Some of my most favorite projects were made from this die, so when I received this, I thought I would just use it as it's namesake, for candy.
These little cuties will not only make great Valentines treats by themselves, but fill them with chocolates and candies and you've got the sweetest Valentines Day gift around and your recipient will surely love it. I hope you enjoy!
These were so much fun to make! I love little gift boxes and I simply adore this die. So let me show you how I made these.
From Sizzix I used the following: Candy Drawer / Box from Eileen Hull, Mini Paper Rosettes, Stacked Words: Valentines Decorative Strip, White Mat Board, Premium Crease Pad, and Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine.
Additional supplies that I used: Pattern paper from Authentique & Tim Holtz Seasonal, Drawer pulls from Tim Holtz, Seasonal stickers from Tim Holtz, die cuts from Authentique, Vintage photo distressing ink from Ranger, 1/4" hole punch, black pen, silver tinsel from Melissa Frances, scrap piece of black ribbon, silver german glass glitter, red line tape, power bond adhesive from Tombow, hot glue and spray adhesive.
Okay lets get started:
From pattern paper, die cut pieces from the Candy Drawer die, then die cut mat board, (I used a premium crease pad for this so I would get my crease lines).
Using a good permanent adhesive, adhere the pattern paper to the mat board, then use red-line tape or hot glue to secure the ends of the mat board together.
Once your boxes are assembled, use distressing ink to ink the outer edges, (I chose not to ink the insides of the box because I will be putting chocolate into them).
For the drawer pulls, I simply cut a strip of contrasting pattern paper, adhered it to the the front of the box, then when I positioned my drawer pull to where I wanted it, I "dotted" the inside with a pen, then punched a 1/4" hole and secured to the drawer pull with brads.
Then embellish your boxes with ribbon and die cuts and for the top box I simply die cutted a rosette from pattern paper and assembled it, adhered some tinsel underneath the rosette and adhered it to the box using hot glue. For the "14" on top of the rosette, after die cutting the number, spray it lightly with adhesive, sprinkle on some silver glass glitter and adhere the numbers to the rosette using hot glue.
Then fill your boxes with a variety of chocolates and your ready to give the ultimate Valentines Day gift. I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope I've inspired you to create your own candy boxes.
