Hello everyone! It’s Eva here today bringing you a festive Candy Box with a window and a big bow made with the 1,2,3 Punch Board.
Candy Boxes are a great gift for friends, neighbors or work colleagues. They are easy to make and you can make them in a batch using just a few supplies. I made mine using the new Merry Merry line from Pebbles Inc.
Use your 1,2,3 Punch Board to make a medium size box. All the instructions are already on the board so it is super easy!
Use one of your Clear Cut Punches to cut windows on two sides of your box.
To make the big bow cut paper strips to make one Medium Bow Base, 3 Medium Bows and 2 Small Bows. Punch only the Small bows and the Bow Base because the other ones are going to be covered.
Use your Crop a Dile to make small holes on the middle of your bows and layered them. At the end, use a brad to hold everything together.
Use gold printed acetate sheets to cover the windows and decorate your boxes with a small sticker or die cut.
Fill your boxes with your favorite treat. I love Milk Toffee treats, they remind me when I was little and my dad used to buy me and my sister a bag at the movies. I don’t know if you can find toffees in the States but they are easy to make! (I will leave the recipe at the end of the post) you can add walnuts at the end too.
These boxes where very easy and quick to make. My We R tools really made the job easy and I am sure my neighbors are going to love them!
Have a great day!
Milk Toffess (recipe)
2 cups white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup evaporated milk
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 cup butter
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
Grease a 12×15 inch pan. In a medium-size pot, combine sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, evaporated milk, whipping cream, and butter. Monitor the heat of the mixture with a candy thermometer while stirring. When the thermometer reaches 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) remove the pot from the heat.
Stir in vanilla. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan and let the mixture cool completely. When cooled cut the Carmel into small squares and wrap them in wax paper for storage.
