Chocolate Orange Gift Box for Valentine's Day using Stampin' Up Heart Happiness

For Valentine's Day me and my partner just give a small usually chocolate gift and we have a nice candle lit dinner in the house. We found that over the years going out on February 14th means you pay more and get a set menu tats not as nice as normal. Roses suddenly double in price and we are tight basically! lol!

However, this does not mean that the token present cannot be made to look a little special. So I like to dress up the gift. This year I have a Chocolate orange and decided to make a lidded box for it.

Stamp set used

For this project I used the Heart Happiness set which is in the new Spring Summer Catalogue. I was lucky enough to recieve this set FREE for attending On Stage. This is the 6 monthly event that Stampin' Up puts on for Demonstrators to launch the  new catalogues and reward our hard work. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of FREE products I have received since I joined Stamping' Up. I have worked in 2 public sector jobs, I was a nurse for the NHS and a Teacher in Secondary school and I have never received a reward for my work, most times we didn't even get a pay rise!

This stamp set if just lots and lots of hearts - I used the striped heart as the main decoration and the scattered mini hearts as back ground for the lit. 

Sentiment stamp

I stamp the sentiment over the heart on the lid.  I first stamped the heart off and then used the second generation ink for the actual image so that the words in the sentiment would show up because I was using the same colour, Dapper Denim. 

The sentiment was taken form the stamp set Eastern Beauty - I love this stamp set and is probably my favourite in the Annual Catalogue 

Finishing touches

I added a ribbon around the box lit, I used the retired Rushed ribbon and some retired enamel heats. .

The box fits the chocolate range perfectly and I just love how Dapper Denim looks on Whisper White.

So now you know what you need to make this why not gather all the stash and press play on the video and craft along with me :-)



I look forward to seeing you again next time
