Hi blog friends and welcome to this Wednesday’s Heartfelt Creations’ Inspiration!  So glad you could pop by.

I want to share with you today a cute little treat box and yet another fun Fancy Fold!

First let me show you the treat box.  I just love the handle on the box using the lovely new Raindrops on Roses die.

Instructions:

Start by building a box 4″ wide x 2 1/2″ deep x 3 1/2″ tall and made a matching top.  For the flap the opens I used a template from another box that I had but for you to make it simply take a strip of card stock 9″ x 2″, measure to find the center of the long edge and measure 2″ out from the center on both sides.  This will be the outside of the flap.  Next, cut starting from the edge of the marks for the edge of the flap to the bottom outside corners of the paper to allow the flap to open and close.  Scor at the edges of the flap marks and insert into the opening.  I made a 4″ x 4″ strip of paper scored in the middle and used this to attach the flap to the bottom of the box.  Decorate the box using your favorite dies cuts, flowers and sentiments and finish the top of the box off with 2 die cuts from the Raindrops and Roses Die to form a handle.  Finally, fill with your favorite sweet and enjoy!

Topsy Turvy Cake Anyone?

Hello blog friends I hope you are enjoying a great Sunday and enjoyed watching the 2014 Winter Olympics!

Over at the JustRite Inspiration blog, Sheri has given us a lovely challenge this time around for the JustRite Friday Challenge – Spring Cheer.  The theme for this challenge is to create a project using a cheerful Spring color palette.  I have a dear friend who will be celebrating a birthday very soon and while looking through my JustRite stamps I came across my Topsy Turvy Cakes stamp set and remembered seeing a Topsy Turvy cake cut file so I decided to do both! I hope she will like it!  This was a fun project to do especially since the stamp matched the cake so perfectly : )   This was the first time I have used the Jewel Flowers and Flourishes die and thought the flowers were fun to make and were a great addition to this project.

and the cool part about the cake box is it opens up into 2 separate boxes so you can include a few goodies!  I had a few special goodies set aside for just a project like this but it appears someone in my household (not mentioning any names…) found them LOL!
