Whitman's Chocolate Bar Heart to Heart Treat Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am gong to share with you a super cute box that I made to hold a Whitman's Chocolate Bar.  I wanted to dress up the already cute packaging that the chocolate bar already comes in.  I used the Heart to Heart Bundle to dress up my project.  This is actually a super easy project to do even through it doesn't look like it.  Here's a look at today's project.

The first thing that I did was figure out what size cardstock I needed to create my box.  Once I had the cardstock figured out.  The measurement for my cardstock is 7" x 7 3/4".  On the 7 3/4" side you are going to score at 1 1/2, 1 7/8, 4 5/8, and 5.  On the 7" side you are going to score at 3/8" and 6 5/8".  Once I had everything cut I stamped the solid heart from the Heart to Heart stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink on the front.  I then ran the whisper white cardstock piece through my die cutting machine with the Detailed heart die.  
Once I had the die cut out I took the loose hearts and colored them with my Stampin' Blends.  I colored each heart with either the light of dark Real Red and Flirty Flamingo markers.  I only used one color for each heart.  Once I had that done I sat them aside for later use.  
After coloring the hearts I added the detailed hearts die cut to the front of the box.  To do this I added the heart die cut to the front of the box with a little liquid glue behind the solid hearts and little dots behind all the other hearts that will touch the front.  Once all the glue was applied I placed the detail die cut onto the front of the box.  I let it dry before taking my snips and cutting off what was over hanging.  
After the detailed die cut was dried.  I came back in with my Take Your Pick Tool and a little liquid glue and added just a little glue into the open hearts.  I then picked the colored hearts that I did with my Stampin' Blends and placed them into each open spot I added the glue.  Once the glue was dry I added clear wink of stella to each one.  The wink of stella really doesn't show up very well in the photo but looks of so cute in person.  
To finish off my super cute little box I stamped my sentiment in Flirty Flamingo onto a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock and then stamped the outline from the stamp set in Real Red.  I used the matching Story Label Punch and popped it up in the center of the box with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added two of the colored hearts to the front of the sentiment with a couple mini glue dots.  
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you find my Whitman's Chocolate Bar Box as cute as I do.  I also hope that it will make you think about decorating a few chocolate bars yourself.  I picked mine up at the Dollar Tree.  Which is a great place to pick up certain candy inexpensively.  You can find all the supplies I used in the Stampin' Up!

From My Heart Ferrero Rocher Gift Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my From My Heart Ferrero Rocher Gift Box. I created this box to hold four Ferrero Rocher Candies, (which by the way is one of my favorites). This is a great little project for Valentine's Day, and since it is just around the corner.I used the From My Heart Designer Series Paper for the main focus of my box. Here's a look at the box.

Tips & Tricks:

For the box you will need a 7 x 7" piece of cardstock scored at 2" on all four sides. Well actually its just shy of 7 x 7. I cut it on my new trimmer and came back just one notch on it from the 7" mark so its' 6 and something 16th of an inch. I used both a piece of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo Cardstock for the box bases. I pulled these colors from the designer series paper; which I used for the tops. I cut the tops at 5 x 5 and scored at 1" all the way around.
I stamped my sentiment from the Heartfelt Stamp set in the center of one of the hearts in the Designer Series paper. Most of the sentiments from the stamp set will fit. I used Real Red ink for the sentiment. The little heart you see was also punched from the designer series paper with the dog punch. The heart on this punch is almost a perfect fit, there's just a very little over hang.
