As much as I love making and sending cards, I am a bit of a two-timer. You see, I also love making and giving little gifts to folks I appreciate. But as I'm sure you know, buying gifts can really add up. So I like to concentrate on finding just a little something and then using my papercrafting know-how to spruce it up into a fabulous and thoughtful gift that really wows the recipient and makes them feel special--even if it is an inexpensive chocolate treat, cocoa envelope, tea bag, microwave popcorn packet, etc.
For today's non-card project, I'm sharing a little harvest-themed truffle box I made and gave to a friend when she invited me to lunch last month.
I used a fabulous printable truffle box template that I found on Splitcoast last month. It's the perfect size for two Ferrero Rocher chocolates. (A couple of Lindor truffles would also fit inside nicely!)
I used not one, not two, but THREE different DeNami Design stamps for this project:
I printed the template directly onto a sheet of cardstock, cut it out, scored the fold lines, and folded up the box so that the printed lines of the template are on the inside of the truffle box. My sweet little pumpkin was colored with colored pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits and paper blending stumps.
When I had completely decorated my little box, I simply popped in two chocolates and tied a bit of Mandarin baker's twine from The Twinery around the box, and I was DONE!
