I am absolutely in love with popcorn any and all flavors of course. So this year I was able to participate in the Popcorn Box Blog Hop which is where a bunch of bloggers get to decorate a cute little popcorn box and show off their projects. Of course there is not much I like more than crafting and popcorn, so combining the two just seems natural. Each blogger was sent a popcorn box, courtesy of World Market along with some other goodies like lotion from Udderly Smooth, felt from Kunin Group Felt, stickers and pencils from Oriental Trading, die cuts from Adorn It and Ellison/Sizzix and it was all organized by the amazingly talented Laura Kelly. I love fun mail like this!
The smokey chipotle popcorn is delicious. I love the smokey paprika flavor and the subtle sweetness of the chipotle is the best! Pop your popcorn like usual and add 3 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter. In a small container add ground chipotle, ground sea salt, ground smoked paprika and a small amount of sugar. Mix together and sprinkle on your popcorn. Trust me, it’s addictive.
- 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground chipotle chile
- 1/2 teaspoon ground sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
- Pop popcorn with olive oil or your preferred method of popcorn popping. Pour melted butter on popcorn once done. In a small bowl mix spices and sprinkle on popcorn. Eat!
To decorate my popcorn box, I wanted to continue with my creepy glamourous Halloween theme that I have going on this year and the purple and black. I cut out flowers using my Silhouette which I decorated with black rhinestones. I added an elegant spider to the mix as well.
For the background paper I went to my craft stash and pulled out this large stamp from Stampendous that I never used. It’s called Cling Lacy Background which I embossed with this gold embossing powder.
The popcorn box shape was traced on the paper, cut out and glued on. Then I used the black trim from the Kunin Group on the box to hide the stamp line. It turned out pretty darn adorable!
