Treat Tubes for Valentine's Day Gifts

I recently got the January special from Close To My Heart (which is no longer available) and had some time today to play with the kit. The treat tubes are neat and, using the ideas on the packaging as inspiration, I decorated two this afternoon and thought I'd share. (Click on a photo to enlarge) I have used the stamp set that comes with the kit previously, but today I put together the boxes for the treat jars and the jars themselves.
 On the red box, I stamped the chevron stamp in Garnet, which I thought was a great dark color for the Cranberry read. The kit comes with a sheet of glitter paper and I thought I'd go ahead and use it, too.  For the white box, I stamped in Cotton Candy, a new to me color of ink. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to keep the heart them going.  All the stamps used are from the kit.

 I decorated the lid of the treat jar, too.

These were fun to play with and I've got at least 10 more I can decorate. Wheeeee!

Thanks for stopping by. 
I hope you are having a great weekend.

Hi Jeanne, love your treats! These stamps are wonderful - the treat holders in the special were "good" but the stamps are over the top! Your versions are darling!
