I Want Candy.....

Happy Middle of the Week, Sweet Friends!  I'm absolutely giddy to share my project with you today!  If you know anything about me, I can be a bit "dog with a bone" about stuff.  This past weekend, my bone was this sweet little candy box.  It's similar in size and function to a tic tac box. (See size comparison below)

Roaming around Pinterest, I spied this fantastic project.  Not daunted, at all, by the fact that the blog is written in German, I purposed to figure it out!  Now, when you translate the blog, you will quickly realize that the original author was gracious enough to provide a template.

Can you keep a secret?  I abhor.....COMPLETELY ABHOR.......templates.  No, I don't have a reason.  Just a cooky little quirk.....(it's not the only one!)  So, Saturday night, armed with the Hallmark channel and a a glass of wine, I worked it all out.  It took me quite a while, but my sense of accomplishment is great!

The green cardstock is all one piece!!  That's the tricky part.  It's scored, cut, folded and wrapped.  Before you ask, yes!  I will be writing a tutorial for this project because I love it, and you, so much!

I finished things off with some fun stamps from Sweet N Sassy Stamps!  What could be cuter than this sweet little owl image from Bookmark Bits & Pieces?  My sentiment comes from the Owl Be There set.  I think these would make some super cute Easter treats or even favors for a shower....the possibilities are endless!

Here's a photo of my candy box along side a standard gift card to give you some sizing perspective:
That's it for today!  Go get crafty!
Don't forget to be awesome!
