Fourth of July Candy Box
Design Team: Pam Bray Week 12 Cycle 9
Red, White, Blue & Delicious! See how Pam Bray is packaging candy for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday! She of course is using Core'dinations sandable cardstock for much added texture! See her impressive project below!
Friday is the Fourth of July and what better way to celebrate besides with fireworks and BBQ but to make up some quick and easy candy boxes to give to your guest. I used my Candy Box Punch Board to make mine but you can also find a die that will cut them out.
I started my candy box by first cutting a square from a piece of Blue Nostalgia Paper Pad, scoring and punching it on the punch board.
Once it was cut and scored I ran it through my eBosser from Craftwell using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder from Teresa Collins.
Love how it distress the paper because of the deep impressions from the eBosser...didn't even need to sand the piece.
I ran my border through using a piece of the American Made red paper using the platforms...
The Red Cor'dinations Nostalgia paper was also embossed using an argyle embossing folder. My stars were cut and layered using a die...layering the center with pop dots to make them look like they are exploding off the page, add a bit of twine and you have a fun gift box to fill with your favorite candy.
Hope you have safe and fabulous Fourth of July.
