The looooong break - Back with the House of Cards

Hello Peeeps :)

It has been a long break for me. But I am back, and with lots of ispirations stored in my mind and eager to start crafting again. I have bought me a little house on my own and have a new craft room. This I will show off in a blogpost when I am all done there in a short time. I am so pleased with it, and proud.

But now, this month challenge theme, LOVE or color over at the House of Cards.

I choose to dekorate a chocolate box. Norwegian Freia Melkehjerter - Thiny flakes of heart shaped milk chocolate. Yummy. ;)

Why, because I think it is boring to give "just" money or a gift card, so I like to dekorate a chocolate box or something to put the real gift into it.

This is what I do, open the packing all the way to it is completly flat. The container with the chocolate and proctection film, I put in the frigde.... dangerous to have it beside you....  hehe

I cover it all the on the outside, no need for doing ht inside... I cover and cut the paper alonge your "template". Then glue it all together. PST! You need to leave one side open so you can put your chocolate container inside wen your done.

You can use any of your favorite chocolate boxes or other treat boxes.

I like to decorate the inside before I do the the outside. But before I do so, I ink up every egde and corner so I dont see the white egdes of the papers.

Here I have made a pocket for money or a gift card.

Here is a detalje og how it look.
I have used a die sett from Marianne design and it made it more feminin.

I rekomend to stamp on the smaler heart before you glue it to the other panel. When you are happy with your stamping and layering, then glue it to the inside, just glue along the egdes of the V of the heart, leaving top and inside opend.

Tip is to fold some scrap paper and leave it in the pocket to it has dried.

The theme I choose for this box became vintage, a style I often use and like a lot. But you use what ever you like to decorate with.

Here is layer, bling, metals, lace swirls and vintage photo. Doilie napkins and ornamented dies I also used. Pleased with how it all worked together.

Hope it inspired you to make a something fabulous for this months challenge.
