Ok, ok, I know Valentine’s Day was yesterday but I got behind on my blogging and still had some cute projects that I wanted to share. So Pin these projects or save the pictures so you can remember them for next year – or change up the colors and stamps and make cute little goodies for Easter or Mother’s Day!
First up – a cute little box for holding Hershey’s nuggets and a matching card!
I grabbed some of the Love Impressions Specialty Paper – now found on the clearance rack for only $4.79 a pack! – and got to work decorating.
I used my Heart punch and the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits to create the decoration on the front of the card.
Then I used more of the paper to wrap my nuggets so they look cute when you slide the box out of the sleeve. The nugget wraps were 1” x 3.5” if you are going to do this at home. So you can get a TON out of one sheet of pattern paper.
Then I made a matching 4” x 4” card to go with the box. Here is a close up of the “fun” part of the card!
- Grab the hearts embossing folder from the Adorning Accents embossing folder set. These are not at wide as your standard embossing folder, but are perfect for adding a fun trim to your cards.
- Stamp your sentiment on a rectangle of whisper white cardstock and sponge the edge with Pink Pirouette ink for a subtle pop to your saying.
- Get the cute scallop trim by cutting out 2 of the scallop tags from the Hearts a Flutter framelits and adhere them to the back of your rectangle!
If you want to make your own nugget box, I found this great post on SplitcoastStampers where a wonderful stamper named Chris posted templates for pretty much every size and shape of nugget box. I used the Nugget_Box_6_short template.
So, make and enjoy!
