Valentine Treat Box


Here is the supplies you will need for your box. 2 8x11 sheets of solid color paper, 1 sheet of designer paper, Desired shape in 3 stages (Spellbinders Labels One used here) , adhesive and embellishments

Step 1

Die cut (2 pieces) the lid and the base using the largest shape you choose. I am using Spellbinders Label one shape. Die cut  the designer piece in the second largest shape. Set aside these pieces for now

Step 2

To create the box lid and base, you will need 2 piece of solid color paper. Cut both pieces of card stock 4x4 inches. Once cut score at 1/2 inch on all 4 sides of each piece of paper as shown. Fold the edges, cut the two ends to create the tabs for the box

Step 3

Add adhesive to the little tabs and to the bottom of each box. This is what will adhere to your die shapes we cut

Step 4

Remove ONLY the side tabs to create your box. Leave the large strips to adhere later. See picture

Step 5

Once both boxes are created remove the center adhesive from one and center onto the die shape used

Step 6

When adding the box to the lid portion place the box onto of the bottom as shown above. This works better when attaching the lid and centering all edges evenly

Step 7

The box should look like this and ready to decorate

Step 8

My final creation all decorated. Image used is Beep Beep, I love you. I added some lace trim and ribbon along with some pearls for fun. The flowers and his heart have a little bit of sparkle added to them. Hope you enjoy your new Valentine box.
