Snowflake Gift Packaging for Hot Chocolate Stirer Sticks - Video Tutorial
I am in Brussels at the moment, I flew in yesterday for Stampin' Ups annual convention 'On Stage'. Imagine 600+ demonstrators from all over the world converging for 3 days of all things Stampin' and you have a bit of an idea of the fun we're having.
I did get a sneak peak of the new catalogue which launches in January today - I can't share that with you all just yet but I will have lots of sneak peaks for you all coming soon.
As I am in Brussels, a place famous for its chocolate, it felt only fitting that today's project had a chocolate theme to it.
I first made hot chocolate swizzle sticks a couple of years ago and honestly, they have ruined the instant stuff for me ever since.
They are incredibly easy to make and taste sooooo good - come back tomorrow for the recipe.
Today's video shows how to make the very simple but striking packaging.
I initially made a box to house these but I didn't like the way the swizzle stick was hidden. Using a cellophane bag seemed like a good compromise.
The tray is stamped all over with the snow flake emblem from the Snow Place stamp set. I love this stamp for making backgrounds. I stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed in silver.
If you're not sure how to heat emboss I have a technique video HERE
Here is the video for the box - it is a quite simple project but I hope you like it.
