Mini Chocolate Jars

In the past, I haven’t been the biggest fan of the packaging that Stampin’ Up! has sold. Not because I felt the packaging was rubbish or because I didn’t like it – but because I felt I could make my own. However, Stampin’ Up! then decided to release cute packaging like these jars that form part of the Life’s a Peach suite – they are really, really good for last minute gifts and do fit a surprising amount of treats in them.

From the image in the catalogue, you would think these treat jars are tiny but they are a good size – which you will see in my video below.

Mine are going to be used as thank you gifts to pop on tables in my workplace, but you could use them for absolutely anything. I have seen other demonstrators pop jam, curd or marmalade in them and add a Designer Paper Series lid. They are cute in every instance.

What would you put inside yours?

Best Wishes,

Guylian Choc Box


So, I have a bit of a treat for you on today’s post. Not only is this a project that involves chocolate – Guylian chocolate at that. But this is a project WITH A VIDEO TUTORIAL! *screams* I’ve finally given myself a talking to and taken the plunge – let me know what you think!

This project is a gorgeous little box for Guylian chocolates. I’ve focused a on flowers and Christmas recently so decided to strip back to basics on this one and make it simple without using too many different supplies.

Smokey Slate is my grey of choice which I then accented with Cherry Cobbler – LOVE! It may be a new favourite combination of mine. The box is then finished with a bit of twine and a tag to co-ordinate.

Let me know your thoughts!

Best Wishes,
