MB Treasurista Design Team Project: Valentine Candy Box

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Hi everyone.  So, it's yet another holiday where we eat way too many sweets and goodies.  Here is a project where you can make your own candy boxes and put a condensed amount of chocolates in it from one normal candy container.  Each altered candy container can hold up to ten chocolates.  The ones you buy in the store hold up to thirty.  So, with one store bought box, you can fill three handmade boxes and give a homemade gift as well.  Here are some pics of how mine turned out.  I will list the products used from Misty's store as well.

The blue fan below was made by staining white seam binding with lindy stamp gang sprays and then using a glue gun to help keep its shape.

The clear acrylic flowers were died green using alcohol inks.  I also made a heart stencil and cut the silver mesh into that shape.  Then, I inked it with alcohol inks as well to get that pinkish tone.

This is what the inside of the box looks like.

Products Used:
Small Acrylic flowers: pink and white
Large Acrylic flowers: pink
Vinatge cream rosette trim with pink flowers
Vintage Picket fence lace
Silver mesh bling
Snow white seam binding
1 inch organza butterflies in ivory
Lace scallop with pink trim

Here is a youtube video going into greater detail
