Decorative Candy Box

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! How many times does someone (either a friend or co-worker) do something for you or help you out in some way? Do you ever wish that you could give them something special as a mini thank you? Well, I recently had this happen to me and I wanted to thank my friend for my making an awesome recommendation. So, today, I am going to show you how easy it is to turn some plain candy boxes into an extra special thank you gift!

I got the idea to do this project when I wanted to thank a friend for recommending an accountant for my business. I had been trying to find a good accountant for a while and my friend ended up recommended a great accountant for my small business. As a thank you, I wanted to get her some of her favorite candy. However, instead of just giving her the boxes of candy, I wanted to make them extra special!

To do this, I decided to use the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and combine some of the regular scrapbooking paper along with one of the scrapbook quotes This project was super easy to put together and probably took me less than 20 minutes. Also, adding the scrapbooking paper really made the regular candy boxes look a bit more ”fancy”!

To create your own Decorative Candy Boxes, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Measure the front of your candy box and cut out a piece of scrapbooking paper that fits those measurements. Then cut out one of the quotes that can be found in the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad.

For my candy box, I used the ”Enjoy Every Moment” quote and a sheet of the green/gold marble paper.

Step 2

Step 2: Attach your main paper piece to the front of your candy box (I used Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots by 3L). Then punch two holes on either side of your scrapbook quote.

Step 3

Step 3: Run some embroidery thread through your scrapbook quote and tie it around your candy box.

Once you have tied off your embroidery thread, simply fill out a thank you card, and you are ready to give your gift!

I loved how this project turned out and I think its such an easy way to make a simple gift a bit more special!

Before I go, I did want to mention one tip about the candy boxes.

You may have noticed, that there were two candy boxes stacked together in this project. If you decide to give away more than 1 box of candy, my tip would be to add five Scrapbook Adhesives Mini Dots (one in each of the corners and one in the middle) on the top of the second candy box. Then add the first candy box on top of the second candy box. By doing this, your candy boxes will stay together and not slide around.
