Sorry I've been away from the blog for a few days. I wanted to post a project this weekend but ended up spending it with hubby on an "us time" weekend. I'm working on these cute little aliens for a free project coming up on the blog. I'm also working on the easter class which I hope to have completed by the end of the month. Time is flying by and it seems there are never enough hours in the day! Thanks to all of my loyal readers and followers that are sticking around and waiting for the next project.
Hello everyone, I made a booboo this morning when I was approving comments. I accidentally clicked on the reject button when I was approving 10 of the comments. If you left a comment last night for the blog candy contest and you don't see it at the site this morning, please leave another comment. For anyone who is wondering, I went to moderated comments because I am now allowing anonymous and unverified comments to be posted and this is the only way I can keep control over potential spammers. Thanks!
This cute little candy holder is super easy to make. I got a bag of those Hershey Bliss heart shaped candies and I thought they would be so cute placed inside a mini box of sorts.
1 3/8" Square Punch
Full Heart Punch
Medium Jewelry Tag (optional)
Designer Paper of choice (here, I used Sending Love Specialty)
Cardstock of choice (here I used regal rose)
ribbon of choice (here I used pink tafetta)
stamp and ink of choice (here I used Short & Sweet with black ink)
crop a dile or 1/8" hole punch
scor pal (optional but it does make the job easier)
1) Punch out 2 Full Hearts from designer papers. Punch out 2 squares from cardstock. For each square, score down the middle and then on one half of the square, score down the middle again. Apply sticky strip to the outside scored sections of each square as shown.
2) Tape down the smaller width flap onto the backside of one heart. Tape the other square down on the backside of heart. Then, cut off the points on these pieces as shown (miter).
3) Bring the sides up and tape them together as shown. Tape other heart in place over the backside.
4) Thread the ribbon through the holes and then slip the candy inside. Pull closed at the top (careful not to pull ribbon so hard you break through the paper holes). Tie a bow. Stamp and then punch little tag. Use a needle and linen thread to tie the little tag on.
These would also be cute as little Valentine tree ornaments.
As promised, here is a picture of the blog candy that you can win. I just love the old fashioned vintage color palette of rose, moss, artichoke, suede & gold. One lucky person will win all that you see here. All you need to do is leave a comment on this POST and tell me what your favorite Paper Punch Addiction class/tutorial is. Thanks!
