This month's Blog Hop theme is Lots of Love. I knew exactly what products I wanted to use for the blog. NEW! Of Course! NEW items from Stampin Up's Occasions catalog!! I will be showing you 2 projects and 1 card for the blog hop. It may seem like alot of products were used. But it really isn't. I used the same colors, DSP and stamp set throughout the projects and cards. So if you do not have alot on hand, this is great, because we are just using same products,in different way. What I decided to make is SUPER easy projects that I can make multiples, in a breeze. As a busy mom of 3, I need to accomplish the most, in what appears to be a very short amount of time. I'm all about coordination!!!!
So here we go....I hope you enjoy what I've prepared for you! I look forward to hearing your feedback!!!
This project was really easy and uses a small amount of paper. The stamping/punches and glimmer could be scraps on hand! But whats better, is the project can be easily duplicated, if you needed to make a lot, it will take no time!!! The envelopes are not very deep, so this treat package would be perfect for a regular Hershey bar or another thin candy bar, a gift card, perhaps a note, as well. You could also add a couple pencils or pens for a school gift. I am debating whether or not to make for my elementary school kids Valentine Swaps...hmmm there's plenty of time to decide...Right??
You can see in the second picture below, that once you fold the sides in, there are these little corners that stick out into the middle of the box. That is because the box will open flat. No worries. Just take a few glue dots and stick them to the sides. Wala, they are out of the way. You can fill the box with little treats...maybe a special piece of jewelry!!
