Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and you have some time to do crafts. Today is my scheduled blog post for Crafter's Companion and I have a very cool project I would like to share with you. It is a 3-IN-ONE project that only uses ONE 12" x 12" piece of cardstock + embellishments. Also, I will be sharing a Pin-Wheel Rosette Tutorial, using the newly launched Boxer boards for the Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool. I have made a Pin Wheel Tutorial in the past using the Ultimate Tool. I was happy with the Ultimate Tool before, but I was hoping they would come up with some new boards with equal interval grooves. So, I was ecstatic when I learned that they would be releasing 2 new boards - The Boxer and Envelobox Creator. Yay!

My project is a combination of a Treat Box + Treat Bag + Card in one. I discovered this by accident. I made a mistake in cutting one of my cardstocks and didn't want to throw it away.  So I came up with the idea of making a Treat Bag and combining it with the Treat Box and Card. It worked! Don't you just love it when you try to cover a mistake and you come up with a totally unexpected and awesome end result. I love it! I love making boxes, and not only ordinary boxes. I always want to challenge myself to think outside the box (excuse the pun), and to experiment. The goal? To make an ordinary box, extraordinary. Having the right tool is the key. And if you love making perfect boxes like me, the Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool + The BOXER and ENVELOBOX boards should be on your MUST HAVE list.

I adorned my Treat Box with 3D Die-cut Decoupage and Rub-Ons stickers from the Fairyopolis Card Making Kit. I filled it with Dove Chocolates and some Mini Rose flowers. Sometimes every little detail counts.
I then put some Ghirardelli chocolates in a clear plastic Treat Bag. I tied a ribbon as a handle  between the Card and the Treat Box. 
I decorated my Card with Pin-Wheel Rosettes that I made with the new BOXER board. Please see below for the tutorial on how I made them.
