Made With Heart Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Made With Heart Blog Hop! If you got here from Kristin's Blog, you are in the right spot. If you just so happened to stumble across my blog and the hop today, please go to Kristin's Blog to start at the beginning. You aren't going to want to miss any of these stops, there are a lot of talented ladies on this hop and I am sure you are going to get a lot of inspiration today. :)

Let's get started. :) For my project, I decided to make a little container to hold some candies in out of a plastic chinese take-out box that I got from the dollar store. I also made a cute little card using some sweet treat cups.

Cute huh? (You can click on the picture to enlarge) The container was so simple to make! I stamped my images from the Filled with Love Stamp set from SU! and embossed them with white embossing powder. I popped them up on the container with some dimensionals and added some real red ribbon around the box and tied a knot. I cut some ribbon strips to decorate the handle and that was it! So simple to make but I think it looks so cute and perfect for Valentines Day.

For my sweet treat cup card, that was a little bit more challenging. I couldn't figure out how to make it so the card wasn't destroyed when it was time to take out the candy. I found this great tutorial on how to make a trap door, so that is what I ended up doing. Once I watched the video, it all made sense and was also really simple to do.

Now, what is a Valentine hop without a little candy? I am offering up the following prize to one lucky follower of my blog:

You will get, 1 package of Basic Grey Undressed self adhesive chipboard and 1 package of Making Memories Vintage Findings 8 x 8 paper pad. All you have to do is

1. Be or become a follower of my blog


2. leave me a comment
(make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win)
