Hippity Hop January 17, 2011

Hello!! If you just started here than you may want to start over at the Unity Blog to get a list of other blogs to visit for awesome inspiration!

So, this is my first blog post for the New Year. The holidays really took a toll on my time! I had no time for anything, including stamping. But, now that Santa is back in the North Pole and the lights and decorations are down I have a little more time to get back to my passion!

With Valentines Day right around the corner I figured that I should get a move on with the treats that Jarod will be taking to his 3rd grade class. I decided to do a matchbox candy holder filled with Hershey Kisses cause everyone loves Hershey Kisses, right? Especially since they changed them to milk chocolate kisses! So here it is:


I used the Gurnsey Gingham stamp from the Fall 2010 {ippity} collection for the background and the "for you" stamp came from the Totally Happy set from the Summer 2010 collection. You can view my {ippity} sales blog here for more information on how to get them.

Here is another view of the box:


For the window I just used a heart shaped fiskers punch and then taped a piece of plastic behind the heart shape. That way those yummy Hershey Kisses won't fall out! By the way, I got the plastic from the packaging that the punch came in! I like to recycle.

Thank you for visiting my blog!!

Love, Patricia

I'm the weirdo that MUCH prefers dark chocolate, even in my Hershey's kisses, but I do like your little box. The gingham is adorable and I love the little heart punch!
