Valentine Heart Box

Heart box
This box was made using my new Heart die from QuicKutz new Nesting Doily Hearts.  Isn't it beeeeeutiful?  the die that is!   There are 3 dies to this set and this one is the middle sized one.  I cut 2 of them from red cardstock and one from white.   I trimmed the lacy edge off the white one and using a lacy looking stamp, I stamped around the edge with red ink, then placed it in the center of one of the red doilies.

The box itself was made by cutting 2 red squares, one was 3 1/2 inches, the other was 3 5/8 inches.  I scored all sides of the 2 pieces 3/4 inch in.    I then constructed the box in the usual way.   I placed the box on one of the red heart doilies using Wonder Tape, then placed the other heart on top of the box lid.   I added 2 punched out red glitter hearts to the top along with a red satin bow.   Fill the box with hersheys kisses, or m and ms.   Makes a cute little gift.
