Happy Valentine's Day :)

Hi everyone :)

Happy Valentine's Day! :)

I wanted to share with you the Valentine's Box I made for Brookie's school party :)

Some of the higher-ups at work bought my team some gourmet treats that came in gold tiered boxes .... so I took two of the boxes and cut holes through the tops to make one big box for her Valentines :)


Here are the boxes I started out with :) I cut holes in both lids to have her Valentines go all the way through to the bottom :)




And here is what I turned it into :)




I used the January Paper Made Bakery kit ....which included MME 6x6 papers, SRM stickers and SRM tube :)





Here is the inside ... not that pretty... lol... my cutting through THICK cardboard lids skills are not up to PAR!!! LOL! :)

 



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Very cute! Washi tape would cover up the rough edges nicely - just a thought. :)

A two-tiered candy/Valentines holder? Awesome!! The mix of patterned papers you used is fantastic. I had to smile at the cutting cardboard comment (I cannot cut heavy cardboard at all)--the way you covered it with the pp is fab!!
