My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

How Have You Bean?

Hi and Happy Monday,

The team from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is back this morning with a variety of new projects. With Valentine's Day in about a month, my mind has been leaning in that direction ever since the new year began.

For my project today, I used a template from Lauren Meader to create a little treat box. After printing it out, I embellished the front by embossing it and rubbing over it with some chalk to highlight the textured design. I just adore these cute little jelly beans from the Sweet Stuff set and they pair perfectly with the sentiment from the Coffee Talk set. After coloring them with Bic Mark-its, I added some Glossy Effects to give them dimension and shine.
This is the inside with the real life jelly beans, a view of the Velcro closure and the ribbon which I tied around so the bow would be on top.

Thanks for visiting me. I hope this got your creative juices flowing and to see more inspiration you can visit the rest of the team below:

Details not listed above: Paper: Office Max, Chalk: Stampin' Up, Punches: Marvy, Stampin' Up, Ribbon from my supplies.

You are so creative in making those little boxes, I need to try making one, maybe I am afraid it won't come out right or something. I don't know. Yours is adorable! Are you going to give it away? Have a peaceful day!
