Treat Box

I learned how to make this sweet little treat box (2"x2"x2") from watching another video from Sam Donald in the UK (www.pootles.co.uk).  She is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and is very creative.  Check out her blog, she has so many great ideas.  I want to make more of these but I think the next one will be more colorful instead of the black and gray.
Sorry the photo is not great, it's late and the lighting was not great.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
