Chocolate Box!



Want a box of CHOCOLATES? Who doesn't ? I was blog browsing the other night and found this cutie patootie box on Chi Chi's Blog. I thought I would give it the Kimberly Spin and this is what I came up with. These little boxes hold 3 Ghiradelli chocolates and perfect for any little gift to give that perfect someone. I decided to use my beloved Doodle This set. So much fun! I used Kraft paper and stamped with Black Stazon. I used my watercolor crayons and aqua painter to paint the doodles. I have found the Watercolor Crayons to be more vibrant with color when using them on Kraft CS rather than just my ink pad and Aqua Painter. I also stamped the doodle flower with Black Stazon on Kraft and colored with my crayons. I inked the edges of the box and flower with choc. chip dye ink. I added accents with the White gel pen. Real Red cardstock was used to make a small belly band to keep the lid of the box shut. I used that adorable LABEL punch and stamped 'thanks' from Everyday Flexible Phrases (how did we live without that set??). Lastly, I added a button in the middle of the flower for extra umph! Put a little linen thread in those things and viola, you have one cute button! I love that these little boxes stand up very well and just are so stinkin cute! Now to get back to more stampin'! Lots to do, no time to do it in!!!
