, an embossed balloon and a little white bakers twine.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you've enjoyed my projects and I haven't left you craving macarons too much (I'm kinda wishing I had a mac or two to have with my afternoon cuppa)
