An announcement with a bit of sparkle

This month is all about LOVE and I get to start it off with a big bang - or a little sparkle.

First up I am so excited to announce that I'm now a Scrap Chick Designer at My Scrap Chick!  I have previously used My Scrap Chick designs and absolutely adore them, there is so much to choose from, scope to embellish and a cracking design team to inspire you!

I also want you to know that I am a girl with paper and scissors - I don't have a fancy shmancy cutting machine AND I can still create using all the templates at My Scrap Chick! Just like these Fire Cracker Boxes.

I just had to add real sparklers to the lids! I used some awesome Valentine's themed, double sided papers and cut out each of the parts of the boxes, then using my hot glue gun, pieced them together.  I added some copper coloured washi tape to the lids and then inserted a whole in the lid to push the sparkler through.

I was lucky enough to find these beautiful gold sparklers which I hot glued into the lids.  I trimmed the ends so that I could fill the containers with chocolates.

These were so easy to make and made a great show when all lit up.

Head over to My Scrap Chick and join the Sale!
