Valentine Kisses Box

Valentine’s Day allows us to show others how much we care,  and this simple Valentine’s Kisses  Box will allow you to do that without breaking the bank.  By following the instructions below, you can make FOUR of these simple, treat boxes from one sheet of cardstock.  The added bonus to this project is that the True Love stamp set supports Operation Smile.  (Another way to show you care.) At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I’ve used to create this project.

Paper Needed: 5″ x 4¼” Cardstock (I used Blossom), 1½” x 4½” Cardstock (I used Raspberry), 2½” x 3″ Window Sheet, 2″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock

Assembly Instructions:
1. With the 5″ side at the top, use the scoring blade of the paper cutter to score the
5″ x 4¼” piece of cardstock at 1¼”, 2½”, and 3¾”.
3. Fold the 5″ x 4¼” piece of cardstock in half along the score line, and center a 2″ acrylic block ½” down from the fold. Trace the block and cut out the window. kissboxpicone
4. With the 2½” side at the top, use the scoring blade of the paper cutter to score the window sheet at 1¼”. (Note: I use old Cricut mat covers as window sheets.)
5. Fold the window sheet in half along the score line and use a bone folder to create a crease. Using Glue Dots, adhere the window sheet to the inside of the cutout matching the crease with the score line.
6. Using Raspberry Ink, stamp the “XOXO” sentiment onto the right side below the window on the outside of the box.
7. Lay the 5″ x 4¼” cardstock flat so that the inside of the box faces up and the sentiment is at the top (facing down). Using Glue Dots, adhere 5 pieces of candy to the bottom flap inside the box.kissboxpictwo
8. Fold the top over the candy and adhere the bottom flaps of the box together to close.
9. Attach the triangle box to the 1½” x 4½” base.
10. Using Black Memento Ink, stamp the Girl image on the White Daisy cardstock.  Color the image with ShinHan markers, then cut out the image.  Attach the image to the front of the box using Thin 3D Foam tape.

Pint Size Valentine Treat

This Valentine Treat container was created for the weekly  Color My Heart Dare challenge. These four-inch containers can be filled with a special gift to give for Valentine’s Day.  The added bonus: these containers are currently on Clearance along with over 100 other items on my website.  At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I’ve used to create this project.PintSizeValentineTreat.jpg

Paper Needed: 12″ x 5″ B&T Paper (I used Lagoon Adventure Fundamentals), 2½” x 4″ B&T Paper (I used Lagoon Adventure Fundamentals), 2¼” x 3½” B&T Paper (I used Raspberry Adventure Fundamentals), 1¾” x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock, 2″ White Daisy Cricut Rose, 12″ x ½” B&T Paper (I used Raspberry Adventure Fundamentals),
2″ x ½” B&T Paper (I used Raspberry Adventure Fundamentals)

Assembly Instructions:
1. Wrap the 12″ x 5″ B&T Paper around the cup, trimming as needed. (NOTE: I created a pattern for covering the outside of the cup.  Email me for a PDF of the pattern.) 
2. Cut a chevron into one of the shorter ends of the 2½” x 4″ B&T Paper and the
2¼” x 3½”B&T Paper. Layer the two pieces and adhere together.
3. Cut a chevron onto the shorter end of the  1¾” x 3″ White Daisy cardstock . Using the second generation stamping technique, stamp the Heart image onto the right side of the cardstock with Lagoon Ink.
4. Using Black Ink, stamp the sentiment onto the Heart image.
5. Wrap a piece of Pink Twine twice around the 1¾” x 3″ White Daisy cardstock, just to the left of the stamped image. Tie a knot and trim the ends. (Note: The Piercing & Embossing tool helps to separate the strings on the twine for a frayed look.)
6. Attach the 1¾” x 3″ White Daisy cardstock to the layered B&T papers. Adhere the layered label to the front of the Pint Size Cup.
6. Using the Cricut, cut a 2″ Rose from the White Daisy cardstock. I used a Accent 2 on page 54 of the Artiste Cartridge.
7. With a sponge, apply ink the the edges of the Rose cutout. Using a Quilling tool, roll the rose and adhere the petals to the base. ( I used Liquid Glass.) Once the adhesive has dried, adhere the Rose to the upper left side of the label.
8. Wrap the 12″ x ½” B&T Paper around the rim of the lid.
It will not be long enough so you will need to fill the gap with the 2″ x ½” B&T Paper.
9. Fill the treat container with candy, granola, snack mix, toys, nail polish, etc. and give it as a gift to brighten someone’s day.
