DIY: Valentine's Day Candy Boxes


Hello Everyone!

With Valentine’s Day being right around the corner, you may be looking for a simple project to make which can be given as a gift. If this is you, then you will love today’s DIY because it is only 3 steps and can be completed in under an hour!

Today, I will be showing you how to make some simple DIY Valentine’s Day Candy Boxes! If you have been following the blog for a while, then you know that I love to make candy boxes for about every holiday (check out my Easter, Halloween and Christmas candy boxes). Since Valentine’s Day (along with Easter) is a holiday which is drowning in chocolate, I thought it would be fun to show you how to make a simple candy box.

The candy box that I am making today is on the smaller side but it’s the perfect size if you are wanting to give a small gift to your friends or coworkers!

So, if you want to learn how to make your own Valentine’s Day Candy Boxes, then keep reading below!

Supplies
Small Paper Mache Round Boxes
Wooden Letters or Shapes 
Paintbrush


Step 1: Grab all of your wooden letters/shapes and begin sliding them through your Xyron 3 Inch Disposable Sticker Maker. Keep repeating this process until you have run each wooden piece through your Xyron Sticker Maker.


Step 2: Now take each of your wooden pieces and rub the top of the sticker paper. Then peel each wooden piece off the sticker paper and adhere them to the lid of your paper mache boxes.


Step 3: Paint your paper mache boxes and then set them aside to dry. 

For my paper mache boxes, I first painted them in a solid color, like Electric Pink, and then set them aside to dry. Once the boxes were dried, I then went back and lightly brush some 24K Gold on top of the solid paint to give it a bit more punch!

Once your boxes are dry and you are happy with how they look, you are now ready to fill them with candy!

I loved how these little candy boxes turned out and you really can’t beat a 3 step DIY!

Besides making these candy boxes for Valentine’s Day, you could also make these candy boxes throughout the year for different holidays! For example, if you had a wooden bunny shape, you could easily use this idea for Easter.

So, what do you think? Do you like these Valentine’s Day Candy Boxes?

Paper House Productions: Candy Dish Featuring The Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers


Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing my latest DIY project that I created for the Paper House Productions Design Team!

Before I talk about my project, I wanted to briefly say that as a member of the design team I do get free products to create awesome DIY projects. More specifically, Paper House Productions is sponsoring this post. With that being said, as a member of their design team, my projects will appear on the Paper House Productions blog instead of mine own. However, I will write these types of posts to keep you guys up-to-date about what is going on!

Now that we have all of that out of the way, let's get back to the project!
 
The project that I made for Paper House Productions this month is a Candy Dish Featuring The Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers! Now, if you have been following my blog for a while, then you know that I love to make simple projects that involve recycling materials. Well, for this project, I grabbed an old fall scented candle and repurposed it as a candle dish! By doing this, I gave new life to an old candle jar that was pretty darn expensive (if we are being honest).

To decorate the candy dish I used the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers from Paper House Productions. These puffy stickers were perfect for this project because 1) they looked like the perfect conversation heart and 2) they added some great dimension to the candy dish! With that being said, I was going for a Valentine's Day theme for this particular project. However, when making your own candy dish, you can use any type of stickers that you like.

Paper House Productions: Hidden Souvenir Storage Featuring The Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing my latest DIY project that I created for the Paper House Productions Design Team!

Before I talk about my project, I wanted to briefly say that as a member of the design team I do get free products to create awesome DIY projects. More specifically, Paper House Productions is sponsoring this post. With that being said, as a member of their design team, my projects will appear on the Paper House Productions blog instead of mine own. However, I will write these types of posts to keep you guys up-to-date about what is going on!

Now that we have all of that out of the way, let's get back to the project!
 
The project/item that I made for Paper House Productions is a piece of Hidden Souvenir Storage Featuring The Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers! This project is designed to help you keep your souvenir items (from a particular trip) all in one place while also acting as a piece of home decor. For example, you can display photos or postcards from your trip on the front of the box and use the back portion to store all your souvenir from that trip.

To decorate the box, I used the new Destinations Stickers from Paper House Productions. If you are not familiar with the Destinations Stickers, they are basically a group of stickers that have a certain destinations theme. For example, in the project I made, I used the Travel-France 2D Stickers which features cathedrals, museums, and vineyards in the sticker packet.

Overall, this project is super easy to make and it really got me thinking about how much I don't travel (haha)! Traveling, in general, is something I would like to improve upon this year.

Also, in regards to the Destination Stickers, there are stickers for both countries and states!
