Hi everyone, its Tuesday which means that its me (Katie) again. Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I have one last little *heart* project for you. I adapted this cute little box/carrying case from a gift that was given to me by a friend and thought it was the cutest. I always think candy and since its that time of the year, those boxes of conversation hearts just popped into the 'ole brain of mine.
Here's a little picture of it and you can see a bigger version of the completed project at the end. Don't worry, I tend to be "a read the back of the book first" (not all the time, ok) so feel free to head on down to see a larger version of what you will be making.
Here's your list of materials:
So let's get started. This treat holder requires 4 main sections.
2 pieces cut to 3 x 8
Time to score the two 3 x 8 sections:
Time to decorate: I used Spots a Plenty in red:
Then I used the small outline heart from January's stamp of the month with a nice white pigment ink.
Time to create the "wrap" for your candy holder: I have laid it down sideways so you can see how to attach it - easy peasy. Just place one bottom on top of the other.
Now for the boxes that will house your candy boxes: Cut 2 pieces at 4" x 5 1/2"
Time to score:
Line your 5 1/2" length against the top of your scor-pal or scoring tool and score at 1/2", 1 1/2", 4", 5"
More scoring: Flip your cardstock so that the 4" side is lined up at the top of the scor-pal. Score at
2 1/2" and 3 1/2"
Time to cut:
Time to apply your adhesive:
Time to fold:
Time to attach your boxes to the "wrap": I found that there was some give while attaching your boxes to the wrap. I laid the wrap down so I could visually see that my box was even at the edges.
With both boxes attached:
Punch holes at the top for your ribbon:
Thread your ribbon through holes and tie in a knot or bow:
Your done! Decorate front as you wish. I used the Martha Stewart heart border punch to create the scallops and then attached hearts punched out with the Martha Stewart single heart punch that I stamped using the polka dot label stamp from Too Sweet and used pop dots to pop them off the front. The "A Valentine's Wish" sentiment also came from the January stamp of the month.
These are super fun and easy to make so I hope you make a bunch. If you have any questions please feel to e-mail or leave a comment. Thanks so much for stopping by Clearly iStamp and I hope you have a fun and fabulous Tuesday!!!
