I love taking packaging as inspiration for handmade projects, a few weeks ago I was shopping with a friend and spotted a long thin box of chocolates, and just knew I had to buy it and re-create it. Now, that box wasn’t all that exciting, but using an existing box makes it much easier to re-engineer a box to fit the same items! So, the original box held 5 chocolates, my version holds 3, but I think 3 of these indulgent chocolates is enough!
I have made this box a few times now, with punched out sections, and designer series paper, but may favourite has to be this Brushed Gold version. The photo doesn’t do the colour of this cardstock justice, but I think I managed to capture the shine in the video.
I also grabbed one of the new wedding themed stamp sets from the Spring/Summer catalogue for the stamped sentiment – Your Perfect Day, punched out perfectly (pun intended) with the 1 1/4″ circle punch. I just love the look of these two punched layered on top of each other, the bottom layer is a 1 3/8″ circle punched from Blackberry Bliss cardstock (love that colour!)
Cardstock = 8 1/4 x 6 1/2″ (21 x 17 cm)
Score on the long side first at – 1/2, 2, 6 1/4 and 7 3/4″ (1 , 5, 16, and 20 cm)
Score on the short side at 1/2, 2, 3 1/2 and 5″ (1, 5, 9, 13 cm)
