Rocky Road Box

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!

RR box

RR box belly band

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!

Mini Treat Bag

I love the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies and it couldn’t be easier to create the mini treat bag using the Thinlits and your Big Shot. You can put treats, a note or a gift card inside.  I love that it will fit (opened up – see the last picture)  inside our medium envelopes!

It comes with 2 dies to make the bag and 10 more dies to add extra details.  I will admit that it has a hefty price tag but you receive so much more than just the die to create the bag.

Here’s another one where I haven’t folded the top of the bag over.
