Valentine Box




Good Morning peeps. Happy Hump Day!

Today I have a quick and fun little project to show you. You can find the directions to make your own Acetate Treat Box on splitcoast. I modify mine just a bit to make it a little taller. I added a inch to the measurement for the height of the acetate piece.

These boxes are so much fun and went together very quickly. I spent more time deciding on colors and a stamp set than it took to put together the box. My Happy Heart set is out on loan to a friend and my new stamps have not been shipped yet, so I took out this set from last year. Happy Heart Day I think is the name of it. I stamped the tag image on PTI white cardstock with black stazon ink and colored in the hearts and border with my Pretty in Pink marker. I layered it onto another punched out tag of pretty in pink as well. I added stardust stickles to the hearts. the top heart is one half of the butterfly in the same set, cut out and popped up on a dimensional. The tag itself is mounted to the box with dimensionals as well. I added a fun little mini library clip to the tag.

Filled the box with some pretty Valentine kisses and made a handle with pretty in pink tafetta ribbon. First of my Valentine treats done!!!

That's all I have for today, thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Stamping.
