Thanks for stopping by to see my project today! Tomorrow's stop will be hosted by Amy at http://tethered2home.com/ - and I can't wait to see her project! But first, let's check out what I made for today:
Here it is again, stocked with dark hot chocolate, chocolate tea, and milk chocolate sea salt caramels. It would also be great to tote a gift for that special little person in your life; what could be better than a couple of special sugar cookies in each outer pocket and mini tubes of frosting in the center for decorating?! What about travel sizes of some awesome spa products for a friend who travels a lot for work? Assorted packages of embellishments or jewelry parts for a crafty friend? The possibilities are pretty much endless!
A couple of great hints for using this template: I used two sheets of the same double-sided pattern cardstock so the parts flow together seamlessly. Also, I used the "waste" part from the handle cutout as a tag here. I layered it onto a rosette made from coordinating cardstock which I nudged into an oval shape when I adhered it.
It's easy to add a simple decoration to the handle area. If you don't want even the amount of work I went to, it's super easy to just tie a bow through the handle with coordinating ribbon.
Here's a list of the products I used with the template to make this super cute box:
- Pear & Partridge paper pack, CTMH
- Versamark stamp pad
- Red embossing powder
- A Holiday stamp set, (discontinued, CTMH - holly leaves)
- Cranberry and New England Ivy stamp pads, CTMH
- Sparkles red, pink, & purple assortment, CTMH
- Scor Tape
- Foam adhesive tape
- Liquid Glass, CTMH (to adhere rosette to sentiment tag and box)
