Candy Box with Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit
I finally received my Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit yesterday, featuring the stamp set, "Hello, Beautiful", as well as papers and embellishments from Crate Paper "Hello Love" and a set of little heart dies that I will use over and over. I have been seeing so many amazing projects using it on social media and it was killing me that I didn't have it. I am so happy it arrived so that I can create with it!
Here is a picture of the kit:
Those ombre stickers are my favorite but I didn't use the on my first project. I decided to make a Valentine treat box. I previously purchased some plastic tab-top boxes from PaperMart. If you haven't discovered PaperMart, you have to check it out. You will usually have to purchase items in bulk, but they have options to purchase a smaller quantity (10-20) if you don't need 200. Great option. I bought these boxes. They were out of the smaller ones so I purchased the 4 1/2" X 7" boxes and they turned out to be a great size. I filled mine with candy, but they are big enough for baked goods as well. Here are some pictures of my completed project:
I used some papers from the Crate Paper "Hello Love" 6X6 paper pad, as well as some of the epoxy stickers. To fit the box, I cut the papers down to 4 1/4" wide. I scored it at 3" and 5". I used Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders to cut a decorative edge. I then cut a piece of solid pink card stock to 4 1/4" X 6 1/2" and adhered it to the short side. I distressed all of the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink (my favorite for distressing). I added a little adhesive to the bottom and inserted it into the box.
I blended some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and used Sizzix Tim Holtz Tag Framelits to cut a tag. I stamped a sentiment on it from the stamp set. I also cut a tag from a piece of the patterned paper and layered it with the inked tag and added a piece of twine. I used Peacock Feathers Distress stain to stain a piece of Tim Holtz Crinkle ribbon. I added it to the top of the box using a couple of holes I punched through the plastic. I was having trouble getting the glue to stick to the plastic, so this worked out the best for me. I tied the twine from the tag onto the ribbon and added the bow.
I'm happy with how it turned out. I made a few other boxes, using supplies from my Valentine's Day craft "arsenal". Here is a picture of the others. The photo quality is not that great, but I think you get an idea of how they look:
I hope you enjoy! Thank you for visiting my blog!
I am entering this project in that Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is "Anything Goes". This is my first time participating in this challenge!
