Valentine Boxes #1

Here is one of my new creations. I totally copied the tutorial off of Splitcoaststamps. See the link for the complete instructions on how to create this. The tutorials are great for new ideas. I know they helped me get my creative juices flowing. I have included the link below.
There are only a couple of thing that I have changed. I used my Cricut to cut out the tags, and then used my sakura Gelly Roll pen on the butterflies (Garden Whimsy - SU), which made them sparkle just a little bit. As you can see, my corner punch is not SU (sorry Joyce and Kim) but I was at walmart a while ago and they had them there for a $6 a piece. There were 2 different sizes, so I bought both. It is so easy doing the scalloped edge with them. Thanks for showing me how to do the scalloped edge Joyce.

Once I completed putting together the boxes, I filled them with "cheesy" valentines candy. I will also be filling some of them with "weight watchers" candy, as a couple of my work friends (and myself) are on the program and I didn't want to tempt them too much. I hope the recipients will like them.

Well, I have made some other valentines boxes with my Cricut and I will be posting them very soon.

Well, I am off now to try and complete the Wednesday Card Sketch Challenge and to wait for the new MFT stamps to be released. I am excited about the new sets.
