Valentine's Day Box Full of Love!

 Today I whipped up a fun Valentine's Day box.  Ok, I didn't actually make the box today.  I made it a few weeks back.  I had ordered a box template that had a cover with it.  I was disappointed in the template and I returned it.  The template had two score lines between the natural "score" line of the box.  It made it very difficult to score it since it made two lines but you really didn't want to fold it there, you wanted to fold it in the middle of those two score lines.  It was difficult to work with so I returned it.  I had made this box and I struggled with it.  I was going to toss it but I decided to work with it, make something with it and not think about the struggle I originally had with it.

SO I used the Valentine's image from the  "It's a Wrap" set and I stamped Regal Rose on my mailing labels.  Once I got the labels put on my Hershey Nuggets I filled the box as you can see in the second photo.  I used the Sizzlets heart die and cut out the red heart.  Then I had the words printed from my computer and punched them out with the heart punch.  I used Glue Dots to put the pieces together.  I don't feel that the snail tape sticks well enough on the texture of that heart. And I also used Glue Dots to stick it to the top of the box.  Then I tied a white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around the box and that was it.  Now you can make your own boxes too.  There is a box maker that you can access and make your own personal size boxes for free.  Just click here and you will be taken right to the site!  I have had a lot of fun making custom size boxes there!!  

Anyway, here is the little Valentine's Day gift I have ready for a special friend!  And no, this is not going in the basket.  I already gave my friend the basket FULL of the Valentine's Day gifts I've been making for the last few weeks and she LOVED it!!!  If you missed out on seeing the full basket you can see it by clicking here.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
