Friendz with He{ART} Scrap-Friendzy Blog Hop


Welcome to your 1st stop on the “Friends with He{ART}” Scrap-Friendzy Blog Hop! If you are following the links from the beginning of the hop, you should have come from the Scrap-Friendzy blog. If not, and you wish to participate in the blog hop, please start at the Scrap-Friendzy blog.

I am happy to share my version of a treat container with you today! It's called a 2-5-7-10 box. I created these Valentine-themed containers just for the blog hop!


What's a 2-5-7-10 box? Great question! It's a little container that you can create with just one sheet of cardstock, some scored lines, and some adhesive. Easy as can be! I found how to make the 2-5-7-10 box on Splitcoast Stampers. You'll definitely want to check out the tutorial on that site! For my containers, I do not stamp on the cardstock (step 3 in the tutorial), I used my threading water punch on my box flap (step 5 in the tutorial), and I added a 2 3/4" x 4 3/4" sheet of patterned paper to the front of my container! My containers are holding three fun size candy bars. These are the perfect size for small Valentine treats!

Your next stop on the blog hop will be Jean's blog. Don't forget to leave a comment here, and on each stop on the blog hop. Then, make sure you finish up at the Scrap-Friendzy forum and post that you have completed the hop. Your name will be entered into a drawing for a fabulous prize! We're also hosting a weekend crop from Friday, February 11 through Sunday, February 13 on the forum. We hope you will join in the fun!


I'm also offering a small RAK during this blog hop! All you need to do to be eligible for this Bo Bunny Cambridge card kit is leave a comment on my blog! I will randomly select a winner! We would love it if you would also post about this Friendz with He{ART} Scrap-Friendzy blog hop on your blog, Facebook, or any other place that allows it!
