3D Thursday: Chocolate Square Holder

Happy Thursday! My post is late today due to my 5 year old being sick. He’s been running a temp for two days now, and is absolutely miserable. I HATE when my kids are sick. I apologize for not having this up earlier!

Sarah Wills is this week’s designer and she has created this super cute chocolate square holder. It is designed to perfectly hold three Ghiardelli chocolate squares (my favorite!) She designed her project using items for Valentine’s Day, but this could very easily be used for any occasion just by switching up the colors, papers, and sentiment!

Isn’t this such a sweet project? It would make a perfect little gift for school kids, coworkers, or anyone you just want to wish a sweet Happy Valentine’s Day to! You can download Sarah’s FREE project sheet HERE (or click on the image below)!

Sorry for the super short post today, but I’ve got my hands fiull with my little guy. I will be back soon with a new project and post!

Have a great day!

3D Thursday: Valentine’s Mini Pizza Box

It’s Thursday again (already!), and that means it’s time for another 3D Thursday project! This week, it was my turn to create, and since we’ve all been sick in my house (even the cat), I needed something relatively quick and easy to make for my post. So I came up with this decorated Mini Pizza Box! Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided to go with a Valentine’s theme, but it can easily be adapted for any occasion, just by switching up papers, images , and sentiments!

Here are step by step instructions for creating this cute little treat box:

1. Assemble the Mini Pizza Box. Cut two pieces of 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 inch pieces of From My Heart Specialty DSP. (One will be used on the top of the Mini Pizza Box and the other will be used to line the bottom of the inside of the box.) Use Snail Adhesive to attach one to the top of the box and one to the inside.

2. Place 5 foil wrapped chocolate hearts (or other treat of your choice) in the box.

3. Close the box and wrap a piece of ribbon around the box so that it wraps around all four sides and closes the box tight. Attach the ends of the ribbon to the top of the box using mini glue dots. Attach a Heart Doily to the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

4. Stamp the sentiment in Real Red and the arrow in Flirty Flamingo onto Shimmery White cardstock. Punch the heart with the small heart from the Heart Punch Pack. Fussy cut the arrow using Paper Snips.

5. Lay the arrow over the doily and adhere with glue dots. Then, attach the heart sentiment over it with dimensionals.

6. Apply three small epoxy hearts to the sentiment piece and color them with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends to add a little more color and detail. Attach the full completed heart to the top of the box using dimensionals, and the project is complete!

Here’s a quick peek at the inside of the box:

3D Thursday Design Team Halloween Blog Hop

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope you all have a great day today! It’s supposed to rain like crazy tonight here in CT, so not sure what’s happening with trick or treating yet. (I also work in a school, so please pray for me and ALL school personnel, as the kids have already been crazy this week, and it’s only going to get worse! LOL!)

The 3D Thursday Design Team has some fun Halloween treats for you today! Please feel free to hop through all of our blogs to see what we have created. I hope you will also visit and “like” our team Facebook page too. I will provide the link at the end of today’s post!

My project today is a cute little witch hat that holds some sweet treats! I made the hat from Basic Black cardstock, filled the inside with Hershey Kisses, closed up the bottom with a piece of clear Window Sheet, then decorated it as shown. I even found Halloween themed Hershey Kisses, which were perfect to fill this with. This was such a fun project to create!

Here are the step by step instructions I followed to create this project:

  1. To start, I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut two black circles from Basic Black cardstock. I used the largest circle in the set, which has a diameter of approximately 2-7/8 inches. I punched a hole in the center of one using the 1-1/2 inch Circle Punch, and a hole in the other with the 1-3/8 inch Scallop Circle Punch. I also cut a 3 x 4 inch rectangular piece of Basic Black cardstock and a 2 inch circle Window Sheet piece.

2. I used a Bone Folder to loosen up the fibers of the rectangular piece of black cardstock, and rolled it into a cone shape. I used Glue Dots to secure the ends of the cones so that it kept its shape.

3. I then fed the cone through the hole of the round piece with the 1-1/2 inch opening until it snugly fit the hole. I used Paper Snips to trim the bottom of the cone to about 1/2 inch in length, then cut slits all around the bottom of the cone.

4. I flattened the flaps against the underside of the hat’s brim, and adhered with Glue Dots. Next, I filled the inside of the hat with Hershey Kisses.

5. Once the hat was filled, I applied Glue Dots around the outside edge of the Window Sheet circle and adhered it over the opening to hold the Hershey Kisses inside. Then, I layered and adhered the second black circle over the window sheet to create a clean, finished bottom.

Once the hat was complete, I decorated it as shown above. I applied some spider web images with VersaMark ink, and lightly heat embossed the hat to give it some added detail and shimmer. I also wrapped black shimmer ribbon around the bottom of the hat, added some green vellum leaves, and a little purple spider with one googly eye. The sentiment is from the Boo to You stamp set, and is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink, while the whole sentiment piece is sponged lightly with Sahara Sand ink. I also crimped the top of the hat and folded it over a bit to give it an old and worn look (or at least that’s the look I was going for!)

You can find a complete list of all the supplies I used to create this project at the very end of this post. Please continue through the rest of our projects to see what other fun treat holders we have come up with for you today! The next stop on our hop is Debbie Henderson’s page.
