Valentine's Day Treats


Every Month our CEO, Shelli Garnder hosts a challenge. It is open to everyone, so click here to check it out and submit away your beautiful projects. Of course today's the last day and I procrastinated in typing up the instructions on how to make this project.

My niece and nephew love Dum lollipops and M&M's so I decided to make this cute little treat holder for the two of them.

I took a piece of 2 3/4" x 12" piece of card stock. I scored at 4", 5.5", 9.5", 11". Then I scored 1.5" across the bottom. Before I assembled the box, I made sure I punched across the top. This will be the bottom of the project.

The top I repeated it, but 3" x 12" piece of card stock and repeated the scoring but I made sure to score at 1/16" less. So the first score was at 3 15/16". By scoring the across a 1/16" less, this makes the box just a little smaller so that the box top fits into the bottom. Before I assembled the box, I made sure I punched the holes on the top for the lollipops.

Ingredients to make the box:
Stamp Sets: Love you much
Ink: Rose Red
Paper: Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pad, Rose Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Rose Red double stitched ribbon
Tools: Heart to heart punch, Scallop circle punch, Crop-a-dile
