Big Shot Boxes

At last Friday's class, we made some Valentine Boxes with the Big Shot. Everyone made two of each box and was able to choose whatever Designer Series Paper and ribbon they wanted to use.

These two are made with the Pillow Box Die (or the ear plug box as Richard calls it). They are quite small, as you can see, but sooo cute! Supposedly you can fit a "fun size" candy bar inside, but I couldn't find any. These three little candies you see fit just right, but it is a snug fit.

Stampers chose from the Rock Star stamp in one of the new Level 2 Hostess sets called A Little Somethin', or the Hugs & Kisses stamp from the Love You Much set. There were also a few other stamps to choose from, but these were the most popular.

This box is "Box #2" in the catalog. (FYI: it can work with 8 1/2 x 11 paper.) It is also small, but holds *12* of these Hershey's Nuggets. That is about half a bag. It isn't a treat you'd want to send for the whole class, that's for sure! Normally you can cut out at least two boxes at a time, but we found with this particular die, it was cutting where it should've been scoring. Since the class, another demonstrator told me that if you use the Premium Crease Pad when cutting, you won't have this problem. I have that pad, but had no idea what it was for! ;)

The stamp I used here is the Lovey Dovey stamp from A Little Somethin'.

These are so, SO cute! What a fun class that must have been. I'm there if there's chocolate involved. Too bad I live so far away. Great little gift ideas for Visiting Teaching and such.
