Sweet Valentine Box


Happy Tuesday everyone!

I'm back from Emma's competition in NJ and getting back to work finally. Today's post is a fun project we did for my Love is in the Air Valentine's class. It's super cute and very fun to make.

The box is two Scalloped Envelopes cut with the Big Shot in Close to Cocoa cardstock. They are attached with Sticky Strip with a long piece of matching cardstock that wraps around the sides and bottom. It's just the perfect size for holding four little Love Note cards and envelopes!

We decorated the box with a strip of Designer Series Paper from the Riding Hood Red patterns. The front box flap is folded down and fastened with Sticky Strip. We then embellished it with a circle punched with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch in Pink Pirouette, a Close to Cocoa tag layered with the valentine greeting on Whisper White. It's stamped with Riding Hood Red and colored in with the Blender Pens and Pink Pirouette ink. This cute tag stamp is from Happy Heart Day stamp set and both tag layers were punched with the two Tag Punches. The Riding Hood Red heart comes from the Best Wishes and More stamp set and was stamped on Whisper White cardstock then trimmed out with the Paper Snips. It's mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered on top.

The cute little love note cards are 3 x 3 and are done with Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. The lovebirds, from the Love You Much stamp set, are stamped in Basic Brown then colored in with the Blender Pen and Pink Pirouette ink. The heart part of the stamp is covered with a Riding Hood Red heart punched with the new Heart to Heart punch. The greeting from Best Wishes and More, is stamped along the bottom in Riding Hood Red.
For a final touch, the envelopes are stamped with the birds in the lower left corner in Basic Brown ink.

This is a great project - very easy to do and would make a great gift for any loved one for Valentine's Day!
