Heartfelt Creations -Christmas Card Collection

Happy Wednesday everyone......It's that time of week again where I have my Heartfelt Creations project to share with you all.  Over on the Heartfelt Creations blog you will not only find lot's of fantastic projects by the Design Team but a sneak peak at the new collection which launches next Wednesday called Season Of Joy!
I have made a chocolate bar box...... A lovely idea that I saw demonstrated some time ago on Create and Craft TV!
I must apologise first for not being able to upload my photo tutorial on how I made my box.....I took photo's when I made my box and well1 can't find them ekkkk don't you hate it when this happens! So I made another box and have taken about 20 pictures with my nice new camera that I got for my birthday and guess what? They have all come out blurred and I don't know why, so started making another box, messed with the setting of my camera and still blurred.....So I have finally given up and have got to wait for my son to come home later this evening so he can put it back to the settings it was when I got it lol....I really am feeling dipsy today, but I promise I will have picture tutorial when my camera has been sorted!! x On the plus side I am going to have a lot of chocolate bar gift boxes to give away as presents:)

So to my box:

 
Heartfelt Creations products Used:
Other Products Used:
 Very pale olive green card stock, Blue card stock, Olive green ribbon, Stickles Glitter Glue, Adhesive, Score Board, Pearls on string, decorative pearls, cream cotton lace, Die cutting machine (ie: Grand Calibur)

Instructions 

Measure the bar of chocolate that wish to make the box for. Make the box about 1/4” larger in diameter so that the chocolate slides in nicely. For the box I have used pale olive green card stock.  To decorate the main box I have cut the bird on a holly branch topper from the Christmas Card paper Collection which fits perfectly on the front of the box. Adhere the topper. Cut the sentiments, again from the paper collection and adhere on to the topper. Die cut 2 decorative shapes in olive green card from the Ornamental Add on Die cut Set and also 2 from blue card. Cut the olive green ones in half and cut the tips of the blue ones. Now adhere these to the box as in picture. For the lid I have cut a ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the paper collection and adhered in place. Add the lace around the bottom edge of the lid. Now decorate both the lid and main box with pearls and ribbon, finishing off with lots of glitter. This really is a quick make by just using the papers, but of course you could always use the stamps if you wish!

 
Again apologise for no picture tutorial today, but I will be doing one soon:)
