Happy Valentine's Day!


Hope everyone's having a nice Valentine's Day so far.   Two weeks ago I shared a goody bag I was making for my 6 y.o DD's classmates (if you missed that post, click here) that my 9 y.o. DS thought was too girlish, so I made one very simple for him to give out to his classmates on Valentine's Day. 

This box cut was purchased from the Silhouette store and is cut with the Cameo.  In keeping with my DS's request for a non-girlish Valentine treat, I cut the box in kraft paper.  This box was so easy to assemble as the perforations made it easy to do so.  I actually did not use any adhesives to assemble this box - everything folded and tucked in very neatly together.  I added twine to hold the tag and stamped "XOXO" to the hearts. 

Here are some closeups:




The tag was from the Picturesque cart.  The swirls and the hearts were actually leftover cuts from the goody bags I made for my DD's classmates, as seen on the cutting mat below (I hate throwing away  good cuts). 



Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
