Valentine's Box

This is a box I made to put valentine goodies in for my son.

I started with a box that some coffee came in. I used Stampin' Up! paper for everything.

I put glue all over the box and layed the paper flat on the box. Before it dried I loosely refolded the box so the paper would "dry" in the right shape.

After the glue had dried I cut away the excess paper.

I used my Cricut to cut the emblem, letters and hearts. The cartridges I used are storybook, home accents, opposites attract, and cuttin' up.

I cut a piece of barely banana to used a a background and glued that to the front of the box. I put a fire and ice brad in the center of the emblem and glued that to the yellow piece. Then I ran my ribbon through my small xyron sticker maker and wrapped it around the box. The bow was tied seperately.

I punch a hold in the top of the box and used gold cord to hold all the hearts and the word "love" at the top so they would dangle a bit.
