This Whimsie Doodles Blog Hop Post is Brought to you by the Letter....


Have you guessed it? It's the letter E!  For EMERGENCY....chocolate EMERGENCY!!  We all know what it is like to have that kind of emergency, don't we?? 
My project features the chocolates from the brand spakin' new Whimsie Doodles rubber stamp set called Lil Cupid
Eeeek!  I know right-- Whimsie Doodles in RUBBER--- how exciting?!?!?!!!


To make this little box, I took a pre-made Martha Stewart box and used a circle punch to make a hole in the lid.  Then I attached a piece of acetate from underneath to make a window.  The inside of the box is waxed and food safe-- so it is perfect for an emergency chocolate stash for your favorite chocoholic!

Ingredients:  Stamps: Whimsie Doodles {chocolates from Lil Cupid}; Cardstock: SU!{Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink}; DP: Basic Grey; Ink: Tim Holtz {Vintage Photo}; Ribbon: Michael's; Twine: SU!; Other: Copics, 3D Dots, button.

Don't forget to leave the other Doodlelicious Divas some love!
Nikki (you are here!)
