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.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Keep the love going by hopping along to the next project!

Decorative Chocolate Box with Eastern Palace

I don’t think I have given the Eastern Medallions Framelits enough chances to really shine this catalog… They are just absolutely STUNNING! I wanted them to be the star of the show on this beautiful little Decorative Chocolate Box.

I don’t think I’ve pulled these framelits out since I used them on one of my Stamping Saturday videos earlier this year. They really are a fun way to add a decorative touch without a lot of fuss!

Measurements:

Box: 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Score @ 1-3/4″ & 3-3/4″
Lid: 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ Score @ 3/4″ & 2-3/4″

Stamping Saturday Session 2

Stamping Saturday Session 2 was a blast! I want to thank all of my subscribers that came over to Facebook to participate with me on the live broadcast!

img_2697

We made an adorable card out of the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set and the wonderful Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape. And the fun treat case was stamped with Thoughtful Branches, which I think may be all depleted and unfortunately no longer available, but I will be confirming that for certain.

I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you!
