Crafty Friends Blog Hop Featuring Honey Bee Stamps

Welcome to the monthly Crafty Friends Blog Hop. This month we are featuring all Honey Bee Stamps inspiration.  
Be sure to read clear to the bottom of this post for a special shopping coupon code for Crafty Friends readers and follow along the hop for lots of creative inspiration!

My project is a treat holder.  I've been handing out lots of treats since the quarantine to neighbors, friends and workers.  I modified the Sweet Treats Box into a wrapper and have a short tutorial below.

I also used the Sweet Treats stamp set and dies to decorate this.  I colored the chocolates with Copic Markers.

Sweet Treats Box

I used just the one piece of the die for the wrapper.  It is 3" wide, so I cut my cardstock slightly smaller, maybe 2-7/8" so that I could hang the bottom part out of the die and it would not cut.  I did this twice for two pieces.

I then stamped both of them with the new Buffalo Plaid background stamp.

I added an additional score line at 2".  That was what size I needed for this clear box of caramels.  If you are using a candy bar, just measure the width and see what you might need.

Once I folded on all the score lines, I tucked my new score line folds underneath to create this shape.  
By the way, I'd like to introduce you to my new favorite glue by Bearly Art.  They sent it to me and I said I would try it.  I LOVE IT!  It is a lot like my 'green glue' (Tombow Multi) but the tips choices on this are fabulous.  I will never go back to my other glue and I will always keep this tip on the bottle. It has a pin that comes with it to cap it with and it never clogs.  I seriously am in love with this!!
