Kre8tors Blog Hop Love & Romance

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration!

For today’s hop we are celebrating love and romance in preparation for Valentine’s Day! I decided to make a candy box using the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. I took a Snickers bar and made this custom box for my sweetheart for his Valentine’s Day treat.

I used the Label Me Bold stamp set to stamp the For You From Me sentiments and the little hearts on the Whisper White tag adhered to the top of the box. This is a great stamp set, and I love how the sentiments look like labels from a label maker.

The Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon wraps around the box, and the bow is tied separately and adhered using a glue dot. I think this really finishes the box well. This box is not meant to be opened from the edges, it has a small gap between the top flap and the top edge that can be used to sneak the candy bar out.

I also added a faux chocolate bar with a bite mark using some Early Espresso card stock. You can see all the details on how this box came together in my YouTube tutorial below. I also have written out the measurements for my box, although you can easily custom make your own box by measuring the candy bar you would like to use.

Check out my YouTube video tutorial on directions for putting this box together. It was so much fun to create. Be sure to subscribe to my channel. It’s not too late to get in my 5,000 Subscriber Giveaway. Learn more on my Specials page.

  1. Such a cute idea for your honey! Will be interesting to hear how he opens it… carefully or like a bear ready to eat it after seeing the faux candy bar! Thanks for the inspiration.
