On Sunday I shared the make-and-take projects I shared last week with my coworkers. If you missed the projects and the smiling faces, you can see my post here. I give, I give – and the giving doesn’t stop there. Tomorrow, coworkers in my department (and some friends at work) will receive a little Valentine’s Day treat from me. It’s nothing big, but I hope they’ll like it.
Who doesn’t love Tiny Conversation Hearts? I found little boxes of these sweet treats at my local drug store. For two weeks, I tossed around ideas for how to package these little boxes – an envelope, a tiny gift bag or a little box. So many options! I decided to just wrap the little boxes with strips of Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at one of the sweet boxes:
I simply wrapped a 3-1/2″ wide strip of cardstock around the boxes, creasing at every turn. I left about a 1″ piece of cardstock to pop up with a heart (from the Lots to Love Box Thinlits Dies) and sentiment (from the coordinating Sure do Love You stamp set). Here’s a peek at the side of the treat box:
- Cut a 3-1/2″ x 7″ piece of Fancy Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper.
- Score at 1-3/4″, 2-1/2″, 4-1/4″, 5-1/16″ and 6-1/8″.
- Burnish the score lines with a bone folder – the last piece folds opposite the other folds.
- Adhere the crease at the top with Tear and Tape to secure tightly around the box.
- Decorate with a heart or sentiment.
My friend and team member, Candy Ford, came over Saturday to stamp with me – always fun. I put her to work for a bit when she offered to help me mass-produce these little treat boxes. Thanks, Candy!
Here’s a look at the boxes all lined up together:
Most of my boxes were wrapped with pages with Berry Burst foil – makes sense for Valentine’s Day, right? I I didn’t want to exclude my male coworkers (who probably wouldn’t want a pink gift with a heart on it), so I used Lemon Lime Twist or Soft Sky papers. For the guys, I also switched up the heart and just punched the sentiment with the Tailored Tag punch. Such an easy change for a big difference.
How sweet is that paper?! The Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper is great for cards but perfect for 3-D projects. The heavyweight kraft paper is designed with foil patterns in four colors – Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Softy Sky and Tangerine Tango. Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in this pack of papers:
Bundles: Sure Do Love You Bundle Stamp Sets: Sure Do Love You Papers: Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky, Thick Whisper White Inks: Archival Basic Black Accessories: Lots to Love Box Thinlits Dies, Tailored Tag punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
My coworkers will received this fun treats tomorrow – but I wanted to show them to you today. Even though they all made cards with me on Friday, none of me (as far as I know) reads my blog, so I hope I haven’t ruined the surprise. 🙂
And that’s a wrap!
