Hello, Design Dazzle readers! My name is Dawn of Revel and Glitter, a creative lifestyle and entertaining blog. I’m thrilled to be back for my 8th Christmas Wonderful, sharing my free Christmas cassette tape labels download! I’m always sharing with my readers easy DIY ideas and I’m often inspired by the simplest things.
I’m a child of the 80s, so any chance I get to be nostalgic is always a good day. When I first came across this boom box candy mold, you know I had to have it. I just didn’t know when it would be used. Recently, I fell down the Amazon rabbit hole and discovered small pillow boxes, which would fit one said boom box candy!
A few years ago, I created cassette tape labels for Valentine’s Day and knew a Christmas version had to be created. What would be a better stocking stuffer or Christmas place setting treat than some chocolate dressed up with Christmas cassette tape labels?
- Click here or on the image above to download my free labels and print on full-sheet sticker paper.
- Trim the labels and attach to the top of the pillow box.
- Don’t have sticker paper? Feel free to print on regular paper and attach with dry adhesive. In either case, make sure your printer is set to ‘Actual size’.
- Head to your favorite craft store for candy melts; I do love chocolate, but white candy melt works just as well.
- To be honest, any color/flavor you choose…just follow the melting directions on the bag to melt the candy to the correct consistency.
- Next, fill the candy mold with the melted candy, carefully tapping the mold lightly so any air bubbles will float to the surface.
- Place the filled mold in the fridge or freezer until the entire bottom of the mold looks frosted over and candy is set.
- Free the candy from the mold by turning the mold over about an inch from a flat surface; if the candy does not release, gently flex or tap the tops of the each mold section to loosen them.
- Assemble the pillow box and place a candy boom box inside, then close the pillow box.
In case you missed it, I love a good pun or two.
Not feeling the pillow box idea? Print the labels on white cardstock, trim and punch a hole through a corner, an instant gift tag tied on to a present with ribbon.
I hope you have been inspired to create a little sweet fun this holiday. Making moments special don’t require a lot of money, just a little time and love.
