Boxing It Up!!

I got this box of Mrs. Fields candy at the Dollar Spot at Target. Normally I would pass up something like that because it's not usually a name brand, but Mrs. Fields??? You can't go wrong with that!!! LOL

I created a box for the candy. Yes, I know the candy already comes in a box but what fun is that??? And where is the challenge there??? Plus it's not as pretty as a box you can create!!! Ok, have I sold you on this idea yet??? LOL

To make this box I cut a piece of Ballet Blue card stock 8-1/8" x 6-1/4".

I used white craft ink and the Stampin' Up! "Snowflake" wheel. Then I sprinkled on some Heat n Stick glitter. I heat set the glitter and then came the scoring.

I scored on the long side at 2", 3-1/8", 5" and 6-1/8". Then I scored the short side at 1". I took the card stock out and turned it to the other side and scored it at 1". I wanted to make sure that each side was equal and that was the easiest way to do it.

I used the medium size oval and punched out an area close to where the oval wording is on the box of candy. I am sure I could have done a better job had I given some consideration to turning the card stock over when punching!!! Oh well!!! It is close enough, their whole oval wording does show through!!!.

Now I just decorated it and it was ready for a very special person!!!

This box is a fun pattern to play with because you can either glue that flap down or decorate it more like a card. For mine I chose to decorate it!

Now I'm sure that Target has more of these candies since I just bought it and the bins were full to the brim!!! Well, at our local Target they were!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

Wanda - These are great. I love your sample. I purchased these boxes of chocolate last year and wrapped them in Martha Stewart Gold paper with ribbon for my mom's 75 birthday party. They were simple gorgeous!

Yours looks great. I am thinking they would make co workers gifts this year!
