Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
Remember my post two weeks ago? I made a chocolate box for Grandma and obviously needed one for Grandpa too. I don’t know about you, but even though I’m the only woman in the house and thus I’m surrounded by boys, it’s still quite difficult for me to create masculine projects. I always worry about not going too much on embellishments, or not make it too sweet… And so making this chocolate box was not so easy, but the Vintage Romance and Home For the Holidays collections came to help 🙂
I basically kept the same design pattern as with the Grandma’s box, but used blue and brown palette and of course masculine motives like this handsome man 😉
I added some more cut outs and chipboard pieces and the stamped sentiment that says: Grandpa, you’re superb! 🙂
I thought a little glam would not hurt, right? And so I added some glitter cardstock to the sides:
Inside I added soem stamping on background papers and also a tag to make writing wishes easier – you just pull it out and write not worrying about the decorated other side 🙂
Although I was a bit ill-at-ease, I really like the way the box turned out: masculine, but elegant with brown glitter cardstock to emphasise the celebration. What do you think?
Here’s what I used:
