Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today :)

In Poland we celebrate Grandmother’s Day on January 21st and Grandfather’s Day a day later. Grandparents play a very important role in Polish families. If they live close to their grandchildren, they often look after the kids when their parents are at work and they can’t afford or don’t want to send the kids to a kindergarten. Thus grandparents take an active part in bringing up children, we even have a saying that your childhood ends when your grandparents die. So the bonds are really strong and even though another saying is that parents are to discipline their kids and grandparents are to spoil them 😉 I can’t imagine life being complete without having grandparents. And so in my today’s post I’d like to share a chocolate bar box for Grandma, which is a good idea for a small gift to celebrate the day :)

I chose papers from the Vintage Romance collection that are universal enough to be used for projects not necessarily about romantic love 😉 I had a ready-made cardstock base for the box,  but you can easily make them yourselves, there are many tutorials in the Internet. I layered some papers in the backround and used a beautiful lady image in the centre:

I added the flower cluster in matching colours and a stamped sentiment which says: “Grandma, you’re wonderful” :)

To add some glam, I placed glitter cardstock strips on the sides of the box:

There is a pocket inside into which you put a chocolate bar, and I added another pocket for a wishes tag, as it would be too uncomfortable to write on the other side of a dimensionally decorated front. I cut out the tag from one of the papers, and also added some stamping to enhance the vintage look:

Now I need to look for some perfect papers for a Grandpa’s chocolate box :)

 

Here’s what I used to make my box:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Tim Holtz; dies: Joy!Crafts; flowers, ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts.
