The other day while at the grocery store, I saw my favorite candy bar! Why the excitement? It’s because I don’t see it very often. I used to purchase them at the only store in town that carried them and then all of a sudden they were no longer on the shelves. When I saw ten of them at the grocery store, yes, I grabbed all ten of them! Who knows if they will be restocked so I did what I needed to do and into my cart they went! Ever since I can remember, this was also my dad’s favorite so it really makes me think of him and smile.
On to my project! For the last several days I’ve been playing around with my Envelope Punch Board and thought it would be fun to make a box (did you know that this punch board isn’t just for making envelopes???) that fit the candy bar perfectly.
It took a little playing around with it, but here’s what I came up with!
Once the box was made, I did have to make a few adjustments so that the box would close. You can see the two ends that would normally be pointed but I cut off just enough so that the box would shut. I used the Stacked with Love DSP pack to make a belly band around the box. Each of the sheets in the pack are 4 1/2″ wide but I cut my down to 3 inches. After wrapping the paper around the box I tied it up with our beautiful organza ribbon. I used some sparkly silver glimmer paper to attach my sentiment to and using white Baker’s Twine, I wrapped it around the ribbon.
Nothing says you care like giving someone their favorite candy bar wrapped up in a pretty little box!

It is always nice to have something to put a check or cash in over the holidays. I made this money holder using our Winter Frost paper. I will be sad to see this paper go in a few weeks. If you love it as much as I do, be sure to get it while you can! I made a belly band to keep the holder closed and embellished it using the Festive Flurry stamp set and matching Framelits. It really, really sparkles in person but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t get a photo that showed how pretty it is!

I’m sure you know someone that you would like to give a little treat to. This is a fun way to wrap it up! The canning jar is oversized and so I was able to fit an entire bag of Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark squares inside. The first thing I did was to wrap a piece of Washi Tape around the outside of the jar. My snowflakes were made with the stamp set Festive Flurry and cut out with the matching Festive Flurry Framelits Dies. Some of the snowflakes were not stamped but just cut out with the Framelits and Silver Glimmer paper. I used dimensionals on each snowflake as I stacked them on top of each other. When I wrote the name on the top it seemed a bit plain so I used the little snowflake in the set Snow Day first. I inked up the stamp, stamped on my grid paper and then onto my circle. If you decide to make any of these, I would LOVE to receive an email from you and see what you’ve created!
