A Valentine for your Sweetheart- Tutorial
Thank you Miss Vicky!

Kay's Christmas Gifts

My thoughtful, wonderful husband created some really cute gift boxes and then filled them with his homemade fudge and took them still warm to the girls at our bank as a thank you for putting up with us this year! lol

Here are the photos I took of him making his project!  Just click the smaller gallery photos to see them full size

I asked him if I could post his fudge recipe and was told it's his old family favorite- which translates to "it's my secret recipe". So, sorry everyone!

I can tell you how he created the box though!

He cut them using garden green retired cardstock using the #115967 Bitty Box & Envelope die and the #113439 Big Shot, he also used the # 117630 Extended Crease pad because any die with score lines on it you HAVE to use a crease pad as your top layer or you will cut right through all the score lines and just have pieces of cut paper. I have some fun white "glitter paper" that I picked up who knows where and we used the Snowflakes Set #2 #113449 sizzlit dies for the glittery snowflakes. Fast and easy!

For the lid, he cut the #117159 Joly Holiday designer paper and then stamped  on Very Vanilla Cardstock the from our house to yours stamp out of the #116471  Sweet Season stamp set page 34 of the catalog.  He used the Wide Oval Punch # 119859 to punch the stamped image out. so fast and so easy!

The stamped image was applied with a dimensional.  I lined each box with foil  while he was cooking away on the fudge! It was easy to use a large spoon to just spoon the fudge into the foil, cover and seal!  He barely had enough time to get them to the ladies at the bank before they closed on Christmas eve at noon!  Talk about last minute- phew!  We love our bank, we love the people who work there and appreciate them so much!

Have a great day, create a few of these for Valentines day using a stamped and punched heart for the top for everyone you know!

He is such a Gem. My mom makes the best divinity fudge. Most times she does not even add coco to her fudge. She usually sticks with plain vanilla divinity.
