Happy little Valentine treat boxes


  • Happy Valentine's Day!
  • Hello Life Project Kit Ideas


  • There is still time to make these fun little Valentine treat boxes that are sure to bring smiles to anyone you give them to.  They are filled with a couple of Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses.  It took a few hours to use one of the wonderful 4X 6 paper packs called Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (Item 137779) from Stampin' Up!  I first saw these on a UK SU demonstrator site called Pootles.

    These cute boxes are created using the Envelope Punch Board.   Cut your paper to 4.5 X 4.5".  Using your Envelope Punch board, punch and score on the first side at 1" and 3"; then rotate and punch and score using the first lines you created as a guide.   These boxes fit two Hershey Kisses perfectly.  





    I made about two dozen from one designer paper pack.  They all fit into a small Priority Mail box, which I shipped to my mom along with the Valentine card below.

    Occasions catalog holds a host of spring card making ideas!

    The Occasions Catalog continues to be my go-to place for CASEing (Case (kas) verb, meaning Copy And Share Everything.  In the world of papercrafting, there is no shame in copying, in fact, its encourages.  Find something you like and copy it exactly or change some of the elements like colors, different designer papers, or different embellishment to make the creation more your own.  Give credit to those you CASE, and share your ideas with others!  CASEing is a great way for your to more quickly enjoy your papercrafting hobby.

     
    Another way for busy people to enjoy papercrafting is buying just what you need to make a project. (very hard for a die-hard papercrafter who must "have it all!) Here's a look at the cover of the Occasions catalog, which includes one of the new kits available. This is a great kit to brighten up your home or to take to someone in a hospital or rest home.   Take a look at the new Occasions catalog and all the great crafting products you need to jumpstart your creativity.  To Place an on-line order through my Stampin' Up! store - 24/7 Shopping .

    Here's one way to finish completing the kit.  (Yes, the black wire frame IS included in the kit). Add your creative flare or CASE these ideas.




    This photo shows the content you'll receive.  All cut and punched for you, giving you more time to exercise your creativity, less time trying to find coordinating pieces for your project.  Some of the contents include Crushed Curry Thick Baker's Twine, Designer Series Paper, the wire frame, needle, and crochet thread.  The kit also makes a great way to show off your family's new addition, your childs latest accomplisments, or a great gift for a crafty friend. Or get together with friends and make your kits together as a great girls-night-out activity. But hurry!  Stampin' Up! kits are available only for a short time.  For more ways to use or expand this kit, visit my Pinterest board at:  https://www.pinterest.com/doross/su-hello-life-project-kit/
