Valetine Boxes using Spring Holiday Cards

Hello!  Today I would like to share with you two treat boxes I made using the Cricut seasonal cart, Spring Holiday Cards.  This cart has a lot of great simple cuts for Valentine's Day! 

I used the fit to page option on a 12x12 piece of paper in my Cricut Expression.  I then cut a vertical Valentine greeting and cut it at the same size the box cut out as.  I cut it a few times in different papers so that I could cut out the hearts.  I glittered the hearts by running them through my Xyron upside down.  That leaves an even layer of adhesive for the glitter to stick to.  I did one in pink and one in white.  I also added googly eyes because I didn't like the way the eyes on the cuts looked.  I tucked a piece of yellow paper behind the words so they could be seen better (still not the best...).

For the second box, I did much the same process as above.  This time I cut again in yellow for the bee's body, glittered some white wings and the Bee Mine phrase on the bottom.  And some more googly eyes!

Here is a view of the side in case you are wondering how wide these boxes are.  They really were perfect to slip a few pieces of individually wrapped valentine candy inside. 

I hope you have enjoyed and are having a great day!
