Hello everyone, Eva Pizarro here today bringing you some handmade gifts inspired by this Memorial Day.
In Chile we don’t celebrate Memorial Day but that doesn’t mean I don’t get to be inspired by all the wonderful crafts I see this time of the year! I decided to make some gifts inspired by the colors, the theme and the stars that are traditional to the Memorial Day holiday.
My gifts are chocolate bars, and to embellish them I made a box using my Envelope Punch Board by WRMK. I measured the chocolate bar and then scored and punched my paper following the measurements you find on the board. To give some height to the box, I added 1/2 inch and scored again.
Then, I trimmed the four little corners and closed the envelope box.
I wrapped some paper around the box and then (of course) embellished it. I used some acetate attached to some stars to give my decorations a little movement.
Afterwards, I added a message with a scalloped paper.
I also did this one with some die cut stars and a polaroid frame.
I hope you like them! I am sure you can find someone in your life to give thanks with this sweet treat!
