Sweet Treat Thursday -- Ladies' Dress Treat Box

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!

Hi everyone,

This project is a follow-up to this one which was a treat box dressed in a tuxedo. Today I'd like to show you the lady version:

This one was little bit simpler than the man version. Just a bit of DSP to cover the box, taking good care to punch with the Wide Oval for the collar before gluing it down.

The lace goes around the collar for an elegant effect which is held by a strip of Tacky Tape and pleated to make it easier to go around. The necklace is a small Real Red button with a Pearl Jewel in the center and a strand of pearls on each side!

Chocolate anyone? Can you imagine wow-ing your dinner guests with a few boxes like that?!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Brights Patterns DSP Stack
Punches: Wide Oval and Corner Rounder
Ribbon: Real Red 5/8" Satin, Crochet Trim Victoria 5/8"
Other: Brights Designer Button in Real Red,  SNAIL Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip
