Anything but a Card

Hi everyone,


Feeling rested from the weekend?  Me, yep and ready for a new week…..

Now it is time for  new challenge at Come and Get It this week and it is Anything but a Card.


So what would you create this challenge?


I have gone for some gift ideas: a couple of box ideas for treats.  Could be for a friend or may for Father’s Day that is coming up!


Here is a group shot of what I created and I have taken individual photos a little further in the post.





The Chocolate Slider gift is a great surprise and so easy to make. There are many tutorials on the internet if you have not given this a go.







I have added a chocolate block to the inside of the box and when you pull the ribbon up the block of chocolate slides out. 


I have used Soft Suede card stock some Attic Boutique DSP and the flower from the Creative Elements stamp set. The flower has been stamped in So Saffron and Calypso Coral and cut and layered together with Dimensionals. The ribbon is a retired Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon.








The other two little boxes have been created out a of a piece of card which is 6” x 6” and is from a tutorial I found on Craft Project Central.

The first little box has been created with Pool Party cardstock and some butterflies from the Beautiful Wings die cut.  The ribbon is a retired Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon.


I added some Ferrero Rocher’s to this box.



The last little creation was so quick to do.  I used Calypso Coral cardstock and embossed with black embossing powder the swirl from the Creative Elements stamp set.




Added the holes for the ribbon and weaved the ribbon (Very Vanilla) through and pulled it tight.


I added some mixed chocolates and lollies to little gift box but you could add almost anything.  I have added two flowers to two sides of the box so that they matched the Chocolate Slider.





Three little gift boxes and no cards in sight!  We would love you to show us what you would create so please stop by and see what the other Design Team members have created and join in!


I would like to submit these project into the following challenges:
