Chocolate Box

Hello and Happy Monday!

To start the week, I am hosting the Penny Black blog with this decorative candy box.

I created my own box template so the finished design would measure 1 ¼ inches square and stand 2 inches tall. 

The template was drawn on Blue Lagoon cardstock and stamped with Flower Flourish in Teal Zeal Memento ink.  

Here you can see the stamped piece with the addition of an acetate window.

For added glimmer, the entire piece was sprayed with Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

The medallion on top is fashioned from layers of one segment of the Puzzle Parts border.

Tip/Hint:  Create additional design variations for dimensional elements by slightly offsetting the pattern when layering the components.  In this sample, the second and third layers were turned 90 degrees.

To finish the project….. just fill with yummy goodies!

Thank you for visiting.

Have a sweet day,
