Sanded Core'dinations: Metal Style Chocolate Gift Box

Hello everyone from Kathie McGuire. My project today uses a technique called Sanded Core'dinations from the 4/10 newsletter. The substrate for this project is a metal sheet rather than white core paper. I found these sheets at Add A Little Dazzle and thought they'd look good on a box. The box is a Stampin' Up! die and four of the Hershey's nuggets candies fit perfectly in it. I used some silver cardstock to wrap around the candies and ran them through a Cuttlebug folder beforehand.The Fleur-de-lis is a Jolee's embellishment I bought at a craft store. After I die cut the box and put it together, I measured the areas where I wanted to add the bits of metals and simply cut the metal with scissors. So easy to do. I attached the metal to the box with Fabric Glue--it works beautifully! Thanks for stopping by today and taking a look at another one of my chocolate gift box projects! Kathie
