Marshmallow Madness Love It!

December 10, 2009

I had my niece two weekends ago & we ran all over the place (electric light night parade, tree lighting & shopping) so when I had my nephew this past weekend & we had nothing planned I felt bad & needed to do something with the kids.  So we made some truffles & the kids mixed up some Homemade Marshmallows.  Some vanilla & peppermint & boy are they good.  The recipe says to keep them no longer then 3 days so I had to divide them up & give them out.  Which brings me to the Marshmallow package.  Matt’s boss loves Hot Chocolate so I packaged up some for him.  What do you think?

I altered the sizes but it is basically the Acetate Box.  Click on the link & it will take you to the directions.  I made my box larger so my acetate sheet is two pieces put together at the edges.  I inserted 3 layers of 4 of the Homemade Marshmallows.  Here are a few more shots.  I’m just getting used to taking different angles so not sure how great they will be but enjoy.

This is a close up of the wrapping band around the center of the acetate.  I inked up the stamp from the level II Hostess set with my Stampin’ Write Markers.  Real Red & Glorious Green & left the outside edge uninked.  Once I was done with that I punched it out with the oval punch & then I punched out a scallop oval in real red & layered them & added them to the band of DSP from the Simply Scrappin’ Kit & wrapped it around the acetate.  Here is a quick shot from the side.  You really have to try these marshmallows.  Not real hard & they taste great even after the three days & they make fantastic looking presents when they are packaged up.

Here is what the top of the box looks like ~ there are directions on how this box closes up & it really closes up the box nicely.  Have fun trying it out.

I also wanted to let everyone know that Stampin’ Up! is starting a
