I Think I Love You – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes will be inspired by popular songs – the first is “I Think I Love You.” Our Blog Hop today is jam-packed with projects that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or that showcase love. How sweet is that?! We are excited to share our love-themed creations with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Today’s project is a cute little self-closing box for Valentine’s Day!

Here’s a view from the top:

Isn’t that super cute! I first saw this little box from fellow German demonstrator Petra Rosenbaum (Stempel Dich bunt) and just had to convert the measurements and make one! My version doesn’t quite fit a Ferrero Rocher because of the way the top folds into the box, but it will fit a Lindor Truffle or 3 Mini Ghirardelli Squares! Yum!

Here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template I created:

  1. A million thank yous!!! I saw this on Petra’s blog and wanted so badly to make one. The German and metric threw me for quite a loop. You have saved me endless frustrating hours!

  2. This is absolutely amazing, Julie! I love your videos and projects – so clear and so concise. <3 So glad you could hop with us today!

  3. Just when I promised myself I wasn’t going to fall in love with another one of your fantastic boxes, you go and make this! So sweet, and that paper is perfect!

  4. So cute and the tiny pattern on the dsp is just perfect for it! Who wouldn’t love such a sweet treat for VD?!? Thank you for your never ending inspiration!
