And the blog remains unupdated! So sorry! The only excuse I have is that I have been busy... with everything except for crafting. Job has been taking up a lot of time. Kids activities have too. Meetings, practices, etc. the list is endless. But today I have a cute little Valentine box you might like. It uses up those left over PTI boxes as well.
This is not an original idea, I got it from watching Stamp TV. It was taught by GinaK. If you google Stamp TV clear boxes it is one of the first hits. The boxes that Gina K uses are smaller than the PTI stamp boxes that I used so you can not use her dimensions if you are using PTI boxes. To make the lid and the bottom I used two pieces of hibiscus cardstock that were 8.5 x 4.5 inches. On the short side I scored in at 1 1/8 on each side. On the long side I scored in at just a hair under 1 1/4 inches. I say a hair under because you need the lid especially to be a little loose. Decorate before folding... its so much easier! Tie it all together with some pretty ribbon and add an embellie. All done! BTW, this holds a ton of candy! The first box is filled with hershey kisses (a full bag), the second is filled with Dove hearts (another full bag). So if you want to be a little cheaper maybe add some pretty shredded paper in the bottom.
