Pals Paper Arts #26

Play at Pals Paper Arts today! Just create your *new* "Anything But a Card," upload it with a direct link to your blog post or online gallery, credit PPA26 and you are on your way to sharing your love of paper crafting!

This is such a simple project! And it is large enough to hold an entire bag of Hershey Kisses--okay minus the two I ate while creating! Chocolate is my weakness, what can I say?

I took a 9 x 9" piece of designer paper from the Sending Love Specialty pack and scored it three inches from each end all the way around. Then I punched each side, beginning in the middle with my Eyelet Border punch. Fold on the score lines, then fold in the four corners and voila!--you have a square box with a 3" bottom and 3" sides. 

I took each corner and used my 1/8" punch to make a hole to thread my Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon to close up my box. Filled it with chocolates and let a sweet card candy hang from the Silver Stretch Cord.

The Card Candy tag is made from a Large Oval punched out of Very Vanilla and stamped with a Jet Black Staz On image from Love Bug (hostess). Peeking out from behind is a Word Window punch with the sentiment from Love Bug in Riding Hood Red. It's matted with a Sending Love Specialty paper punched with the Modern Label punch. 

The three punches are set together and adhered to the box just-so with a Stampin' Dimensional.
