From the Heart – Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals January 2018 Blog Hop! Our theme this month is “From the Heart” featuring heartfelt projects like Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and Sympathy. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

My project for today’s blog hop is a tiny winged-lid box that fits a Lindor Truffle or a Ferrero Rocher! It’s a 1-3/8″ cube! So cute! And a perfect way to gift a chocolate from the heart!

My inspiration for this project came from Brigitte Keiling, a fellow German demonstrator. I converted her metric measurements to inches and had so much fun choosing different colors and embellishments! And Heidi Smith is the originator of this project! I am so inspired by these talented demonstrators!

Here’s an open view:

And here’s a top view:

The box closes with a hidden magnetic closure:

Sneaky, huh? And one last view for you:

  1. Excellent class tonight Julie, this was my first class with you and you made it so easy to follow. I did make a little correction on my part and it worked out fine after your suggestion. Already looking forward to next Wednesday evening!
