Roses are Red Violets are Blue Chocolate/Money Holder


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a project that is very versatile and could be used in two different ways if not a few more that I haven't thought about yet.  I used products from the From My Heart Suite to create my project.  If you need to make some treats for Valentine's Day you still have time to do so.  I designed my project to hold either a Whitman's Chocolate Bar or maybe a little cash.  Here's a look at my project.
 
I cut my card stock down and scored it.  My cardstock was cut at 8 1/8 x 7 3/4.  I scored it on the 7 3/4" side at 5/8 & 7 1/8.  On the 8 1/8" side it was scored at 1 1/2, 2 1/8, 4 5/8, 5 1/4.  I then cut it so that I would have a side wall on both side and then rounded the top flaps corners.  I cut a piece of the From my Heart Speciality Designer Series paper to 6 x 2 1/2 and rounded the bottom corners to match the rounded corners of the chocolate/money wallet.  I then stamped the dotted heart in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper white cardstock and punched it out with the matching punch from the Heart punch pack.  I inked my sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink and cleaned off the red and blue and used my stampin' write markers in Real Red and Blueberry Bushel to ink them up before stamping them in the center of the heart.  I placed to dimensionals behind the punched out heart at the top and bottom to create a channel so the ribbon would move freely.  I decorated the outside with the Heart Epoxy Droplets that I colored with both Real Red Stampin' blends before adhering them down.  I ran about 28" of the Real Red Double stitched ribbon around the box and tied it in a bow to secure.  I then added the heart over it and secured the ribbon on the back with a mini glue dot, just for a little extra security.
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have been inspired a little.  If you need any of these supplies you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.  I will be kicking off my Treat Week 2020 tomorrow where I will be bringing you 7 super cute treat packing video tutorials all week long.  So I will have a new video for you each day this week so you will want to make sure you check back in each day to see what's happening.  I am just going to tell you that these projects are super cute and really easier than they look. They will also range in skill levels so there will be something for everyone.

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! Shopping List below.  
Happy Stampin'
