Blog Hop Wednesday -- February 1, 2017

Welcome back.  Our challenge this week is to create a project.  Something other than a card.  Our inspiration piece included the below items for examples.

You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite.  She and I were working together last Saturday, so we have seen each other's creations.  You will like hers.  Here is what I have created.

This is a box of sorts that can be used for different purposes.  I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  The Mini Treat Bag is usually a very thin bag which can be used to insert perhaps a candy bar, or a card. Normally you would cut one large piece and one small piece and put it together as instructed.  That will create a flat envelope style holder.  However, if you use the large piece and cut it twice you can put it together to make the opening up to about an inch and a half and have room for larger inserts.   Mine here is about an inch thick.  My picture shows a candy bar, but I plan to put not only the candy bar in the box, but also a Valentine card, or maybe a couple candy bars.  I haven't made a final decision yet.  Other times when I have made this box I've inserted 6 cards and I gave the package as a gift.  Or when I do a school fund raiser I have included it as a door prize with a few Stampin'Up! items inserted.  I love this die and use it often.  The paper I used is Pop of Pink Specialty paper and I also used gold glimmer paper for the heart background piece.  I hope you like my non-card creation.

Now you should continue to Robbie's blogsite,  I can't wait to see what she has done.  Let's go.

Crafty Hugs,
