Happy Friday! With Valentine's Day less than two weeks away I wanted to show you a quick and easy Valentine Treat Box that you can put together in a jiffy! Today's Valentine Treat Box features Stampin' Up's Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies, the Sweet and Sassy Heart Framelits and the Love Sparkles stamp set to create this quick and cute Valentine gift!
How To Make This Valentine Treat Box:
Start by taking a large sheet of Melon Mambo cardstock (about 6"x8) and lining it up on the cutting mat for the Big Shot. Place the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit die on top of the sheet of cardstock, then add a small heart die from the Sweet and Sassy Framelits to the middle of one of the box sides. Die cut the sheet, then remove the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinilit and run the die cut through again to cut a second heart shape from the other box side.
You will repeat step one again to get TWO Curvy Keepsake Box die cuts– you need 2 of them to make the box. Once you have both peices, fold at the score lines and place some Tear and Tape Adhesive across the top of the bottom square piece of the box and add the second square to adhere on top. Your box bottom will be made of two of the square shapes from the die cut and you will be left with all four sides to fold up.
Before folding up your box, add some treats (I added red and pink Smarties) to a Cellophane Bag and tape or tie the bag. My bag was tall, so I cut some of the top of the bag off and then taped down the side to keep the goodies secure.
Add the bag to the bottom square of the box and start bringing up the sides to close it. You will bring together the two loops and then feed the slotted sides over top of the looped sides. This keeps the box closed.
I cut a small tag by die cutting a slightly larger heart from the Sweet and Sassy Framelits from Pink Pirouette cardstock.
Then, I stamped the word Love from the Love Sparkles stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink and added some hearts using the heart stamp from the same stamp set in White Craft ink.
I punched a hole in the heart shaped tag and ran some Black Baker's Twine through it, tying it onto the loops on the Curvy Keepsake Box and tying a bow.
And now my Valentine treat box is ready for a special little Valentine! 😉
