Valentine Candy Box

Hi Friends,

Here in WA, we have been getting some really sunny weather. Still cool, but sunny. It reminds me that winter will pass and Valentine's Day will be upon us.

I love making cards, but making treats are so fun. Personally, I am drawn to treats, gifts and any kind of DIY posts, and I suspect you like them, too.

Today I am featuring a boutique box that are filled with some chocolate. You can always choose hard candy or different chocolate than I featured. This is to just give you an idea to work with. My goal is to inspire you to make this your own.

{I am doing a Facebook Giveaway for the Boutique Boxes. Enter to win here You have until midnight tonight to enter}

Here are the supplies you will need:

E132 Small Heart Outline
E133 Small Scallop Heart
PF43 Petit Fours Hearts
PF42 Love Sentiments
CB500 Boutique Boxes
Red cardstock
PC21 White Cardstock
Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad
Versafine Satin Red Ink Pad
Tombow Markets red and hot pink
ATG adhesive

Step 1: Stamp the Small Scallop Heart on the White cardstock using the Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. Stamp 3 or as many as you plan to make.
If you are doing a series of gifts, stamp as many as you need. It will save you time in the long run.

 Step 2: Stamp the Small Outline Heart inside the scallop heart. I get it down to where I can see the rubber die and center it. It will take some practice on scratch paper, but it is not hard. Perfection is not necessary. If you are a perfectionist, that is where a stamp positioner will come in handy.

Step 3: Stamp the PF43 Hearts in Versafine Satin Red. That will allow your sentiments to stand out more while still giving it some color. You can choose to just stop at the hearts and not add sentiments. I have shown what it looks like stamped in black for effect.

This is what it looks like stamped in black with no sentiments. The neat thing about this heart collection is it is very versatile. You don't have to use the scallop heart at all and just use the outline heart. You can also just do the petit fours hearts with sentiments, etc. Just mix and match as you please.
This can be great for weddings and anniversaries, so Valentine's Day is just a start.

Step 4: Cut out the hearts and then use an ATG adhesive gun to attach the hearts to the cardstock measured 1 5/8x4 5/8 to fit the Boutique box.

Step 5: Apply ATG tape to your finger so you can peel them onto the candy easily. That is one great use of the ATG tape, you can easily do small areas by just peeling and sticking, without using the applicator gun directly.

Step 6: Attach chocolates to the heart cutouts. Here I used Rolos, but Dove's, Reese's mini cups, and others would work.

Step 7: Take another set of cutouts, color using Tombow markers or any kind of preferred markers and attach to the top of the chocolates.

Step 8: Apple ATG adhesive to the back of the cardstock with the chocolate. This will prevent the cardstock from sliding around and keep the chocolates in place.

Step 9: Carefully put the cardstock in and position it to where you want it. Notice the flap is on top of the boutique box, this is so the flap will close at the bottom without it showing on top. Keep this in mind.

Here's just another angle.

Look how nice and tidy this looks.

Here you can see the dimension even better.

Step 10: Cut ribbon long enough to go around the box to tie a double know. It will be about 18 inches or so.
Then find the middle and add ATG adhesive to it.

Step 11: Attach the ribbon to the bottom of the box and also add more ATG adhesive to the sides of the the box so the ribbon will not slip off. 

Here is another angle

Step 12: Tie a double knot

This is what it looks like on the bottom when the adhesive is on it. The ribbon is not going to slide at all.

Step 13: Loop another strand of ribbon several times and then tie the ribbon on the box to the looped ribbon.

Step 14: Here is the finished bow.

To give a more perfect look, I attached the ATG adhesive to various parts of the ribbon so it would lay nicely. You can put it behind the tails, loops or wherever the ribbon is not behaving:)
Another good reason to use ATG. It is the fix all for so many things.

You can use this same gift idea for Saint Patrick's Day, wedding favors, party favors, bridal showers, etc. Just change to the color you want and the theme. Super easy!

Thanks for joining me. Hope you use this idea to spread lots of joy.
