I hope you are not tired of hopping and are curious about what I have been making for
the Cuttlebug Valentine bloghop!
I made something sweet for my sweetheart, my husband.
He is not that romantic LOL so I made him a not-over-the-top card with his favorite snack inside, it is a
Dutch cookie, called "Stroopwafel".
A stroopwafel is a waffle made from two thin layers of baked batter with a caramel-like syrup filling in the middle.They were first made in Gouda in the Netherlands, in 1784. Large versions are sold in the streets as a snack.
The stiff batter for the waffles is made from flour, butter, brown sugar, yeast, milk, eggs. Medium sized balls of batter are put on the waffle iron. After the waffle has been baked, and while it's still warm, it's cut into halves. The warm filling, made from syrup, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon, is spread between the waffle halves, gluing them together.
The stroopwafel originates from Gouda in the Netherlands. It was first made during the late 18th century or early 19th century by a baker using leftovers from the bakery, such as breadcrumbs, which were sweetened with syrup. One story describes the invention of the stroopwafel to the baker Gerard Kamphuisen, which would date the first stroopwafels somewhere between 1810, the year when he opened his bakery, and 1840, the year of the oldest known recipe for syrup waffles. In the 19th century, there were around 100 syrup waffle bakers in Gouda, which was the only city in which they were made until 1870. After 1870 they were also made at parties and in markets outside the city of Gouda. In the 20th century, factories started to make stroopwafels. In 1960 there were 17 factories in Gouda alone, of which four are currently still open.
So this is what I made!I used this box before and you can alter it to any size, which is brill if you need an odd shape, like the cookies!
I used a scrap piece of not too pinkish CS and when I made the box, I punched out a border with little hearts! I then found these amazing DSP (Action!!) and put that both on the front as in the inside of the cardbox! I then cuttlebugged the dies from My Creative Time to write my message on! I took the photo without my message ofcourse LOL! For the final touch I added a nice pinkish ribbon!! Hope he likes it...but I am sure he will!

Deze week doen we een heuse Bloghop bij The Cuttlebug Spot en als het goed is kom je net van de blog van Andy!
Ik heb alvast een leuke kaart met inhoud gemaakt voor mijn mannetje, hij is helemaal niet zo romantisch maar is gek op stroopwafels en toen ik deze "Kanjers" zag dacht ik....die gebruik ik voor mijn eigen kanjer, hihi.
Een doosje was snel gemaakt (zie link hierboven) en dankzij het prachtige papier van de Action is het een echt Valentijntje geworden! Ik heb de dies van My Creative Time gebruikt waar ik mijn berichtje op zal schrijven! Ik hoop dat ie het leuk vindt maar eigenlijk weet ik dat wel zeker!
Doe je ook mee met de Hop en win leuke prijzen!!!
