Spellbinders Just For You Candy Box

Hello Friends! Today I would like to show you how to make these candy boxes with my new die set called Just For You Box from my Thoughtful Expressions Collection by Spellbinders. They are very easy to make, all the work is in the die. The die set has 7 pieces which give you several different options on how to decorate the boxes. They are also great for Valentine's Day by using the "I Love You" dies included in the set!!


1. Die cut box base with Just For You Box die set from designer cardstock. Fold at scored lines created by the die.

2. Die cut “Just For You” from designer cardstock. Cut a 1 1/8” x 4 ¾” rectangle from contrasting color cardstock.

4. Cut a 12” piece of silk ribbon, glue to front of box. Adhere “Just For You” panel to box on top of ribbon using E-Z Runner double stick tape. 

5. Adhere double stick tape to all 6 tabs.

6. Assemble box by adhering tabs to box base and lid as pictured below.

7. Die cut 5 candy wrappers with die from designer cardstock. Wrap around Hershey’s Nuggets and secure with double stick tape. Insert candy in the box.

8. To add tiny flowers to the candy, die cut multiple flowers and leaves using the dies included in the set.

Heartfelt Creations - It's Your Special Day Card

Hello Friends! Beautifully ruffled in delicate layers and commonly gifted to express love, fascination, and distinction, the carnation flower is certainly recognizable and a floral garden and arrangement favorite. Thought to be one of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world, the carnation is traditionally associated with the Mother’s Day holiday, but is also known to be a wonderful choice for birthdays, weddings and just because occasions. With an outstanding reputation as a cut flower, and an amazing array of colors and sizes, it is no wonder that the carnation flower remains so popular today! Heartfelt Creations invites you to celebrate the beauty and gentle humbleness of the carnation with the Camelia Carnation Collection! With a color palette of fiery reds, pastel pinks, sunset orange tones, and lush hues of greens, the gorgeous paper collection brings with it a bold but feminine feel. Filled with attractive carnations clusters, exquisite flower gardens, and decorative lace like details, this pretty paper collection is sure to become a perennial favorite. Two cling stamp sets and coordinating dies come together to create enamoring and realistic carnation blossoms with delicately illustrated details and varying sized petals ideal for assembling full sized carnation flowers to charming mini versions, while a third cling stamp set lends itself perfectly to layering and creating dimensional carnation clusters. So join with us as we celebrate and give recognition to the traditional, but somewhat overlooked and under praised carnation flower!
