Hello everyone! It’s Eva on the blog today, sharing a fun tutorial on how to create personalized chocolates for Valentine’s Day.
The new Mold Press is easy to use and you can make your own molds to create soaps, candles, crayons, and of course chocolates! You can find the Mold Press at JOANN and Michaels Stores.
To create my molds, I started with some 1-inch cubes and added the Mold Press letters in the middle.
You can reuse the molds so you only need one mold for every letter of your phrase.
Next, place your cubes on top of your Mold Press. I did 4 letters at a time because the cubes were 1 inch high. If your molds are thinner you can put 5 or 6 in one sheet.
Place your plastic sheet in the base and wait for it to heat up. The plastic will create a bubble on top. Now you are ready for the fun part!
Turn on your vacuum and bring down the base with the plastic. Use heating gloves to protect your hands and make sure the base is aligned to the sides of the Mold Press.
Remove your cubes and fill the molds with chocolate. You can put almonds or other fillings inside!
Next, I created a matchbox with my Trim and Score and those lovely papers from the Go The Scenic Route collection by American Crafts.
Using my Word Punch Board, I added a Happy Valentine’s sentiment to my box.
I also used some chipboards and a tassel to add some color to my box.
Here’s the inside of the box! I put the letters in random order, I think it is fun to decode the message!
I really loved this project. My son loved to help me out and see how the molds were created. Imagine all the cute personalized gifts you can make with the Mold Press!
Have a great day! Eva
