Each month, the Stampin’ Up! team that I am part of does a Facebook hop where a bunch of us create projects based on a theme and then all post them to our Facebook pages. We each post instructions to see the next project by “hopping” to the each person’s page with the links to get from page to page. You go through each page until you get back to the first project you started with. When you have gotten back to where you started, then you have seen all the projects and the hop is complete!
We are having a Facebook hop tonight that features gift bags and boxes. Since Valentine’s Day is next week, I made this little bee themed Valentine’s Day box! I used all different sized punches and cutting dies to make the bee, which was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. I used stamps from the Heart Happiness stamp set for the background hearts and the stripes on the bee’s body, as well as a stamp from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set for the sentiment.
The inside holds four small chocolate hearts. I was given a small box of Divine Milk & Dark Chocolate Belgian Caramel Hearts as a gift, and when I opened the box, my first thought was that the tray inside would probably fit perfectly inside the mini pizza boxes! Turns out it didn’t, but there was very little I had to do to make it fit. I just had to trim a very thin strip all around the edge of the tray and then it fit perfectly!
This is the brand of chocolate that I am referring to:
And here’s what the inside of the finished mini pizza box looks like with the tray trimmed to fit:
Don’t the hearts look yummy? Now that I have finished the project and taken pictures, I can finally eat the chocolate!
This was a really fun project to make! I love punch art, though I don’t do it as often as I would like to! It takes a lot of time and a lot of different products, but the end result is so worth it!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little bee Valentine’s box! Thanks for checking in!
