Technique Tuesday-Valentine Box

Hello there! I'm here with a quick tutorial for a Valentine's box made from our Curvy Keepsakes Thinlit. This was one of the items that carried over from the holiday Occasions Catalog and I'm so glad it did. The box itself is super easy to put together, but I thought it needed a window to show off the cute candy inside.

Start by cutting the box piece in two different colors to help add some contrast.
Fold the bottom of the white piece up like this and slide both layers into your Sweetheart punch.
Center in the punch side to side and make sure the bottom of the handle is right at the edge of your punch.
Now you have a heart on the side and a surprise heart on the inside of the box. I didn't think about it before, but it would be super cute to stamp something sweet on the inside heart.  Cut a piece of window sheet to fit over the outside heart and glue down with Fast Fuse. I find it helps to close the box if you run the pieces over the edge of the table to help them curve a bit before folding it up.
That's it. Glue the two bottom pieces together, fold up, fill with goodies and add accents. I used one of the punched hearts and added some Itty Bitty Accents hearts punched from Red Glimmer Paper . The sentiment came from the January Paper Pumpkin kit, but the Groovy Love stamp set has several sentiments that fit on this heart as well. I tied the heart on with Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine.

What do you think? Quick, easy and cute. Love it! 

Till next time...
God's love and blessings!
