Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to present something a little bit different. It is a first chocolate box decorated by me. It’s gonna be a perfect way to say “Thank you” with the sweet surprise inside.

Chocolate Box

Simple and easy composition, cause “Thank you” is the main element here.

When you open the box on the left you will find the chocolate. On the right you can write some wishes, words just from the bottom of your heart. Simple ideas are often the best.

Paper base is the box from Eco-Scrapbooking and  chipboard from Scrapiniec. Paper – Summertime Collection from Maja Design of course. My favourite mix of the best products.

Hope you like it. Hugs, Paulina

Chocolate Box For Grandpa

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:

 

Other: dies: MFT; chipboard: Miszmasz Papierowy, wycinanka; brad: scrap.com.pl; vintage ribbon, metal charm: my stash.

See you!

Chocolate Box For Grandma

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.

 

See you later!Maja-sign
